14"x12"x3" Next Wave CNC Piranha.
The Piranha from Next Wave Automation is a relatively small but sturdy CNC router. The spindle installed uses standard ER11 collets, and with the collets provided it is capable of holding 1/4" and 1/8" shank tools, though other sizes are available if required (ask a steward for more info). The spindle RPM is electronically controlled and variable from ~0-12,000 RPM.
Materials must be approved for use by a tool steward. The following materials are approved at this time:

If this happens while running a program, it likely means that your workpiece/toolpath is too close to the machine extents. To solve this, you will either need to move your workpiece location, or edit your toolpath to not get as close to the machine extents.
If this error occurs during probing, the starting position for the probing move is likely too high. Jog the Z axis up small amounts until the Z probe move completes successfully.
