 +===== Training =====
 +
 +This tool requires training before use.
 +
 +If you're interested in learning to run the mill, look through the [[https://​training.ehlab.uk/​|training materials]]. Much of the syllabus is milling theory and CAD/CAM which you learn about with online research & tutorials.
 +
 +Come up with a simple project that you'd like to make, model it in Fusion360, and produce the CAM for it. Once you have something you think is ready to go, or if you have any questions aloong the way, contact [[people:​mikewalters]].

-===CNC Use Notes (incomplete)=== 
-[email protected] The CNC machine== 
-  * Open VR Milling v5 
-  * (If you are introducing a new tool) New tool-> Post Processor -> Number = The variable you have used at the post-processing stage of the Fusion 360. Enter a small description of the tool 
-  * Turn red switch to turn on the machine (It is below the desk) 
-  * (For wood) Use special vice.  
-    * Select vice rouch selection of clamping. ​ 
-    * Attach vice fasteners on bed and vice. The connecting material ideally should be parallel with the earth maybe slightly higher on the screw side 
-    * Then press vice grip of wood with the screws 
-  * Home - xyz -> Jog (to the the offset 
-    * Arrow keys allow you to move around the endmill position 
-    * Set override to 100% with knobs. 
-  * Down left -> Set offsets -> Tooling ?? -> Set tool 
-    * For one tool don’t set diameter etc. This is not the case if you have multiple endmills 
-    * Click change tool 
-    * Attach the holder to the machine: 
-      * Remove the cap 
-      * Unscrew screw 
-      * The fastener should go at the middle of the opening 
-      * Clean holder& slot before attaching it 
-  * Work offsets (Find ‘0’ point) 
-    * For low precision you need to start the spindle and jog it as soon as it is cutting 
-    * Control panel -> Job -> Set spindle speed -> Hit play 
-    * Tool & offset -> Set X or Y 
-    * Add half the diameter of the tool 
-    * Check the value @ the control panel 
-    * For z do the same 
-  * File -> Open -> Select the fnc file 
-  * Control - Auto
