Bantam Tools presents new course


Bantam Tools is launching a new Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Getting Started Course on the basics of milling 2D and 2.5D designs to give CNC users hands-on experience milling engravings and machining designs.

This new course, available online at, provides hands-on experience machining SVG files to gain experience and build confidence using the machine and its software to unlock the power of CNC machining. The course is a follow-up to the popular Bantam Tools Desktop CNC 4th Axis Course launched earlier this year, according to the company.

“As our CNC customer base grows with more engineers, designers and first-time users, we’ve found that there is more need to learn the basics of CNC milling,” Bre Pettis, CEO of Bantam Tools, said in a statement. “Participating in the Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Getting Started Course provides CNC users a leg up on tips and tricks and gives them the confidence to start machining functional parts and prototypes.”
