Pocket NC V2-10 5 Axis Desktop CNC Milling Machine. Milling Machine: Today, most people are familiar with the concept of 3D printing which is an additive manufacturing process. The part is built up from the base by adding a layer of material at a time. Milling is a subtractive process where material is removed from a solid piece of stock using a sharp tool to reveal the part inside.
CNC: CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control. This means that the machine is controlled by a series of codes and numbers output by a computer. These codes can either be output by software, or written line-by-line in a text file.For more information on the software you need, keep reading. 5 Axis: If you are having a hard time visualizing what "5 axis" could mean, dont worry. Its a lot more simple than it sounds.
Conventional milling machines typically can move in 3 linear axes at a time. An example of this would be a milling machine where the part fixed to the table can move back and forth in two directions (X and Y axes) and the cutting tool can move up and down (Z axis). The extra 2 axes of movement are rotational, which for the Pocket NC means that the part can also rotate about the X axis (A axis) and about the Y axis (B axis). The main advantage of this is that you can now machine on multiple faces of the part without having to refixture it.
What materials can you cut? You can cut materials with hardnesses up to that of aluminum. This includes wax, wood, and plastics.
Example parts cut on a Pocket NC. One extended reach tool holder.

The typical process flow for creating a part using the Pocket NC would be to draw your part using CAD (Computer Aided Design) software, generate the toolpath using CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) software, and then interface with the machine to send over and monitor the toolpath.The item "Pocket NC V2-10 5 Axis Desktop CNC Milling Machine" is in sale since Monday, January 27, 2020.
