SainSmart Genmitsu CNC Router 3018 DIY Kitbrand: SainSmart SKU: CNC3018-NEW
Generous Working Area
With an effective engraving area of 300 x 180 x 45 mm (11.8 x 7.1 x 1.8”), the Genmitsu can easily accommodate most projects.
With an integrated mainboard and custom software, communication between the software and hardware is seamless by design.
The Genmitsu uses Grbl, high performance, open-source software for controlling movement, and runs on Arduino. Its dependability and simplicity make Grbl an industry standard, so there’s no lack of support and resources available when you get stuck.
Capable of cutting all types of plastics, woods, acrylics, PVCs, PCBs and soft surface of aluminum, the Genmitsu can be used on a wide range of projects and materials.
Assembly instructions are provided, but if you get stuck, check out the SainSmart wiki page or contact us with any questions that arise.
The Genmitsu CNC
Designed for the absolute beginner, the Genmitsu is a great tool for starting CNC learning. If wood-working is your hobby, you can use it to add features like curved words and exquisite patterns. If you are a student just learning CNC, it can help you engrave models which you are coding and designing.
The Genmitsu is capable of cutting all types of plastics, soft aluminum, woods, acrylics, PVCs, and PCBs, and a wide range of other materials. The effective engraving depth is 1.8 inches. You will find the SainSmart Genmitsu is an excellent self-teaching tool which allows you to try your DIY ideas on an inexpensive platform without the risk of damaging expensive equipment.
The machine is quite neatly packed and it comes with an assembly instruction booklet.
You will feel the quality of its mechanical parts is excellent. The platform is quite sturdy, the lead screws are well made. It is pretty easy manually turning the screw to move the platform and the spindle around.
It’s built on Arduino and Grbl (both open source) support, tutorials, additional training, and new ideas to try are plentiful and easy to find elsewhere online.
Laser Module Available
If you are an experienced CNC engraving enthusiast looking for an upgrade, you can add the laser module kit to the machine. With this module, it can absolutely give you different ways to unleash your creativity. (Purchase here)

Im still putting it together but I will let you no
Hard to properly use but very competitive price for the quality
I must admit I was a little skeptical at first, but I got my delivery sooner than expected, with everything there and working. The only thing that I would like to have next time is an email when the package is shipped. Other than that, great!
WENT TOGETHER VERY SMOOTHLY. I ENJOYED THE PROCESS. EASY TO UNDERSTAND I INSTRUCTIONS. ANYONE COULD DO IT.
This is fun! This machine will not create huge masterpieces but it will give you the experience that you'll need to know weather or not you need to spend the money on more of a machine that you may not care for. The only problem I have experienced so far is the vibration caused the set screws to come out on the x axis step motor. However it was nothing that a little lock tight cannot fix. I say spend the cash and learn a new trick!
Just got it in 4 hours ago and so far so good. Assembly wasnt bad even though i did not use directions(which are in engish) it took bme about 2 hours. 30 minutes also was spent getting the collet on the shaft as i had to boil it and tap it on with a small jewelry type hammer. Norton sees many parts of the software suppied as harmful files which worries me some. Using the test file supplied and a spare piece of wood ran my first carving and it run successfully. Make sure your x-axis is fully level on all bars or youll wonder why the x axis wont move. Once i aligned it everything ran smoothly. I also ordered liit switches for the machine and a z probe. Edit: Ok this is one day after my original review. The machine works great. It comes with Grbl 0.9 on the board and GrblControl 0.8 the new version of GrblControl Candle doesn't work with the machine. It recognizes the machine but won't move an axis. This may have to do with the Grbl 0.9 and Candle is for Grbl 1.1 most likely. The board can be updated if you are willing to take on the task I will at some point. My one gripe is that it's not a full 300 mm by 180 mm like it should be it's actually 300 mm by 175 mm. The table is 300 mm by 180 mm just the back 5mm I cannot use because the table setup only travels 175mm. Either way for the price I was not able to find a machine with this large of a foot print so its still 5 star. This can easily be made to handle a much larger foot print just by ordering some new extrusion and changing some settings in GRBL.
