Very happy with the product that I've received. Assembly and setup to the first cut has been straightforward and enjoyable. I chose the Pro rather than the PROver so that I could have more flexibility in choosing which upgrades I wanted, but the base machine is solid. For anyone interested in this kit, I'd recommend a set of ball drivers, as it's far easier to use than the provided hex wrenches. I wish there were some more guidance on cable management, as this is largely left up to the imagination and provided cable wrap and zip ties. Luckily for me I could print cable clips and a drag chain, but regardless an idea of how to keep cables tidy and out of the work area would have been appreciated.
Two friends and I were very excited to find a capable machine like this at a good price point. The particular project we had in mind wound up being just too large for the ready-assembled PROVER kit with the extra features which was a little sad, but ultimately this machine works just perfectly with a couple more seconds zeroing the router by hand before an operation. Putting it together really wasn't much trouble at all, but having an extra set of hands to line up a hole or two probably made our life easier than a one-man attempt. I would absolutely recommend picking up a set of end mills with the kit, which only came with engraving bits. The engraving bits worked wonders though - we tried the test Dragon file that came with it and the machine did a beautiful job. We were very surprised with how fine the engraving detail was when we cleared away the pile of sawdust. It's been milling away happily in MDF and plastic for us since then. With a few evenings of internet trawling we managed to get the machine talking with our copy of Solidworks too with only needed to manually edit one or two lines of Gcode (removing auto tool change, adjusting feed rate for some materials). The customer support was also super responsive and helpful when we were trying to decide which machine we needed.
I use this machine as I'm developer and use it as lab gadget found this amazing.. I did mostly of my this work.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FrGPu49nKsw using this machine... thanks to sainsmart...
Enjoyed put this together, very easy.
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 bought this CNC after watching numerous YouTube video reviews of the machine. The 3018 platform seems to be quite popular with several versions available from numerous merchants online. However, I went the Sainsmart 3018 Pro because as a someone new to CNC routing and engraving I figured it would be best to go with an established company that can provide premium support and accessories for the machine. Additionally, they also have local stock in the US a definite plus, as it significantly reduced the shipping and delivery times compared to some of the cheaper machines available online that ship directly from China. Setup was quite easy as I had watched quite a few YouTube videos of other users unboxing and setting up their 3018 Pro before I got mine. I am mainly interested in PCB engraving so the stock spindle probably will have to be replaced with one that has a higher RPM. I have two suggestions for Sainsmart, firstly, I see that they have a higher RPM 300W Spindle available, however this is not a easy drop in replacement (at least not for a beginner). It would have been extremely thoughtful of Sainsmart if they also sold a 52mm collar for the 300W spindle that can work on the 3018 Pro Z axis without the need to build or 3D print a collar that will fit on the existing mechanism. My other suggestion is, instead of shipping the CNC with a sample of similar engraving bits, a mixed assortment of bits and end mills would have been better. Overall I am quite satisfied with my 3018 Pro.
Excellent very easy to assemble and use
Very easy to assemble, parts were all complete and directions clear. Everything checked out when first fired up. Good job!
