Make it Better: Building Guitars with CNC Machines Webinar
September 23 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
From Making to Selling: A NextFab Made Online Series for the Makers and Artisans of Philadelphia and Beyond.
In this pathway of webinars, we’re excited to showcase our technical experts, who have helped hundreds of makers, small businesses, and creatives make it better. Through step-by-step instructions, our experts will show viewers how they got through a specific process to streamline parts of their business.
In this Make it Better webinar, Master Luthier Ryan Hyde will walk us through how he streamlined his guitar-making business utilizing the CNC machines at NextFab. Taking his traditional guitar-making process, he realized in order to create a profitable and fine-tuned product (and focus on the parts of the making process he most enjoyed) he could use the ShopBot to help.
In this webinar, Ryan will cover:
- How he streamlined pieces of his guitar-making process
- How he creates a CAD drawing and then translates it to a CNC machine (and why you’ll always need traditional woodworking skills alongside your machining skills)
- How he created a process that combines the handmade with the machining and how to think like a CNC
By the end of this webinar, you should have the tools and beginning knowledge of how to think through how to create your own project utilizing CNC tools combined with traditional tools.
