In this combined class, students will have the opportunity to learn and become certified on two cutting-edge machines: the CNC Waterjet Cutter and the STV CNC Plasma Cutter. This class is designed for both beginners and advanced users, providing a comprehensive learning experience for all skill levels.
With the CNC Waterjet Cutter, students will learn how to design for the machine, understand its specifications, fixture materials such as ceramic and metal to the bed, and cut their designs. The waterjet cutter offers precise cutting capabilities and can work with a range of materials.
In addition, students will become certified in the use of the STV CNC Plasma Cutter at Machyne Makerspace. This machine features a 48″ x 96″ table and utilizes a Hypertherm65 torch, allowing for cutting up to ½” thick steel. Students will learn how to convert 2D vector designs into CAM files suitable for plasma cutting. They will also explore different cut paths, consider kerf thickness based on material thickness and plasma cutter tips, and delve into design techniques specific to CNC plasma cutting. The Hypertherm65 is capable of cutting mild steel, stainless steel, and aluminum.
Whether you’re new to these machines or already have some experience, this class provides a valuable opportunity to gain certification and enhance your skills in working with the CNC Waterjet Cutter and STV CNC Plasma Cutter.
