+Since we’re on the subject of CNC, why are so many kits laser cut, not CNC? Is the equipment for CNC more expensive than for laser cutting? Is CNC impractical for mass production?
laser cutting is 10 times faster for cutting and in production time is money. CNC does not cut clean inside 90 degree corners, when setting up parts on a sheet they can be as close as .030 thousandths with a laser CNC hogs out a lot of material way more than the a laser beam. which is only .006 to .012Since we’re on the subject of CNC, why are so many kits laser cut, not CNC?

Laser cutting and CNC are two very good processing methods, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. The designer chooses the appropriate processing method according to his own design. CNC machining different parts uses 4 different tools to achieve the design. The effect, any cutting parts need to be polished.looking at the two cuts CNC and laser the CNC looks like it is chewing through the wood and not cutting all the way through. You are looking so close to the laser cut sheet you can see the sanding marks from 80 grit paper and the laser cut is very sharp and clean and you can cut 3/4 of an inch thick material in one pass.
This is the reason kit companies do not use a CNC cutter it is just not practical

Many people have been waiting in the developer's QQ group. I don't know how many of the kits sold in May will be left in EBAY.You should contact the manufacturer and tell them they would have multiple orders from SOS members.
