I’m sure that engineers don’t get excited by a CNC machined part, where the machine keeps changing the tool, a block of aluminium goes in and a machined part comes out. In fact I know that at least one ex-Mono racer has a factory full of such kit. But to an outsider, this stuff is amazing.
I'm a self taught CAD designer, and I've had things made on CNC several times now (though I can't afford the machines myself, and have to make do with normal lathes and mills), and I'm still awe-struck by what they can make. Tiny single-piece turbines with complex curved flutes! Yes please. I have no need of them, but I'd put them on the mantlepiece. Any entire cylinder head make from a single piece of metal and a day in a machine? Would make a beautiful coffee table.
Perhaps if you use them, or their output on a daily basis you become used to what they can do. But I think most people in engineering or manufacturing cannot help but gawp open-mouthed at CNC CADCAM components.
