Default CNC

If you know nothing about CNC how hard is it to learn how to run CNC mill? I have a Micro-Mark mini mill and am thinking about changing it to CNC. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Ed

How are you with coordinate system (X,Y,Z). Its real easy if you can find a controller that has some good conversational to it, thats just fill in the blank type stuff. If you bad with coord system and have never done any kind of programming, it can be a bit daunting, but is achievable

I have only been running a computer for 4 1/2 years and that is on a Mac so that should give you some idea what I can do when it comes to working with computers and CNC or programing. Ed
