The Rownd Lathe is a compact CNC lathe designed for shaping various materials like wood, aluminum, and plastic. It boasts a user-friendly interface and specialized software for creating custom designs or tapping into the extensive open-source Rownd Library for pre-made designs. Featuring a large 7" touch screen, it offers crucial machine information like usage time, rotation speed, and feed rate at a glance. Users can effortlessly control its functions through a web or mobile app, enhancing convenience. What's more, it's gamepad-compatible, ensuring a safe and enjoyable machining process.
