Nomad CNC Mill Turns Desktops into Workshops

A company called Carbide3D claims it has developed a CNC mill that’s as compact and user-friendly as the latest consumer-grade 3D printers. The company’s Nomad 883 will be sold fully assembled and connects to computers via USB. It will come with the necessary software, cables, cutters and even raw material, so you can start carving right away.

The Nomad 883 can cut wood, brass, aluminum, machinist wax, tooling boards as well as a variety of plastics, including ABS and acrylic.

Its lid and enclosure keeps shavings inside the mill and helps reduce noise. When it launches, the Nomad 883 will be available with either a tasteful bamboo enclosure or a more utilitarian HDPE enclosure.

Nomad 883 will come with two complementary applications. Carbide Motion lets you control the mill, while MeshCam converts 3D files into a format that Nomad 883 can use as a template.

Carve yourself a browser and pledge at least $1,899 (USD) on Kickstarter to get a Nomad 883 as a reward.
