CNC Mini Routers are all the rage these days. Whether you’re talking about inexpensive kits like the Shapeoko or finished ready-to-go-to-work units like the Nomad, there are a bunch of choices available to makers and CNC enthusiasts looking for a good way to start out with CNC. I got to see and hold the new Shapeoko 3 when Edward and Robert were recently in the SF Bay Area for the Maker Faire, and I can tell you it is very solid and well built for a machine in its price range. You could definitely do some very fun things on a machine like this, and they’ve promised to hook me up with a Shapeoko 3 kit, so I’ll be writing about it when I get the chance.
