CNC remote controlOn Thursday 5/5 and Tuesday 10/5 STG held a basic CNC milling workshop using the Roland MDX-40A at Fabriken. We went through the basics on how to set up and calibrate the machine, attach a workpiece and specifying geometry, generating toolpaths of a couple different types (holes, surfacing, from 3d-models) and performing the actual milling.

This will be followed by a PCB-engraving workshop on Sunday 22/5, and also advanced workshops (dates not set, will be posted on the list) including some basic CAD and two-sided milling with supports and using guide-pins.
