Speak to the [CNC Meister](https://wiki.sparkcc.org/People#cnc-meister) to arrange.__ * Machine Specific Pre-learning Links: * [Masso Tutorial Videos](https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCU1S9ofTFCochJOwrSqJLZw/videos) provide instruction as to how to use the controller. * Key videos to watch: * Graphical Interface * CNC Machine Tool Height Calibration * The Different Types of CNC Alarms * How to Set Up and Use Auto Tool Zero by Masso CNC Controller (probably not required unless you're using multiple cutting tools on a job) * CNC / CAM Pre-learning Links: * [tbc] * __General CAM setup [WIP]__ * Set reference point (zero point) to be bottom left edge of your work piece * General feed / speed for 6mm upcut bit is 1,000mm/sec, 12,000 rpm. Set so you're only removing 3mm of material at a time. This could be 3mm depth for slot cuts (full bit width cut) or 3mm width for edge cuts (full height of material). * __General checklist [WIP]__ * Ensure machine is clean and clear of obstacles * Power on machine * Estop check * Home machine * Check required tool is in spindle * Place work piece and anchor down * Set zero points (can maybe use touchoff plate for Z???) * Load job, start job * __Attend machine until job is complete, accidents can happen!__ ## Laser Cutter ### Thunder Laser Nova 51 #### Learning * __This machine requires an Induction before use.__ Speak to the [CNC Meister](https://wiki.sparkcc.org/People#cnc-meister) to arrange. * Pre-learning Links: * [Laser Cutting Beginners Guide](https://makerdesignlab.com/tutorials-tips/laser-cutting-beginners-guide/) gives a general overview of laser cutting. * [Laser Cutter Materials](http://atxhackerspace.org/wiki/Laser_Cutter_Materials) at ATX Hackerspace provides an exhaustive list of materials (be mindful that they have a different cutter to us). #### Checklist [WIP] * Engage water chiller: * Check water level via gauge on back of chiller * Top up with __distilled water only__ if required * Turn on water chiller * Turn on machine (top switch) * Turn on laser (bottom switch) * Check cutting bed is clear of debris * Check material: * Ensure material is clean and flat (at least in the job area) * Ensure your material is safe; [Never Cut These Materials](http://atxhackerspace.org/wiki/Laser_Cutter_Materials#NEVER_CUT_THESE_MATERIALS) * Focus laser: * Loosen laser head lock nut, raise laser head, tighten laser head nozzle nut. *This ensures the laser head does not collide with the material*. * Place material so at least part is in the path of the focus sensors (small black sensors left and right of cutting bed) * In *Lightburn* click `Focus`and the laser bed will self-focus * Place the spacer tool on top of your material and lower the laser head so that it *just* touches. This should leave a gap of 6mm. * Move material to desired job location * Double check your job laser intensity and speeds are correct for desired operation (cutting, etching, marking) * Check for debris on laser bed * Close lid * Start job * __Attend machine until job is complete, fires can happen!__ ## Vinyl Cutter # Tools ## Power Tools ## Hand Tools # Screens ## Mobile Presentation # Computers ## CAD Workstation ## Learning Workstations # Nommables ## Fridge ## Coffee Machine ## Snack Machine ## Drink Machine
