In session 1, we learned how to work a Z-Mill. We learned the different parts and what all of the buttons do. We also learned how to use raw materials. We also learned the different stages of manufacturing.
We learned how to measure the Z-Mill correctly. We manually milled a square with the Z-Mill.
We manually milled a diagonal line and a circle on to the square. We used the Z-Mill.
In this session we learned how to use the Cartesian coordinate system. We learned how this is used with the Z-Mill. That it is used to find the home position if the cutter.
Session 5 & 6
In these sessions, we milled on the Z-Mill with the computer. In session 5, we milled our names. In session 6, we milled a picture.
In session 7, we used the computer to mill on the Z-Mill. We picked a design and wrote text to be carved into the material.
