Getting Started with CNC: Personal Digital Fabrication with Shapeoko and Other Computer-Controlled Routers Make


Maker Media, Inc - This book covers the fundamentals of designing for--and working with--affordable $500-$3000 CNCs. Accessible 3d printing introduced the masses to computer-controlled additive fabrication. But the flip side of that is subtractive fabrication: instead of adding material to create a shape like a 3D printer does, a CNC starts with a solid piece of material and takes away from it.

Getting started with cnc is the definitive introduction to working with affordable desktop and benchtop CNCs, written by the creator of the popular open hardware CNC, the Shapeoko. Although inexpensive 3d printers can make great things with plastic, a CNC can carve highly durable pieces out of a block of aluminum, wood, and other materials.
