CNC Milling in the Workshop by Marcus Bowman – Book from Chronos

CNC Milling in the Workshop Hardback  (Ref: CRO10)

CNC Milling in the Workshop Hardback A practical approach to using the CNC mill, aimed at everyone with a workshop, particularly modelmakers and horologists. CNC (computer numerical control) milling machines are now available to even the smallest of workshops, allowing designers to be more ambitious and machinists to be more confident of the production of parts, greatly increasing the potential of milling at home. This accessible guide takes a practical approach to software and techniques, and explains how you can make full use of your CNC mill to produce ambitious works of a high standard. It offers authoritative advice on programming and operating a CNC mill and a guide to the major CAD/CAM/CNC software such as Mach3, LuxCNC, and Vectric packages, without being restricted to any particular make of machine; as well as practical projects and examples of a wide range of finished work.Marcus Bowman has been machining metal for forty years, and programming since 1970. A lifelong maker of models, clocks and tools, he enjoys the synthesis of machining technique and programming involved in applying CNC in the workshop, and uses CAD, CAM andCNC software to extend the boundaries of what can be achieved in his workshop.
