CNC technology is not only being embraced in high-volume furniture companies, but ShopBot tools are used by both novice and master craftsmen making furniture in their shops. The opportunities and advantages that CNC routing brings to furniture making has pushed aside the stigma once associated with using technology instead of doing more of the work by hand.
The thought that using a CNC would jeopardize the authenticity of the work has been replaced with the understanding of how much quality and uniqueness can be added to furniture designs.
Using a ShopBot CNC is an asset in other ways as well. You can be far more efficient, both with time and materials. For example, traditional knock-down furniture assemblies are very time consuming to design and get perfect without a whole pile of jigs and templates. The CNC uses digital versions of the templates, created in software, instead of physical templates, which reduces the amount of production time needed, as well as providing more precision.
You also have the ability to try out your design and assemblies on your computer before you cut into your material, creating less material waste. Quickly modify your design on the computer to adjust fit and proportions, or take an existing design and transform it into new product. With the proper hardware and software, you can take your existing 2D and 3D furniture parts and convert them to a digital format that the CNC understands. This digital version of your parts can be transformed to produce any number of sizes and shapes of your original design. One furniture assembly can now become an entire line of furniture!
Furniture making requires both creativity and skill. The precision ShopBots offer will help your designs shine.
