Goliath is a robotic portable CNC for cutting flat material like plywood

As the Chinese curse goes, “may you live in interesting times.” Sometimes, “interesting times” is actually a good thing. In the case of CNCs, there are a lot of new ideas, methods and designs appearing for those interested in digital woodworking.

In a short amount of time, we’ve seen several remarkable alternative CNC machines emerge. The Maslow CNC, a hanging CNC based on the design of wall plotters. The amazing Shaper Origin — a super smart CNC router that’s just now becoming available. Michael Warren’s Grow CNC, a portable gantry based machine that could make it to market. And, now for something completely different, meet Goliath: A CNC robot that you position directly on the surface to be cut and drives around on top of it.

Like the Shaper Origin, you move the Goliath to work being cut, making it a portable CNC. That’s the opposite of most table based CNCs.
