CNC Shopbot Zone

Brief Explanation

The Shopbot is a computer-controlled router that can cut or carve wood. It can cut up to a 4 ft by 14 ft piece of wood. We can use a drawing program, or we can send it a 3D model to tell it what to do.

How it works

It uses stepper motors to move the router through the x, y, and z axis system. A router is like a drill bit, but it is designed to move sideways through wood as well as up and down.

What it makes

It can be used to make furniture: chairs tables, desks, kitchen cabinets, large signs, 3D carvings, and more.
