Computer names

Do the computers in the CNC Area have names? Jon (talk) 09:15, 23 December 2019 (UTC)

not really, the mill is just `linuxcnc` (I think), and Denford is `cnc-lathe` 'RepRap' Matt
I quite like Clearcutter for the Mill pc.
Don't really have an opinion on what the denford PC should be called but I do quite like Colosson. It's currently multi-purpose as the slicing software for the Anycubic Photon is on it & the Roland Modela MDX-15 is hooked up too. --Danspencer101 (talk) 02:29, 26 December 2019 (UTC)

Area name

While we can argue that 3D printing is a form of CNC, is it time to officially rename this area to clear up any confusion for new members? Jymbob (talk)

I think this makes sense from a 'user wanting to find things' point of view. Members on tours have asked about 3D printing directly, not as a part of CNC.Mikehaber (talk)

Agreed, support name change for area. Jon (talk) 16:44, 11 August 2023 (UTC)
