I have never used a CNC machine before? Will I be able to learn how to use it?

Yes! You will be joining the thousands of first-time, beginner users of CNC into our ecosystem that have found success and enjoyment in using their LongMills. Please check out our user interviews from our Beta Testers to get a first-hand look at their experiences.

The large majority of our users have never used a CNC machine before, which is why we have created our resources for the machine to be as thorough and comprehensive as possible.

If you’re first starting out, here’s a list of things we recommend checking out:

Our resources page

Our resources page covers all of the information you need to know to start out with your CNC, including topics about:

  • Software
  • Hardware
  • Cutting speeds
  • Workholding
  • Assembly
  • and more…

We recommend all users read through the resources to get an overview of everything they need to know about using their LongMill.


Our Youtube channel contains dozens of tutorials and other videos on using your CNC machine. We also have a Community Videos Playlist that also shares tutorials and videos on how other customers use their LongMills.

Facebook Group and Online Forum

Our Facebook Group and Online Forum are a great way to connect with other LongMill users and gather shared knowledge about the LongMill and CNCing in general.
