brand: SainSmart 5 reviews SKU: 101-60-C38 Variants ID: 29586616418383

Compatible With MACH3

MACH3 is professional software that can turn a PC into a CNC machine controller. Genmitsu 3018-MX3 is the only budget-friendly and home CNC alternative to high-end industrial machines that allows you to learn MACH3 software and grow your CNC skills 

(MX3 also compatible with DrufelCNC, a free software. You can also switch to our PROVer controller board if you want to use GRBL software with MX3)

Versatile
With its powerful 9000 RPM spindle and sturdy frame, MX3 can easily carve through wood, plastic, PVBs, PCBs, acrylics, and soft aluminum. The open design with an effective engraving area of 260 x 155 x 35mm(10.2 x 6.1 x 1.4”) allows you to work on even larger pieces with less limits.

Safety-Driven Design
MX3 features two 5mm acrylic baffles on each side of the machine so that you can safely monitor the engraving process. Each axis is equipped with a limit/home switch that stops the tool spindle from leaving the engraving area.

Auto Tool Zero
With one mouse click, MX3 will automatically return to a predefined position, allowing you to easily change and calibrate your tools - a feature you will not find in a generic 3018 machine.

Laser Engraving Support
MX3 supports laser engraving as well! Simply replace the spindle with a laser module(not included). Take your craft work to another level with our 2.5W or 5.5W laser module.

Fun Assembly Experience
The assembly process is guided with our manual and Youtube videos. Save money buying a DIY kit and have fun putting the machine together.

Great little machine

Build didnt take long, Mach3 was very simple to use although a little scary to start with, best advice, watch a few youtube vids first. Only issue was with setting probe, when starting Mach3 it threw a probe error, took quite a while to figure out, so removed the probe.txt from Mach3 folder and all was good. Would certainly recommend so far, lots of reviews seem to say that Mach 3 is complicated, it isn't, at least I dont think it is, just need to understand what it does.
