Make Article: CNC Machining vs 3D Printing
Tom Owad wrote another article on the merits of CNC machine and 3D Printing
where he mentions us under the DIY CNC portion of the article.
Tom gives a good overview of CNC machines and 3D printers and their techniques of adding or subtracting material to produce the final object. He discusses the pros and cons of each type of system, i.e. dangers, waste, portability, and softwre complexity. He also describes the necessity in terms of the type of fabrication where CNC will allow for superior results in the finish and the materials can be less expensive.
