Some of you may have placed a box of Lego under a tree recently and a few of you may even have received a box of Lego of your own. But one thing is for sure, Lego is no longer just a children's toy these days, it can be used to create some serious machines.
The word 'CNC' has really entered the modern lexicon, especially in regards to watchmaking, but most of us know little about these mysterious machines, bar the fact that they seem to be able to make absolutely anything, quickly and easily.
Another word that is well and truly established in the modern lexicon is Lego, which first began producing their now ubiquitous plastic blocks in 1947. And we all know what Lego does. Or do we? Because Lego has come a long, long way from clipping brightly coloured plastic blocks together. In fact, you can now make CNC machines from Lego.
