A great CNC project for a beginner is to make a sign. The first thing you will need to do is mill the wood and then design the sign by using CAD or CAM software. You then will run the actual operation of the CNC machine and make sure to clean up the edges of the sign. The next step is simply painting the letters on the sign and sanding away any excess paint. Finally, you drill the mounting holes in it and apply some finish.
- When you have your design picked outyou want to run the CNC operation and clean up the edges.
- You need to paint each individual letter on the signand then sand away the excess paint.
- Make sure that you drill mounting holes in the sign so you can hang the sign up wherever you please.
“The first step, as with any CNC project, is to design your project and then pick out the material you’re going to use.”
