Have not used yet but the setup process was easy. I had it set up and upgraded the motor size in it and was done in less than an hour.
only a few hours of use and it's already rattling itself apart..
I love this machine. I have never operated a cnc and it took me a couple days to figure it out but once I did I have loved it. I have created name puzzles, Christmas ornaments, and a few engraved pieces. However the vibration while cutting has caused screws to come loose and need tightening often and the gold piece on the motherboard has started to come loose and causes my spindle to stop in the middle of a project. I need a replacement motherboard.
I'm a complete CNC newbie, but this was easy to assemble and get running after my initial research on using CNC machines. Machine definitely works great. Software to run it is probably where you'll spend most of your time learning and researching.
Great value for the money. A bit confusing at first trying to learn. But lots of support. Absolutely satisfied
I've owned the 3018SE for a couple months now. Out of the box, it came with very clear step-by-step instructions ( Color photos, details, etc. ) Its 90% built together out of the box. Just had to put in a few screws and make connections. Wires are labeled, plugs on the main-board are labeled. Having never owned a laser etcher, never used one. I just obtained LightBurn, Plugged it in, drag-dropped an image onto the canvas. Randomly guessed 20% power and poof..out came what I expeced. For router work, it takes a bit more knowledge to learn spindle speed, feed rates, chiploads, etc. No CNC router is "Plug and go" there's a learning curve for how to use CAD and how fast/slow to feed things based on your material, cutter, and machine/spindle limits. As a CNC Machinist myself, this product was A+ for me and I've been making PCB's ever since.
The FoxAlien 3018SE router is a great machine. I've done a lot of engraving, and some small router jobs. It's easy to assemble, and operate. I'm 100% satisfied with the quality of the machine, and the price is very good also. If you are looking for a small machine to start out with, I would recommend this one.
This machine is great quality, and is practically ready to use out of the box! You don't need to be a tech genius, an engineer, or a graphic designer to be able to use this machine. It's very easy to assemble and even easier to use. The user manual is beautifully illustrated, easy to follow, and written in perfect English! There are tons of extra's available for this machine such as the off-line controller, the CNC bench vise, and the flip jig. You can literally create anything!
I chose the FoxAlien 3018 Desktop CNC as the first CNC for my small shop, to use on many hobby’s and projects.
It shipped well packaged and showed up with everything in good shape, had good, easy to follow instructions, and had a very clear colour coded wiring diagram, which was very helpful.
The materials used seem to be of high quality, the aluminum extrusions are very clean and rigid, and the acrylic for the enclosure is clear and was shipped with a protective plastic covering it.
It also came with a full set of V Carve bits of different sizes to use.
I haven’t completed a video review of a project, but I will post that soon. I’ll be using Easel as the software. So far have had no issues getting the machine to communicate with Easel.
Very happy with this purchase. As an added note, FoxAlien has a very active Facebook group with good support from its members, and from FoxAlien themselves.
I have had a little problem with a motor that sometimes runs or not. I contacted the company and they decided I need a part. It was shipped within 2 days and I am waiting for it now.
