Our main goal is to make desktop manufacturing easier. CNC, 3D printers and LASER cutters are awesome tools but using them can be both expensive and challenging. Fortunately, many companies are beginning to produce relatively inexpensive machines but the software and controllers that run them are either very costly and difficult to use or poor quality and lacking features. We believe desktop manufacturing is for everyone.
