Week 5: Using the X-Carve CNC machine

A CNC machine carves objects out of wood, foam and plastic using various types of router bits. We will be learning how to use the Inventables X-Carve machine that we won during the 50 States Contest last year. The X-Carve can create things like guitars, skateboards, signs and furniture. We will also learn about different types of wood and router bits.

But first… we will be taking a look at your finished lasercut clocks.
