Default I have a question about CNC

I know nothing about CNC and doubt I will ever do anything on one. But out of curiosity I have often wondered, Do you have to sand anything after a CNC cuts it out? Or is it ready for finish?

Can't help with that one Herb but I am sure someone from the CNC section will be along soon.

Herb
yes on the sanding...
but no if you desire the more rustic hand worked look...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

I have a CarveWright and it requires no sanding on almost all projects.

Depends on your settings. With a very close step over of the bit from one pass to the next, and depending on the bit used, such as a ballnose bit, I've gotten away with no sanding required on a lot of projects. V bits, or wider passes will usually require some. But, never very much.
