The purpose of this video is to ease new user CNC users into getting productive quickly and affordably with their new CNC machine.

We have focused on our beginner CNC3D machine users with a Nighthawk controller here but this video will most likely apply to all users who are new to CNC and have a GRBL or xPROV5 controller.

We hope you enjoy this video and hopefully it will build some confidence for using your new machine.
