    Hi,
    I'm new to the CNC router world. No previous experience at all, not even with software. I'm looking to buy a CNC router by January and I wanted advice on my purchase. It will be for a hobby/possible small business. Interested in making signs, small furniture, home decor etc. My budget is going to be around $4,000. I prefer a larger bed size maybe 4x4, and prefer easy as possible software as I am just starting out. Thanks in advance

    Hi all. New member/old guy here. Looking to start a small business from my home as I'll be 60 soon and my retirement plan basically consists of dropping dead at my current job. I just received my Carbide3D Nomad which is sitting in a box on the living room floor. We are converting the guest room into a small work/office this week and the Nomad is my first machine. Since it is in my living quarters, which I rent and also has to double as an occasional guest room I opted for the Nomad to test the waters. It has a small footprint, seems reasonably quiet and is enclosed. Let's see how it goes.

    I joined the forums here to learn what I could and maybe try out some of the test files I see people have posted.

    All the best,

    Burt

    Hey there. I am a hobbyist machine engineer looking for additional information, useful threads, some questions to be advised, some things to build/repair/maintain/design.
    Just a little extra curious about cnc machining with all details, components and ideas in general.

    Looking forward,

    New to CNC forum and planning to make a cnc router/milling for acrylic cutting. There are tons of information in the Internet. Really confused on where to start...

    And yes, I want to build a platform for 4 foot x 3 foot area. Cutting area would be approximately 45" x 33". I currently get all my acrylic works cut in laser from a laser cutting shop. Wanted to build a cnc router/milling so that I can do at my own wish and time.

    Hi!!!! I found this website looking for DIY plasma tables. Glad I did. This is a hobby for me that I do in my garage on my off days from work. I've built an entire garage gym for myself and son in college. I just like building "stuff" as my wife says. I want a Plasma cutter and I want to build my own table for it, just doing a ton of reading and researching. Just not sure when I will start it, Im suppose to go to Saudi Arabia next year to work, so if that happens It will be put on the back burner for at least 2 years. But I will still read as much as possible and buy what I need little by little.

    Thanks

    Hi Folks,

    he1957 is the ID. Been lurking around for a number of years but have been dormant for a long time. Recently semi-retired and am looking to use my new 1200x2400x250mm table to make stuff for a hobby income. Always found this forum extremely useful in the past when I converted a Sieg Super X3 to CNC but never had much time to use it because my ex Job kept getting in the way. Now for some serious fun!

    Cheers,

    HarryE.

    Hi all. New member, although not entirely new to the world of CNC machining - I ran a CAD/CAM facility for a university for a few years, and have now moved into the private sector, working for a company as one fo their CNC engineers. I'm also a keen hobbyist, and have a machine collection that I'm rightly smug about - two 3D printers (a Delta-style FDM and a DLP), a 75-*500mm 60W laser cutter, a 3020CNC router, a vinyl cutter, and a lathe and mill that I've just bought the electronics to perform a full CNC conversion on. Expect to see me asking many questions about controller setups and answering anything that I can about what I do know.

    I'd like to say WELCOME to all the new members, and to the old members that haven't posted.

    I'd also like to extend an offer for you all to chime in and say hullo, mayhaps tell us what you do, how you're involved in CNC etc. We'd love to hear from you!!
