  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Decent starter

I bought this having never used or owned a cnc machine. I used basic freeware to program it and it was awesome. Until about a year later. Even though I routinely maintenances it once a week greasing and oiling the normal wear and tear spots, out of the blue the z axis just dropped. The bronze bushing inside of it no longer holds and it’s seems totally irreparable. I suppose I could buy the upgrade kit for it l, but after all that is said and done you might as well have bought an x carve. This is a great product for someone who only wants a year of decent carving. SainSmart Genmitsu CNC Router 3018-PROVer Kit Review

This is a great beginner CNC machine!

I have experience with 3D printers and thought I would dip into the world of CNC. I have seen numerous articles and ads for 3018 kits, but the SainSmart 3018-PROVer Kit was highly recommended. I was not disappointed! The kit was extremely well packed and included everything I needed to get started. The manual was easy to follow and it took me less than an hour to assemble. The SainSmart website has great documentation and resources to get you started. I also highly recommend the Facebook "SainSmart Genmitsu CNC Users Group". I found much useful information there.

Great first machine

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. SainSmart Genmitsu CNC Router 3018-PROVer Kit Review

Nice CNC Router Kit

The CNC Router Kit is really well done. The instructions and descriptions of the items are very professional. The instructional video and the starter software helped me get the system up and running in one afternoon. There is a lot to learn and it is a very instructional system. I am still waiting on the delivery of the laser part of the kit that I am told was shipped separately. SainSmart Genmitsu CNC Router 3018-PROVer Kit Review
