Project Description

For our project, we used the CNC machine to make chess pieces.


Content: The top 3 things I learned from this showcase were:

  • How to code on a CNC lathe and be able to create products with it
  • How to set up a CNC lathe and prepare to make products
  • How to prepare the stock before the operation

Culture: This project relates or connects to my family, background, peers, community or my own personal interests in these ways:

We both have family in the engineering industry and it peaked our interest in engineering as well.

Metacognition: In reflection, one thing that I would have done differently during my journey with this showcase is:

One thing that we would have done differently is doing more research ahead of time so we can be prepared for the work ahead.

Social/Emotional: One thing I am most proud of by completing this showcase is:

The final product and looking back at everything that we have achieved to create these products. All of the things we learned helps us out so when we get jobs, we already have knowledge of what to do.
