CNC

A computer numerical control (CNC) router is a computer-controlled cutting machine related to the hand-held router used for cutting various hard materials, such as wood, composites, aluminium, steel, plastics, glass, and foams. CNC routers can perform the tasks of many carpentry shop machines such as the panel saw, the spindle moulder, and the boring machine. They can also cut mortises and tenons. A CNC router is very similar in concept to a CNC milling machine. Instead of routing by hand, tool paths are controlled via computer numerical control. The CNC router is one of many kinds of tools that have CNC variants. A CNC router typically produces consistent and high-quality work and improves factory productivity. Unlike a jig router, the CNC router can produce a one-off as effectively as repeated identical production. Automation and precision are the key benefits of CNC router tables.

Bigtime Basement Build CNC for Laser and Wood Projects

“For this CNC build, I went after a laser, wood, and aluminum cutter/carver. Comparable units from reputable manufactures are over $2000. This one came in under $800. While I was at it, I made an Arduino Shield to simplify …

CNC Pen Lift

“This instructable explains how to make a CNC pen-lift from an SG90 servo, two 4mm x 100mm nails, the spring from a ball-point pen, and a 3D printer. The design accommodates pen diameters up to 14mm. There is no pen-wobble …
