Computer Controlled Machining
Before starting the Fab Academy I had little to no knowledge about CNC routers. As a matter of fact I had just discovered about their existence a few months prior the start of the Fab Academy, so it goes without saying I had never laid a finger on one.

The assignments for the first week were:

Highlighted necessary tools:
>> Shopbot CNC Router
As a prelude to thank all the other memebers of the Fab Academy @ DeWaag for their patitience and for giving up some of their time to compensate for my inability to use the machine. I was pretty terrified by this machine at first, so much so I gave up on using the machine on Friday on my assigned slot.
