Say hello to our very own Shapeoko CNC Machine. We’re the brains and the creativity behind the pieces we make, and little ‘Shapey’ here is the muscle. It seamlessly carves the designs we make for our customers!
We take pride in the knowledge we’ve gained in order to run the machine and keep it functional and we’re excited to share some of that with you:
In order to operate the machine we need exact measurements, tool paths, a leveled carving surface, proper router bits (which need changing for each tool path type), a flawless design, a zeroed X axis, Y axis and Z axis, and proper tool settings (like pass depth, spindle speed, and plunge rate).
It's crazy that so much technicality is involved in making a single piece of carved, wooden art, and it amazes us every time we make something!
