New to Eureka Jr/Sr High School

February 17, 2016

New to Eureka Jr/Sr High School

***Axiom AutoRoute 6 Pro CNC***

Is Now Running!!!

Thanks to the Grant of $1,500 and the extra help from the school board the new machine is up and running.  Last Friday the new CNC AXIOM 6 Pro made its home in a newly constructed room (made by the woodworking/carpentry students) for the Eureka Skills USA Chapter.  The purpose of this machine is to lesson the costs of wooden plaques for competitions and awards, be used for teacher door signs and eventually the new chapter would like to design and sell items to the public. 

I worked really hard this weekend learning how to make text, pull clipart in, convert the drawing to vectors, create toolpaths and then take all of that and upload it to the CNC machine.  It was very time consuming but, well worth it.  I do believe it will not be long and the Eureka Skills USA Chapter will be producing their own work for sale.  All Proceeds are going to go towards the added expenses of this machine.  Once all expenses are paid for the profit will then help Eureka Skills USA members in further competitions like CNC programming and Cabinetmaking. We are very fortunate to have this purchase and we would like to thank everyone so much for the support and we are looking forward to producing new items.

The CNC machine in action.
