CNC milling and milling are two very similar processes that can create identical products, but they each have their own strengths and weaknesses depending on the task at hand. For example, in many cases CNC milling can save time and money over traditional milling. While some tasks may suit better for the craftsmanship of manual milling tools. But what exactly do these two processes entail? And how can you tell them apart? Let’s take a look at some of the most notable differences between the two!

If you need to get your project made, you’re going to have to work with a manufacturer or make it yourself. Working with a manufacturer can be tricky, though, because they often produce thousands of parts per day, which means it can take them days or even weeks to fill out a RFQ.
What exactly is CNC milling? It’s the process of turning your ideas into products by using computer-aided design (CAD) software to create, edit, and prepare your artwork before sending it off to a CNC mill machine. These machines are capable of cutting all kinds of materials, including plastics, wood, metal, glass, and even ceramic. Learn more about what this kind of technology can do in the article below!
