Unfortunately this unit is not quite sturdy enough for my intended use in V-carve. Several problems came up using this unit. The spindle chuck was out of alignment. The problem being; the chuck and collets were poorly machined. The chuck was 3 thousands out from center and the collets were as much as 10 thousands out from center causing much vibration. Also the inner dimension of the chuck was too small causing the collets not to sit properly and causing the chuck nut not to catch more than a thread or two. Another problem; the bushings on the Z axis drive kept coming loose from the housing. I was able to overcome some of the sturdiness problems by slowing down the feed rate to 16% of normal. Another major annoyance were the work peace mounting screws. You need 3 hands to tighten the wing nuts. I solved this problem by soldering some square washers to the head of the screws. Aside from these problems, I think it is a good machine for the money. .
Ben trying for 3 days nothing.
So far it is great. Made some carving which have been praised. Learning quickly.
We didn't know anything about CNC routers when my wife saw the Genmitsu CNC 3018-PRO featured as a special one-day buy on Amazon. We thought it might provide an opportunity to extend what two of our grandsons have learned from participating in Lego Robotics. After researching the machine, we decided to buy it, and see what they could do with it. The quality of the machine is excellent, and after watching a video, they had it assembled in less than 2 hours. Just running the test programs got them excited enough to know this machine was going to be a good investment in their learning. Since they had no experience with CNC, and got a little confused using some of the software recommended by experienced users. They ran into plenty of challenges before completing their first good quality original project, but learned plenty that has helped them since that time. They also ran into some computer problems caused by a 9 year old laptop that has since been replaced. They're anxious to produce projects like the ones they've seen on the internet, but they don't yet have the skills or knowledge to do that. We are pleased to see their problem solving skills improve as a result of this great little machine, Just a few days after they got the machine, we ordered the Offline Controller and the laser kit for this machine from www.sainsmart.com. I think the manuals could be better, but the boys seem to be used to the style because of all the Lego models they've assembled. We've received good help from SainSmart's customer support, and our grandsons have found plenty of helpful videos on YouTube. They've also found the SainSmart wiki page, and SainSmart Genmitsu CNC Router Facebook Group to be helpful resources. We are glad we took the chance to make this purchase.
Assembly was quite easy, and the build is very solid when done. Engraving (with the recommended Candle software, albeit not with the offline controller) worked well, as did laser engraving when I tried that upgrade. My only complaint about the kit hardware is that a mixed bit collection would have been much more useful than 10 of the same V bit, but additional bits are cheap. The documentation and software learning curve leave much more to be desired. Still 5 stars for anyone who takes the "DIY" in the title seriously, but bear in mind that the effort you have to put in here doesn't end when the assembly does.
The assembly was easy, even for a man that can use only one arm. All the parts fit together like a dream. I have not carved anything as I'll still in the process of learning to program CNC. I intent to try using EASEL for my programming as I plan to use it for making crafts. All together it is a quality product, well worth the money I spent.
I have never used a CNC router machine before and wasn't sure what to expect in complicity of use. My etching needs are small, so this small volume/footprint machine was a perfect solution, especially given its low cost. It took me a little time to get used to the GRBLControl software, which comes with the machine (e.g., setting up home and depth - Z-axis). But after a couple of tries I was making cool etchings that came with the software. I just need to figure out how to make my own G-code files now. I highly recommend this machine for beginners or those who don't need a large volume to work with. Great for making cool crafts!
