Definition of CNC

CNC is a billiards term that is a part of Pool Cue Terminology.

CNC is an acronym for computerized numerical control, which is a piece of equipment used by pool cue makers in the design of the inlay portion of the product. CNC is known as the opposite of a hand-crafted inlay, and thus, is frowned upon by some pool cue collectors.

CNC machines are also used in the manufacture of pool tables to achieve precision cuts and to ensure that all parts fit together as tightly as possible.
