Making a Domino on a CNC Mill - PBL Project

Make a Domino on a CNC Mill. This project introduces the safe setup and operation of a CNC Mill, with opportunities to program a custom domino. Lessons: 1. How does the CNC Mill work? Make a Domino, using a CNC Mill. In this lesson, the students will explore how a CNC Mill works. In associated lessons, the students will setup and operate a CNC Mill to make a Domino. This is often used as the first project to learn how use a CNC Mill. 2. Demonstrating the Domino Using students at random, the teacher walks them through a demonstration of how to setup and use of a CNC Mill to make a domino. Students will be taking notes on the procedure sheet... I have them do this on their phones, and have them attach videos and photos to the procedure sheet. 3. Running the Domino (first article) Independent practice making a domino, using a CNC Mill. This is the third part of the four part series in making a domino. Students have previously learned about CNC Safety, operation and have had a demo on how to use the equipment to make a domino. Now they get to make one! 4. Customizing the Domino In this final lesson, the students will build upon what they have learned by running the domino on a CNC Mill, and get to customize it to the numbers they want and their name on the back. It makes a great father's or mother's day gift, too! This unit is brought to you by Dan Frank (CTE) with support from the CTE Online curriculum leadership team.
