3018MAX
« on: December 13, 2019, 02:30:40 AM »
Hi, been looking for a small cnc for some time and studied all those videos and comments.
Using my table top as my workspace determines the max size  and I found something like
the 30x18 class to be what I can handle, with the limitations that implies.
I found many complains on stability for the models with a lot of 3D printed parts and Im looking
for a little more rigid model.
Found this named 3018 MAX or 3018 Pro-Max, on Ali-express. All metallic but spindle motor is probably a bit week? 40x40 profile for frame should be better than 25x25 I think?
Has someone any experience with this model?

I have one with the 3D printed parts, no complaints about that aspect of them but the spindle was a joke (maybe cut foam but that was about it). I replaced it with a high frequency spindle and it's a different beast, of course that cost more than the whole machine but I had a spare from my previous CNC.

Ok, that's my plan to, to keep the motor holder and find a better spindel motor with 52mm diam. 400 - 500 W will be more wight to move but I think it will work.
