Generous Working Area: With an effective engraving area of 300 x 180 x 40 mm (11.8 x 7.1 x 1.8"?), this 3018 CNC can easily accommodate most projects.
Integrated: With an integrated mainboard and custom software, communication between the software and hardware is seamless by design.
Software: The 3018 CNC uses Grbl, with high performance and low cost, is based on parallel port motion control for CNC engraving. It can run in Arduino. It can maintain stable and unbiased control pulses over 30kHz. Grbl contains a full range of prospective acceleration control. It means that the controller will advance 16 to 20 movements to plan the running speed to achieve a steady acceleration.
Wide Application: Can be engraved all types of plastics, soft aluminum, woods, acrylics, PVCs, and PCBs, this CNC machine can be used on a wide range of projects and materials.
High Quality: Plastic body with a profile, small size, light weight, USB interface, GRBL control systems, learn to use the preferred entry. Either by inscribing, and can be carved with lasers(not include).

1. Instructions & Software: Assembly instructions, control software and further information please
2. This item contains the spindle motor, but no laser module. If you want to use laser for engraving, you can buy it additionally. Thanks for your understanding, and please note that the input interface (Should be XH2.54-3P or XH2.54-2P) and input voltage (Should be DC 12V) of the laser module should be compatible with the control board on 3018. Besides, the original motor holder is round, please make sure the shape of your laser module is suitable for installation.
1. This machine does not work on metal. Mainly used to engrave wood. Please contact us for further information.
2. ER11 needs to be shrink fitting(Contact us for more details). From December 2018 on, the ER11 is preassembled before shipping.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Whats the different between 500mw laser, 2500mw laser, 5500mw laser
A: All these lasers can not engrave/mark on any metal, they are mainly used on engraving wood.
2500mw laser can cut about 1mm normal wood.
5500mw laser can cut about 2mm normal wood, engrave on leather and soft plastic.
Please note MDF is not equal to normal wood, as it doesn't have a worldwide standard, so you need to test how deep the laser can cut by yourself.
The machine for a full set of spare parts, shall be installed by the buyers.
We suggest cnc-based buyers to buy, this machine is not industrial grade level.
Generally, it's a little difficult to install ER11 holder. Installation: The aperture is smaller than the actual 0.02mm. According to the high frequency heating, thermal expansion and contraction principle, to expand the hole, then insert the spindle and lock it, and then fix the shaft collet after cooling completely.
Please note from March,2019 we have updated the appearance of control board and lasers, these appearances exist at the same time, can not choose appearance, we will ship randomly. Please make sure you accept both appearances before placing order.
