Materials (what to use, and not use, it on):
- Broad range of materials that may be worked (See materials and feed rates link below for details):
- Wood (successfully milled)
- Some Stones
General and Special Safety Considerations:
This is not an exhaustive list!
- Always wear safety glasses.
- Read, understand and follow all warning labels, instructions and safety manuals.
- Take the class.
- Use Easel (http://www.easel.com/) to design simple cuts, generate gcode, and control the ShapeOko.
- Other software may be better for complex designs.
Tips and Tricks:
- Wood or plastic panels can be positioned to prevent waste material from being thrown. This includes shielding the controlling laptop.
