We have recently started using our Mini CNC machine…. the video of the guitar being carved really shows how easy new CNC‘s are to use! Click on the link to go to Rockler and see more of them. There are a lot of models and sizes to choose from, all really inexpensive.
We are going to use our mini CNC to carve signs, furniture parts, guitars, cabinet doors and pretty much anything we can think of. We purchased some extra software, PhotoVcarve, which outputs any digital photographs you take into CNC wood carvings. We also purchased a “Touch Probe” and “Cut 3D” software to run the probe. Inserted into the router, this device feels and traces any object you place on the bed of your machine, converting it into a file which allows your CNC machine to carve an exact duplicate of whatever you copied! Check out the video below to see a basic tutorial on the Shark CNC Probe and what it does …..
