How CNC machinery helps sign makers Without computer numerical control, the sign maker’s job can be a lengthy one. For some people of a certain age, the perception of sign makers (or sign writers) is that of a gentlemen crafting ornate signs in a little shed or workshop. Come the 1980s, CNC machinery became a...

How CNC routers are being used to raise funds for Western Australia Scouts CNC routers offer a world of possibilities for industrial purposes and hobbyists. As computer technology and miniaturisation has progressed, computer numerical control systems have become a ‘must have’ item in the home workshop. As well as creating turned parts, there is one...

Did you know that the Raspberry PI could be used in a CNC milling machine? The Raspberry PI, since its introduction in 2012, has become an unlikely British success story. With over 10 million PIs sold, it has taken over from the Sinclair ZX Spectrum family as the biggest selling computer system of British origin.... Read More
A look at how CNC machines have been used for the lighter things in life Have you got the Friday feeling just yet? Or are you looking forward to your next holiday? If you’re ready to shoot off to the pub or the airport, the last thing you would want to read is another boring... Read More
Why IKEA’s SPACE10 lab is using digital CNC milling to reawaken old handicrafts If you’re familiar with the Swedish self-assembly giant’s offerings, you would know there’s more to IKEA than Billy bookcases and Asplund wardrobes. There’s the hot dog stand by the tills; also the Swedish meatballs in the café, the children’s section, and the... Read More
A selection of CNC related video clips In the last few weeks, we have written about how CNC machines work, and some of the items they can produce. On some occasions, words aren’t enough to do justice. The average CNC machine is best seen in action, so we’ve opted for 50 frames per second instead.
A peek at CNC routing machines for home workshops If you are more used to working with computers, you have the option of taking your work home if you fall behind. With cloud hosting access, it is possible to type a report away from your office. With CNC routing machines you don’t have the same... Read More
Thanks to 3D printing algorithms and CNC routers, it is possible to replicate the world’s highest peaks Sometimes, the weather may be too warm or inclement for scaling the north face of Knockboy. In these cases, wannabe Chris Bonningtons turn to indoor climbing walls. In most cases, they do not replicate any of the world’s... Read More
Where PCB assembly meets CNC machining Most electronics hobbyists create prototype projects on Veroboard, which is a perforated board. This is a popular option if you lack access to etching equipment, as used in PCB assembly. In the old days, you sketched a circuit board, created a transparent transfer, then used a UV box to...
