There is virtually no limit to what a CNC machine can do! CNC machines are responsible for almost all modern day machining operations in manufacturing industries. They normally cost from tens of thousands of dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Our machines can be used to engrave plaques and manufacture custom wood, metal and plastic components. All it requires is a willingness to learn and understand how each machine can accomplish a specific task.
WHAT IS THE PREFERRED 3D CAD FILE FORMAT FOR CNC MACHINING?
CAN WE SUPPLY OUR OWN MATERIAL FOR MACHINING?
Yes, we are able to use third party materials but also source our own high quality materials and provide them to you at cost.
