    Don't know if Jacqui sent you the same PM about multi-axis acetate milling machine for prototyping frames / small batch. But MEI makes one and it is pretty darn cool! Would love to have one of them!

    I wonder if this thread will make a turn into making frames with 3-D printers...

    CMS has a better unit A small Italian company and one in India both make 3 axis units that are affordable enough that retail shops could make their own.
