A CNC router is a computer controlled machine that is capable of cutting a variety of materials. It is conceptually similar to the hand-held router. The CNC router machine translates CAD models into ‘G-Code’. This code supplies instructive coordinates to the machine. The router moves across a gantry in the Y-axes and plunges in the Z-axis. The entire gantry moves in the X-axis.
