C O M How to Prepare for the Arrival of Your New CNC Router A ny time a shop purchases a new piece of equipment, there are a lot of factors that must be considered: how does it work? What software is needed? What's the learning curve? Where will it go? And that's just the beginning. Shops also must train all employees who will use the equipment as well as get projects lined up and do some test runs. But before that can happen, and before the equip- ment is even purchased, there is a whole other set of considerations that must be dealt with, especial- ly in the case of a CNC router. There are many fac- tors that must be examined with this equipment: size/where the machine will go (yes, there are desk- top CNC routers), what software is required, cost, CNC routers can do some amazing things once you un- derstand everything that's in- volved. Sometimes the hardest step is the first one. (Image courtesy ShopBot Tools) B Y C A S S I E G R E E N S I G N A G E & P R I N T I N G
