This video for the Shopbot PRSAlpha 96-48, a large-format three-axis CNC machine capable of carving full sheets of plywood, MDF, non-composite plastics, and almost anything softer than aluminum, will serve as a potion of our hands-on training module, and also as a persistent resource as you learn to use the machine. In it we also cover remote access of the Shopbot, and detail the process by which Jacobs Project Support users can submit parts for remote fabrication.



The Bantam Tools Desktop PCB Milling Machine, formerly known as the Othermill, is the perfect tool for small parts, molds, and custom PCBs. This video replaces the Jacobs Makerspace’s hands-on training for this machine, and includes all the information you’ll need to get to work on it (after taking the online quiz, of course!).
