Class-leading value got even easier to use.
The 3018-PROVer is the latest version of the 3018 Desktop CNC DIY Kit Series. Now Pre-assembled and no fuss with assembly taking less than 15 minutes out of the box.
Still based on open-source Grbl v1.1 the PROVer has stepped up to more powerful but silent Toshiba TB6S109 drivers with added life and performance along with added Optocouplers to protect your mainboard from hard stops without risk of damage and eliminate signal noise for more consistent projects and longevity.
Make more with the all-aluminum body and take advantage of the added stability for milling a wider range of materials while also making clean up even easier with acrylic safety baffles to help contain dust and provide a safety barrier.
Take control of your 3018-PROVer Desktop CNC machine with controls at your fingertips. The 1.8” display will clearly display readouts and provide manual control of your mill without any computer. If a project gets out of hand the PROVer has an emergency stop control that is very visible and easy to access for an immediate shutdown of your machine.
Note: Buyers may be responsible for paying additional import duties or taxes that apply to cross-border purchases. UK adapter not included in this CNC router.
The 3018-PROVer is the newest addition to the Genmitsu CNC 3018 series family. This pre-assembled desktop CNC machine allows you to be up and running in 15 minutes instead of 2 hours, making it no challenge for beginners.
Boasts an all-aluminum body with an oxide blue look, the 3018 PROVer gives you a premium look and feel for your machine.
The 5mm acrylic baffles can block the 'flying' pieces of wood/other cutaway materials so that you can safely monitor the engraving process.
Offline Controller with 1.8" TFT LCD Display
This machine comes standard with a newly designed offline controller with 1.8" display so you can view readouts clearly and control the CNC router without connecting to a computer.
Laser Module Available
If you are an experienced CNC engraving enthusiast looking for an upgrade, you can add the matching SainSmart laser module kit to the machine. With this module, it can absolutely give you different ways to unleash your creativity.

Very good experience of the support and the quality of the product itself. It seems extremely well made. Although Candle is recommended I would suggest UGS is better to use and gives you more control. In terms of other software, I note either Easel or Fusion are listed. These are the two extremes really and I have found a very good middle ground is Vectric's V Carve. Although its not free, it is very good to use and has the correct post processor for the Sainsmart machiine.
I got this because it requires less build time than some of the others, and it was worth it. Yes, I had to spend an evening putting it together, but I would have spent two were I to get the cheaper model. It's worth the time savings alone. The panels that reduce the spray of mess are good, though they do nothing for the front or back. I had to repair some of the screws (they vibrated loose) after a few days, but if it happens again, a little threadlocker will fix that. I recommend getting collets in every size, since you may get other end mill kits and need them. I also recommend putting this in a room far from where people will be annoyed by the sound. If you decide to mill something that's going to take a day or more then you don't want to do it where your family will have to listen to it for days on end. Like all CNC machines, it's like running a dremel in your house-- people will hear it. So far I've worked with MDF and layers of very thin plywood. It's been great. I'm about to start working with soft copper and I really look forward to it.
I really appreciated how quick and easy this was to setup. I'll admit I didn't worry too much about cable management , but they included everything required to keep it neat and clean. you may want to order a dry pfte lubricant, and will need a high accuracy caliper to get fully setup.
All things arrived to my home really fast, took a week only, good explanation to mount it and there was no trouble att all so far, haven't test all things yet, but i will do so later on, thanks for the gift included in the package nice addition / Hans
No matter which machine you are using DON'T assume the manufacture's steps per mm are correct! The cheap ball screws used are ALWAYS different than expected. I needed to change my steps per mm from 800 down to 794.483. You'll need to measure a fixed distance and measure it with a ruler or caliper and do the division to figure your correct steps per mm. You'll need to do this for all three axis. Then set the values by inserting the axis associated values one time each.
Simply genial, every part, every detail, are wonderful designed. Work like a Swiss watch. I love the Cnc model.
Well designed. Put it together without a hitch. The "bundle" including the laser etc is a heck of a deal. SainSmart I'd love to see a table extension kit for this; all it needs to be really useful is a larger table, longer lead screw and guide rails, and side supports. Extending it to be able to do approximately or just over 12" (305mm) in the y axis would be absolutely wonderful.
It's been a learning experience but I love it.
Not quite the 15 minutes to assemble as advertised but in 2 hours I had it done. The SD card was a big help since the video shows you the steps to assemble as you follow along with the manual. Next is downloading the software and doing a test carving.
