At the Norfolk Mini Maker Faire ShopBot is bringing the awesome! They are bringing some of their beautiful CNC machines. For those unfamiliar with CNC machines, in the case of the ShopBot a router tool is driven on 3 axis under computer control to cut the designs set on the computer. They come in multiple sizes, are absolutely beautiful and the company is located in the Raleigh-Durham area a few minutes away!
Here is a good video showing a shopbot being used to produce custom guitars, and the playlist will carry into STEM use and other people creating things with ShopBots! It’s even more fun watching the CNC routers in person so come check out ShopBot at the Norfolk Mini Maker Faire on Oct 20th!
