Question by Hasan999: CNC Machining / Manufacturing?
I was wondering, is there any CNC machine that uses virtual 3D files from Computer to shape an Aluminium block FROM ALL SIX SIDES, completely without any human interaction ?
For example: we transfer the 3D file, place the block, and wait for it produce the 3D model autonomously?
Again: “all six sides” autonomously? (not 5 axis – but 6 axis – complete 3D)

Yes and this technology has been out for 10 years!
I’ve seen this at dentist offices and now with larger items such as with artificial limbs, and a few weeks ago was announced they are making houses and other large items in 3D with this method.
