Modern CNC machine tools use tool path data generated automatically from a CAM software package. This allows for highly complex parts to be machined without the extensive manual programming used in times gone past. Now, 3D models that have been designed in modelling software, as well as 2 dimensional cad drawings, can be used to generate the CNC data for use directly at the CNC machine. However, not all CNC machines have the same capabilities. What is Prismatic Machining, and what type of CNC machine do you require for it?
