You can program cnc by hand using MS word. You just have to know what your doing. Althow once you begin working with 5 axes and more it get's confusing real fast so your better to CAD it.
If the AR180b receiver is anything like the standart ar-15 receiver it a rather simple part to do. Just time consuming for all the little external details. If I recall correctly it was quoted for about 18 hours per receiver on conventionnal machining by my shop's panner..(he's pretty good on estimate, I was just curious what he would quote on it so I brought him a cad file of the ar-15 lower...no I won't make any even if I could get them done in 37.89 minutes in the millturn 7 axes cnc).
Before manking any parts either for airsoft or real gun always better to check before you start cutting.
