Use a multi-point rotating tool to remove material from the workpiece. Start by fixing a block of metal or plastic material inside the CNC mill. Using G-code, the CNC machine is programmed to rapidly mill out parts from the block of raw material. Basic mills consist of a 3-axis system (X, Y, and Z), which is still one of the most popular and widely used machining processes. In 3-axis machining, the workpiece remains fixed, and the rotating tool cuts along the x, y, and z axes. 4-axis CNC machining and 5-axis CNC machining have higher versatility and are often used in the production of high-precision parts.
