The term ‘CNC’ gets bandied about a lot around here, so just as a refresher, CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control. CNC machines use automation to precisely make complex parts in metal and other materials. So, um, do you want one?

The Nomad 883 looks to be one of the most compact and user-friendly ways of cutting, engraving, and carving without sneaking into your old shop class at night. Work your magic on wood, brass, aluminum, plastic, you name it. Of course this kinda stuff can get tricky, so it helps that the details like feed rates, speeds, depths of cut, etc. are handled automatically to reduce the learning curve. Just plug the USB cable into your Mac or Windows machine and you’re ready to create. After being in development for 16 years, the Nomad 883 can now be had on Kickstarter for as little as $1,500.
