Generate Tool Paths

Download both the files. I generated the tool paths in Makercam. The instructions are in the video below. You can also use other CAM programs to generate your tool paths.


Cut and Secure Material

My Shapeoko set up uses the “hold down table” project. You can also screw the material into the waste board with wood screws.


Home the spindle

Jog or manually bring the spindle to the appropriate origin point. The file is set up with the origin in the lower left corner of your material.


Run the Gcode

I used Universal G code sender. There are several free g code programs recommended at Once your Shapeoko is connected, zero your axis and upload the file. your file should be ready to run!



I used an 1/8 in chisel and rubber mallet, to knock the tabs off of my piece. Then I lightly sanded the edges with 220 sand paper.
