Starting a CNC milling business

Postby T3hTig3r » Thu Mar 05, 2015 5:41 am

Hey guys, I would like to start a milling business using CNC. I have been formulating a business plan and looking around for the best machine offers. However, I am quite new to this and I would like to get a general overview of the industry. How do I put my foot through the door? Are there any hurdles to watch for? Any trick and shortcut would greatly be appreciated. Regards -tiger

CNC milling business is a juicy business that has a great potential for success and growth. However, starting a business requires a lot of planning and making important financial decisions that influence the business. With the emergence of technology, CNC machines have done invaluable work in the society. Normally, the problems of making 3D designs can be done efficiently and effectively by a CNC machine. :|

I thought I could throw my hat into the ring, so here goes: Like any other businesses, starting a cnc milling hustle can be a bit nerve-wrecking so I'd suggest that you do things professionally. If you don't take anything away from my words today, take this: Create a simple business plan

Every business requires planning and preparation; therefore the need for a business plan. A business plan is a road map and which guide you into achieving the business goals. It is useless writing a lengthy business plan and neglecting the important components.
Important component like, what will your business deal with, who are your target customers, how much you will be charging and ways to achieve the business goals should also be included.

It is also important to hire an analysis expert to carry out strength, weakness, opportunity and threat study before starting your business. The information collected by the expert will help you to formulate a detailed business plan. I am sure you can scout for one here at Amateurcnc or somewhere online.
Sorry for the wall of text - but I thought I should share that.

Hey twain, why you got to be a b****? If you don't have anything to say just keep it to yourself. He was illustrating a point that people who have good business plans somewhat know what to expect from their business. You did not have to be so condescending. Grow up a bit. Shut your trap. :evil: :evil: :evil:
Why procrastinate today? When you can do it tomorrow!

You can come over and shut it for me derrp. I was pointing out how idiotic it is to have something self explanatory and to waste time with stuff which don’t add value to your business. And why the hell am I explaining myself to you? Are you a demigod or somethin? I will say whatever I want and there isn't anything you can do about it. Get a job and stop being a web sheriff. :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Oh I almost forgot another lesson learnt in "Entrepreneurship101". Business location may play a massive part in the success of your business. It is important to find to find an affordable business location that will offer you ample space. If you don’t have a good business location, you can contact a real estate agent to can offer you a potential location for your business. There is still a long way to go and spending lots of money during this process is not economical. Just stick to your budget.

If the cost of renting a space is beyond your budget, get a small space. You garage or your basement, can also serve the purpose. You may also consider hiring a contractor to refurnish your working area.
