SmartBench is my go-to machine and the hub of my workshop; I don't know what I'd do without it.
The Smartbench has greatly expanded my scope of projects I can take on.
I have made 150+ BTCC splitters with SmartBench. With PrecisionPro + it was 1/3 quicker
To have the ability to cut a full sheet of material without having to spend out on a full bed machine was a massive plus point for me.
I love my Yeti SmartBench and wouldn't trade it for anything. It is the primary reason I have been able to make a career change in the past year.

In order to get cutting, you’ll need to use your own CAD/CAM software to design and create your projects. We recommend you use Vectric VCarve Pro or Autodesk's Fusion 360 to model and CAM process your files. Fusion is free to makers, education and small businesses.
Other G Code generating CAD/CAM packages can be used.
