I have worked with CNC machines for many years, usually large format laser and specialty multi-axis cutting machines. After a number of years away from the machines, and watching the cost and performance of entry-level machines grow, I decided to get a machine to refresh some of those skills and make some high-quality toys and furniture for my kids.
After much review, the Genmitsu PROVerXL4030 was by far the best value on the market - solid construction, easily extended and modified, and a complete all-in-one package with great community and manufacturer support.
After getting the PROVerXL 4030, I made a set of wooden planets for my son, who loves all things space; routed and then laser detailed.
My daughter loves horses, so we decided to build her a wooden toy barn using the milling and laser-cutting capabilities on the PROVerXL 1010 extension kit. Really happy with the performance and value of the 1010 extension kit for working with wood materials. I am looking at buying a second 4030 to do more detailed laser work now.
