I already wrote a review, but I thought I would do another one to share how absolutely amazing this CNC machine is at engraving PCBs (even with stock spindle). The track separation is superb, and there were absolutely no burred edges on any of the tracks. I did not need to sand the face of the board to remove any rough burrs. I am truly satisfied with the performance and accuracy of this machine. I have attached a picture of a test engraving, this was a single pass run so excess copper wasn't removed between traces but it still came out fine.
I have really enjoyed the 3018-PRO. My daughter and I had fun putting it together. I have added a drag chain along the X axis to keep the wires nice and tidy. I added X, Y, and Z limit switches to their zero so I can home the machine automatically. When I get some more time, I would like to also add the X, Y, and Z limit switches to the positive extreme. I have ordered a new button to be used as an abort/pause switch. I have a switch in place now but it doesn't look quite right as it was a reset switch I scavenged off something I took apart. The only thing I do not like about this machine is the size. I like that I can just set it on my desk and mess around with it. If only I could still do that and have a larger working area. For learning, doing small projects, having fun, this is a fantastic machine.
The machine is fairly easy to put together. The problem I had was the under bed mounts, screws are just barely long enough. Once set up I installed the Offline Controller as I want mine to be standalone. Again Easy! Started up the machine, attempted my first level (I need practice) and ran my own gcode file with success.
had no problems with build, followed instructions and hay ho good to go
I am new to cnc carving , but the machine has only done the iPhone design and now the motor for the x and y axis do not work at all. I tried with the software included, and easel! I wish I could return the item!!!
