CNC Projects: Free, Classroom-Friendly Archive to Fuel Student Imaginations

Experiential education started to emerge in the 1980s, but it seems like technical education teachers knew this long before all the research was published. Keeping content fresh and finding projects students are interested in is a hurdle that seems to get consistently harder to overcome. Tormach just released its project library to help you do just that. tormach project library

This online database is already loaded with projects, and each includes step-by-step directions, a materials list, CAM files, CAD files, and g-code compatible with Tormach machines. This means all the leg work of creating a CAD model, perfecting tool paths in CAM, and figuring out what tooling is best for each project has already been done for you – all you need to do is review the files, load the machine with tools, make sure work and tool offsets are measured properly, and press 'Cycle Start’! The Projects Library is constantly growing, with fresh projects and new ideas that are submitted from Tormach staff, customers, and our Brand Ambassadors. If you have ideas you’d like to see turned into projects, reach out to us at, so we can turn your ideas into tangible projects with the help of our engineering and technical team members. If you create one of our projects, be sure to share and tag us in social media! Let’s make some chips!
