I have been watching videos about it today. Other than portability and space required I can’t see the advantage over a normal CNC. They say it’s better because you aren’t limited by the size but who wants to be standing there for an hour or two pushing it around when you could just be watching the machine do it for you. They are also talking like you just throw an SVG file on there and set your parameters on the screen. That would be easy if you are just cutting out pieces but what if you are doing something where you have different depths and some cuts outside the line and some inside? Are you doing all that on that little screen? Have you seen anything where they need more than one pass to cut out? Everything I have seen is in very thin material.
