Whether you are building a Makerspace of Fab Lab, you have undoubtedly considered a CNC Router. CNC technology is a key component of fabrication, but the technology is as diverse as the applications. CNC equipment is designed to route, carve, drill, and engrave in wood, plastic, foam, aluminum and other materials for a wide range of applications.
CNC routers, plasma cutters and laser equipment make it easy and exciting for educators to prepare students for the technical manufacturing jobs of tomorrow. Students understand modern manufacturing challenges, turning design concepts into reality on industry standard equipment.
Choosing a CNC Router
When choosing a CNC Router, consider the following components:

I am a middle school teacher who teaches robotics, coding, and 3D modeling and design. I am moving out of a classroom and into an old wood shop. I was asked what new tools or machines I would possibly need in the next couple of years. I was told by our high school engineering teachers to ask for the stars and hopefully get the moon. They talked about getting a laser cutter and a CNC router if that was an option. I have been looking online and trying to get ideas about what would be appropriate for a middle school setting. Particularly 7th and 8th grade.

You made a good point when you shared that it is great to get a CNC machine that has good compatibility with available CAD/CAM Software. This will ensure that educators can make the learning process easier for the students. I would like to think if someone is planning to teach on how to use CNC machine, he should consider getting the right machine from a reliable supplier.

Thank you for your information. It's very useful.
It really helped when you said that CNC machining will make the process easier and more exciting as well when it comes to technical manufacturing jobs. I guess looking for a supplier to provide you with this kind of equipment is a worth it investment for your courses or even for your business needs. And I think the machine has to be the right type and setting depending on where you will use it for, so the owner has to communicate with the manufacturer well.
