CNC router for $200 - Sainsmart Genmitsu 3018 Pro review and tutorial

3D printing has become much cheaper and accessible, but there has been a lack of decent CNC routers at the same price point. Now the 3018 CNC Pro from Sainsmart aims to fill that void.

Featuring a working volume of 300 x 180 x 45mm, this CNC router goes together well and is capable of machining timber, acrylic and aluminium. It can also engrave copper to make custom PCBs. This machine largely succeeded with everything I threw at it. For this low price plus a one year warranty, I am very impressed and recommend this for beginners looking to get into the hobby.

I have done a fair bit of CNC machining over the years by am by no means a professional machinist. I look forward to the great tips knowledgeable viewers will post in the comments to assist others.

For any cutters you buy, ensure they are 1/8 inch or 3.175mm in shank diameter.

Purchase the Genmitsu 3018 CNC router:

Amazon (machine): (offline controller): (laser add on, untested by me): you can’t get shipping from Amazon, you can buy it direct from Sainsmart (unfortunately more expensive): Pro wiki: Create: to SVG converter: creator: Inventables: video on lithophane maker: video on Kiri:Moto: quality and affordable filament from X3D. Buy 3, get 1 free and a free sample pack with every order: www.x3d.com.au
