CNC Router Table

YMS has a wonderful tool called a ShopBot! It is a 4 X 8 computer controlled router table that you can make all kinds of wonderful things with. There is however a steep learning curve and the machine is expensive to operate and maintain.  Users are required to take a certification class, or work with a certified member to use this tool.

Our shop-bot uses v-carve pro for design and to set up files to get them ready to cut. You can review software with their handy tutorials. Our YMS CAD computer has a licensed copy for membership to use.
