CNC401: CNC Waterjet Cutter SBU
Class Number 398-31702

In this Safety and Basic Use (SBU) class, learn to safely operate the waterjet cutter, one of the most powerful tools at TechShop. Precisely cut almost any flat material with a very thin, high pressure stream of water and abrasive garnet. Work with everything from the thinnest sheet metal to 8 inches of granite, as well as wood, glass, tile, marble, and more. This extremely versatile, easy-to-program, and low-waste machine works without the risk of heat damage. The large bed accommodates full sheets of material. Class time is split between learning the FlowPath software and using the waterjet.

Note: When using the FlowJet, a consumables fee will be charged, only for cutting time, not setup time. The waterjet cuts quickly and cost estimate strategies will be covered.

Project: Gear-shaped bottle opener
