CNC102: CNC Vinyl Cutter SBU
Class Number 336-52602

Learn to use the computer-controlled vinyl cutter in this Safety and Basic Use (SBU) class. Import vector (outline) designs from graphic software such as Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW into FlexiStarter, the software used to control the vinyl cutter. Next, use TechShop's CNC vinyl cutter to cut adhesive vinyl sheet into professional looking signage or ready-to-apply paint masking. This is a great tool for making screens for silkscreen printing, too!
