Hello-

First, I apologize if this is in the wrong area. I'm looking to purchase a desktop CNC machine and was wondering if the experts here had any recommendations. I want something that's easy to use, since I'm unfamiliar with CNC tech as it stands now. I do some design work in 3ds max and Inventor, and would like the ability to just hit print. I'm hoping to find something that will work with wood and acrylic, and maybe aluminum (when used slowly). I've looked at the Roland iModela which looks cool, but has a tiny work area. Any ideas or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Pay particular attention to the "CNCZone" site post - and to the Shapeoko (http://www.shapeoko.com/)...
I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.
