Well my kids and I are building a variety of projects using the shopbot.
I am building some wall signs using the mill to honor all our past State Champions we have had in SkillsUSA. Here is what I have done right now I will post a picture when I am done... I engraved the logo and lettering then used a sharie to color it in... worked great! My plan is to build one for Technical Drafting, Architectural Drafting , and Cabinetmaking.
I also have one student who is evolving (He was a State Champion Technical Drafter as a 10th Grader). He is playing around with a prototype for a Planetary Gear Box Housing. As You Can See It is a Little more advanced than most items... He doing the tool paths for this on Mastercam.
I also had a number of student who were ahead do a pocket activity in my Intro to CAD course they thought it was pretty neat that they could take what they drew and then use that geometry to build something !
One spur-of- the- moment thing that I did last Friday after I found out that they were having a benefit for my neighbor who was injured in an ambulance call-he is a volunteer fire fighter. Is that I made a Iowa Hawkeye wall sign they auctioned off for over $150… I thought that was pretty good since they got beat the past two weeks in a row… the Hawkeye symbol price has declined in the past two weeks that is for sure. I didn’t take a picture but It looked great!
