Need a small CNC machine but don't want to compromise on quality or reliability? This 7x12 milling package from Zen Toolworks includes just about everything you need to mill PCBs, non-ferrous metals, plastics, and wood. This comprehensive kit features NEMA 17 stepper motors, precision ground lead screws, rigid PVC / aluminum frame, Arduino based 3-axis control system, 100W Quiet Operation DC spindle, and Deskproto CAM software for generating tool path from common STL file.
Want to get additional functionality from your machine? Convert this kit into a high precision 3D printer by adding an extruder or/and heatbed. A future upgrade kit will make this easy, but the platform is ready to accept your solution.
This is a kit that you build!
