The job should be pretty quick. I can start with just one 4x8 sheet’s worth of the disks, ranging from about 6-24in in diameter, and make more later when I’m certified. On the CNC I used at my university, this would take maybe 10-15 minutes. I was hoping the CAM would only take a few minutes as well for a simple 2-axis operation, but I’ve never used vcarve so maybe this is incorrect.
This is for an art project I’m looking to sell, so no, not non-profit.
I’ve used CAD before, but I don’t own it, which is why my plan was to use one of the computers at the Makerspace, which is an hour round-trip drive for me. So I’d prefer not to make the file ahead of time, but I could if it’s necessary or if my plan won’t work for some reason I’m not aware of.
Do you know what sort of timeline I’d be looking at for getting myself certified? Have the re-certifications for previously certified members been finished yet? I’d love to do this independently if that’s an option in a reasonable time frame.
Thanks for your time helping me understand this process.
