Shopbot CNC

Cut, carve, and shape with precision on our ShopBot 4'x8' CNC router.


How to use the CNC

The ShopBot is a bit different than other tools in the shop in that we don't offer regular group orientations.
Instead, qualified staff work directly with members on their projects from prepping cut files to running jobs.

  • Must be a current Unlimited Member to use the CNC.

  • Projects must be approved by staff prior to scheduling time.

  • Staff must review and approve cut file prior to running the job.

  • Staff support for artwork prep and/or generating cut files will be charged at $85/hr.*

  • CNC training costs $85 in addition to active Monthly Unlimited membership.

  • Runtime charged at $.50/min.

  • CraterWorks has basic CNC end mills.** Specialty bits must be provided by member.***

  • CraterWorks is not responsible for failed jobs.

  • Member provides all materials (subject to approval).

* D6 teachers working on qualified school projects are not subject to charges.

** We typically have 1/4" flat end mills (up/down cut) and 1/4" ball nose available.

*** 1/4" shanks. HSS or carbide.
