CNC Rules!

"This will redudant the engineers, technician and operators..." Some say,
"Just tell the machine and you will have all sorted out perfectly... " the other follows

CNC machine of any kind is another piece of machinery that requires human to opera, not just any human, but skill machinist.

But they couldn't care less if what they are doing are correct or safe. they wouldn't bother if the cutting tool will break with the size of cut, they wouldn't care how the finishing with turn out... all this require careful programming by skill engineers, technician or machinists.
So, be warned,
