Safety and Basic Use

IMG_3938For your safety, the safety of those around you, the safety of the space and to make sure you are successful and have fun making things, most of the tools in the Robot Garden workshop require a safety and basic use or SBU class to use. We try to offer each class at least once a month so you don’t have to wait too long to get started. Please check our meetup page to see when the next classes are scheduled.

SBU registration is free for members (material fees still apply) and are at a nominal cost for non-members.

Introduction to the Robots

Learn to use Robot Garden’s 40W CO2 laser cutter / engraver. We will cover basic shop safety, but not general tool use (which is covered in a separate SBU), and the safety, operation, and emergency procedures that you will need to know in operating our FullSpectrum 20″x12″ 40W CO2 laser. After taking this course, you’ll be checked off to use the laser for your projects.

Learn to use Robot Garden’s Nomad 883 Pro which includes all of the hardware and software you need to take your 3D file and make a part.  After taking this course, you’ll be checked off to use the Nomad for your projects

Learn to use Robot Garden’s ProCNC 4848 4’x4′ router safely. Everyone will get to choose from a set of sample projects and learn to use the Mach3 software package to send the GCode to the CNC..  After taking this course, you’ll be checked off to use the CNCPro for your projects
