At ShopBot, we believe that training is valuable for getting the most from your CNC. Whether you’re brand new to CNC or an experienced user, we have a wide range of training opportunities to keep you designing and making for years to come. Our training classes are available for ShopBot tool owners/operators, anyone interested in CNC, as well as owners and operators of virtually any brand of CNC. Check out the events calendar for current offerings.
Our 2-day Basic Training is held at our Durham, NC headquarters. This group training takes students from an introduction about how ShopBots work to hands-on design and machining.
Online training is interactive through visual and audio demonstrations and they are subject-specific. Topics are often derived from customer suggestions. These FREE trainings run approximately 2 hours in length.
Join us for a 2-day Cabinetmaking Workshop where you’ll learn the basics of automated cabinetmaking using the CNC, along with tips and techniques that will bring efficiency and cost savings to your shop.
This 2.5-day workshop begins with design and machining using ShopBot tools, then moves into cross-platform training involving other digital fabrication tools (i.e. laser cutters and 3D printers). There is also time specifically allotted for independent work and collaborative development.
Our Tutorial and Video library allows you to learn at your own pace, on your own timeline. You’ll find topics ranging from tool set-up and maintenance, to information on design software, to tips on material cutting. Check back for new content, we regularly add to our online resources.
Have one of our trainers come to your school or shop for training tailored to your specific needs. Available as an add-on to a tool purchase including an install/assembly visit, or it can be purchased separately for an individual or small group. Contact us for more details.
