Your CNC Machine

Abstract

Chances are if you’ve picked up this book (or purchased a copy), then you’re probably somewhat familiar with the term CNC. But maybe not. CNC is an abbreviation for computer numerical control. A CNC machine, then, is a machine that carves out objects in three dimensions from a solid block of material. CNC machines are commonly used in industry to produce small parts such as bicycle stems and tools. Low-cost CNC machines are increasingly used by serious hobbyists, especially woodworkers, to carve creations out of materials such as wood and aluminum.
