CNC Machining Comes to St. Joe

Mr. John Gundy, our new Physics and Engineering teacher, and JoeBotics coach, has been working with our newly purchased CNC machine. Among his first prototypes, he created 3-D images of our St. Joe Logo by carving them out of a foam core board which had been painted green. CNC machines are in operation in various manufacturing facilities, as they can be used to create objects in plastics, metals, wood, and even stone. CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control. The machine uses computer programs to control the movement of a cutting tool to carve out sections of a solid object. The operator will use a CAD program to create the 3-D pathway for the machine to carve. CAD stands for Computer Assisted Design. We are fortunate that Mr. Gundy has experience in using the machine. He will be teaching the skill to his JoeBotics team members and engineering students. We are also thankful to our generous donors for providing this machine for use in our newly renovated Digital Innovation Space.
St. Joseph’s Academy is a college preparatory high school sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. Our mission at the Academy is to provide quality Catholic education for young women in an environment that challenges them to grow in faith, knowledge, and respect for self and others. Our community expects these young women to make a profound impact in the world.
