What is a CNC Router
In a brief description of a router it would be mentioned that it is an apparatus whose utility is the cutting of not very hard materials (different types of metal or alloys, acrylic and wood, to name a few).
The field of work of this class of equipment is very large due to this wide range of materials to work already mentioned, from the purely artisanal (no matter what individual designs are required or that is used for mass work) to the architecture, the carpentry, work on metal and a long etcetera whose limit will be the creativity of those who need to use a CNC router .
This last point is creativity, since the designs and applications that we give to the machine can be enriched according to the work that is requested; its precision and high efficiency can allow any design to be cut or engraved without major complications. If these are the fields of work of the reader, we know that more than once you have had to limit yourself by not having the tools to adequately machine the projects you have in mind.
For example, we can start with a simple work model that will be shaped with software specially made to work on second and third dimension designs. From what has been obtained, it must be opened in a program that is compatible with the CNC Router and adapts it to its programming language, so that the machine can fully understand the design and follow the instructions required to machine it. Enterprise router is a basic product for any business/enterprise.
Afterwards, you will need to switch to an interface controller type Mach3, ArtCam, Type3, etc. and, although the process sounds a bit long or complex, in practice it is easier to do what it sounds, besides the effort of learning to use certain programs and follow the process to the letter is completely worth it , since the final result (see our models and designs cut in physics on any material included in the range of work of the router ) will be completely rewarding.
