CNC Routers


Protolab has two 3 axis CNC machines on site; one Zenbot 16x24 inch tabletop CNC, and one 4x8 foot CNC that we built. Both are available for members to use, however users must first prove themselves on the Zenbot before getting checked out on the larger 48x96 machine for safety reasons.
