There is so much information available for this machine that it would be difficult to have problems with setup. For me a better spindle was essential and I installed a Makita. The stock spindle is ok for light work but not when using 1/4 bits on harder materials. My only issues were that the threaded holes in the chassis cross members that secure the spoil board are oversize and it is very easy to strip them, especially if one intends to change spoil board frequently. I have to do that as I machine larger items that require clearance below the table. Re-threading to 6mm solved the problem. The gantry has a little flex with the heavier spindle and I notice that return to physical work zero isn’t always exact. The position indicators are correct, but the bit is sometimes out by 0.1 X or Y.
Otherwise I’m very happy with the machine. It is perfect for jobs where absolute precision isn’t necessary and I’ll keep it for that work, but I will spend the money and but something better in due course.
I've had all of these ideas in my head that I needed a CNC machine to test. The 4040xe was the answer. Setup was about 30 minutes. It took me a couple of tries to get the test file to carve. After I figured that out I carved a custom image and it came out just right. I'm currently very pleased with the purchase. I just need to see how long it holds up.
Buyed on amazon, it's a very nice machine, easy to assembly, come from 5 years of 3D printing, i'm not lost, just look some YouTube videos, and you are ready, to do you're first engrave, a lot of projects, can doed with this awesome machine, i recommand it ! :D
Would have given 5 star's but limit switch won't work on back left side the rest work just fine
A big upgrade from my generic CNC 3018.
Shipping and packaging were both excellent. I was able to assemble the cnc in less than an hour. The parts fit perfectly with no misalignment. The hardware is packaged in a divided tray and clearly marked as to which bolts go where.. The included user manual was very helpful and easy to follow. Great picture's made the assembly simple.
The machine was square for the most part right out of the box with no adjustments except the z axis did need a little squaring up. Very simple procedure. Be sure to use the bottom holes for the spindle plate. Mount the spindle about an inch below the bracket and the shorter bits will work fine.
The wiring is pre-installed in the drag chains and mount with two drag chain brackets. There is plenty of wire to use the controller on either side of the machine. All the connections are color coded and clearly marked as to what goes where.
I have been able to cut 3/4 inch material with the 300 watt spindle but this can be upgraded to a Dewalt or makita router with a different bracket.
The 4040 xe runs flawless with Easel software as the post processor. When setting up with Easel the first time be sure to use "other" and select FoxAlien then 4040 xe from the set up menu. Easel is very easy to learn.
I have had no problems with the machine whatsoever and would recommend it to anyone looking to get started in cnc work. Can't beat it in this price range.
So far everything is great, had a broken belt when I opened the box but thankfully they gave 2 extras so it was an easy fix. Probably more of a shipping problem than manufacture problem. I’ve only had it a couple of weeks but so far everything works like it should and it has produced great results considering my limited experience. I am experienced with diode laser and cnc is very similar as far as construction of the machine. Very happy with my purchase so far.
Just wanted to share my appreciation to FoxAlien and Albee Ye ([****]) for their continued support and excellent customer service. I would recommend their products and this support page to anyone even thinking about CNC.
Customer service is superb. Very communicative and genuinely helpful. A positive and refreshing purchasing experience. Machine is still in the assembly stage, but it looks well engineered and I have high hopes for using it. FoxAlien - Highly recommended.
