Roland produced the first desktop CNC milling machine, earning praise from Core77 community members as early as 2005: "Go with the Roland if you want something more of a plug’n’play." "90% of the people I asked recomended a Roland…" and "The Roland and other similar machines are more geared toward commercial environments (nice enclosures, more power, etc.)"
The MDX-50 is a benchtop CNC mill with automated milling and unmatched ease-of-use features. An ideal solution for short-runs and prototypes, it reduces operation time and simplifies production so that anyone can produce accurate prototypes in metal, wood, plastic and many more materials.
