I am computer challenged and also cant do any cam drawings. Is it possible to learn to program and drive a cnc lathe without being able to cad draw? I am thinking of learning to use cnc but would not like to take a chance and spend lots of money to find I have to rely on an outside programmer.Is there a simple language that all cnc lathes understand .The stuff I want to make is not complex but more repetitive. Ideally I would like to make or buy a simple cheap cnc lathe which would not cost the earth and if it does not work out for me I am not left with a big financial burden. I thought I saw somewhere a college or varsity where the students built a cnc lathe for a project and the plans were freely available.
Second question to show how computer dumb I am. Why do my you tube downloads always take so long and freeze so bad that I loose interest.
3rd question. My daughter asked if her computer would get heavier if she downloaded info for school projects and I couldn't answer her
