The machine shop is outfitted with a state of the art Haas CNC machine (SR100) as well as a full accouterment of auxiliary tools: grinders, saws, vices, drills, etc. We have a large assortment of tooling available for member use: end mills, drill bits, etc as well as scrap material for practice.
The shop is also set up with many CNC workstations available to all members. Members have access to the full Autodesk Product Design suite as well as MasterCAM. Designs can be done in the shop from scratch, or can be imported from existing DXF, STEP, or other CAD files.
No prior experience is required in the machine shop. The speed at which things can be done does depend on skill level and experience: we ask those who are trying something new to exercise patience, ask questions as they go and be open to learning new things.
