    To discuss CNC, 3d printing and more. Since there wasn't one, I made one!

    I love it.
    Should the title be "Rapid prototyping Thread", or "CNC & 3D printing Thread" instead?

    You forget that 3D printing IS CNC, as is are most other types of automated additive and subtractive manufacturing techniques.
    If The Mods think it appropriate to change it, they can!

    You’re correct in that both processses requires numeric control.
    I just always think of CNC as subtractive, while 3D print is additive.
    Regardless, I learn a lot from the discussions about prototyping in this forum :)
