Do you think that the ATF would rule that you pushing a button constituted 20% of the work on the completed receiver?
I don't know thats why I asked.

There is at least speculation, if not fact, that the ATF would consider the programming of the CNC machine to be part of the work.
No matter how you slice will be a machine doing the actual work. What if the programing code was on a SD or flash drive that you simply had to plug into the CNC machine and it took over from there. I believe there is a strong argument to be made that it is or could be made legal. It would be no different than downloading a file to print a gun on a 3D printer which is at this time legal.
