Students and faculty members who wish to use the router need to attend an orientation specific to the CNC Router to familiarize themselves with the capabilities of the router and the policies of the studio.

Following the completion of an orientation, users are set up with an account that allows them to schedule an appointment.

Users will be able to reserve a "file prep" appointment which will pair the user with a CNC staff member to set up their files. Once the "file prep" has been completed, RPStudio staff will book the user for a "cut" appointment.

About the CNC Router

The CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled) Router is a 3 axis tool ] capable of cutting and carving materials up to 3 x 48 x 96 inches in size.

The CNC Router can accept files designed in a variety of 2D and 3D modeling platforms. The primary CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) software that we use to drive the machine is RhinoCam.
