Tech: Dektop CNC Machine

Thanks to Carbide 3D, looks like we will be getting to build beyond 3D printers at our desktop with their new CNC machine.



“This is the Nomad 883: a mill that takes building beyond ABS and PLA plastics to wood, brass, aluminum and more. The unit wields a brushless DC spindle motor that routs designs on an 8 x 8-inch machining area…… Here, a solid aluminum frame is enclosed on the sides with either bamboo or plastic and there’s a polycarbonate lid to keep noise and dust to a minimum — key downsides to most CNC equipment. In terms of exact size, the Nomad ticks the tape at 19 x 17 x 16in. (around 48 x 43 x 40cm) and weighs in at a somewhat hefty 50lbs/22.68kg (for comparison, a MakerBot Replicator 2X is 39.25lbs/17.8kg). If you’re looking to snag one, you’ll have to wait for the fourth production run (set to ship in November) and be willing to part with $1,999. That’s a $500 discount for Kickstarter backers, and the price tag includes a smattering of building materials and two software options to get things started.”
