With The Nomad 883 we've taken the guesswork out of operating a CNC machine. Everything you'll need to get started is included - software (for Mac and PC), cutters, cables, even a starter pack of material. You'll be cutting parts out on day one.
The Nomad 883 is fully enclosed to control the mess and limit the noise. You can get a Bamboo enclosure for a home or studio, or a durable HDPE enclosure for the shop or garage.
We've been in product development for 16 years and have used all of the big digital fabrication technologies - 3D printers, CNC mills, and laser cutters (we own one of each). We know what they're capable of and what the pitfalls are. Of the bunch, the CNC mill is the most versatile machine but it comes with a big list of flaws: it's complicated, loud, messy, slow, and intimidating.
In spite of the drawbacks, we always turned to our CNC mill when we needed a perfect prototype.
