We've partnered with Autodesk to create a MyDIYCNC FabCAM post processor for their powerful CAM applications. Now you can export GCode straight from Fusion 360, HSMWorks and HSMXpress for processing on your MyDIYCNC Desktop CNC Machine. For rapid prototyping you can't beat Fusion 360 for a fully-capable, easy to use cloud application, and for 2.5 axis CNC work, it's absolutely free!
Autodesk CAM tools bring CAD and CAM together for a truly integrated design to manufacturing solution. Whether your design tool of choice is SolidWorks®, Inventor®, or Fusion 360 – Autodesk has CAM solutions that allow you to take advantage of a familiar workflow which means you are up and running faster.
We designed our new family of MyDIYCNC Desktop CNC Machines to provide the best available precision and reliability at an affordable price.
Precision parts machined from billet aluminum make assembly easy and ensures correct alignment and smooth performance. Motors, power supply, electronics and spindle are included as standard so no more guessing what additional parts to get and if they're compatible - our Complete Kit and Turnkey systems come ready and eager to work on your next project1.
With our optional USB Solution we provide a complete hardware and software package. No more complicated setup or configuration; when you use our USB Solution with FabCAM desktop CNC application it's pretty much plug-in-and-go2. The same system runs equally well on Windows, Linux or Mac host systems.
We include pictorial step-by-step instructions and manual, technical support, advice and recommendations to help make your next project a complete success. Because from our perspective, your success is our success.
Whether you're making engine parts, model airplanes, engraving medals or prototyping printed circuit boards, our Desktop CNC Machines provide a highly versatile and capable tool with which to take your creativity to the next level.
Our machined parts are made for us by a high-precision company and Boeing aircraft sub-contractor
- All-aluminum design for stability, precise alignment and robust performance.
- Solid square tube frame machined for precise alignment
- Solid aluminum diagonal brace ensures and maintain squareness
- Aluminum table maintains rigidity while offering threaded mounting holes and clamping slots throughout.
- Tough HDPE gantry supports and backbrace for rigidity and precision alignment
- Carriages milled from aluminum block reduces parts and simplifies assembly while ensuring the precision and alignment critical to the final output.
- Standard anti-backlash mechanism on all axes ensures high-precision
- Mechanical step resolution of 0.00025 inch/step, increasable to 0.000031 inch/step with micro-stepping electronics
- State-of-the-art Igus bearings provide smooth and precise motion
Our standard electronics use our own single-step high-torque stepper driver boards, driving a set of three MyDIYCNC 12V stepper motors, one for each axis. Geared to a ratio of 200 steps per revolution, this arrangement provides a high resolution of 4000 steps per inch, (0.00025 inch for each step, i.e. a quarter of a thousandth of an inch). For most applications this resolution is more than adequate, but for those who want a higher resolution we offer microstepping electronics as an upgrade. That upgrade can increase the step resolution to an amazing 0.00003 inches per step (32000 steps per inch).
USB control via the MyDIYCNC USB Solution
Separate microprocessor control manages timing and precision under control of FabCAM running on the host computer
Cross-platform solution: FabCAM runs on Windows, Mac and PC host computers
FabCAM provides a fully-rendered 3D view of your G-Code model and allows complete manual and automated control of your CNC machine.
Concept to object:
With the winning combination of FabCAM and MeshCAM your creative production line has become so much easier. Use your favorite design tool to export your CAD file into MeshCAM, then output your MeshCAM toolpaths in G-Code to FabCAM for rendering on your MyDIYCNC Desktop CNC Machine. Whatever design application you use, whether it be SketchUp, Solidworks, Alibre, Blender, or another it's never been easier to capture and render your creations on a desktop.
The immensely-versatile MyDIYCNC Desktop CNC Machines are used in over 45 countries across the globe in many exciting applications, such as
- Rapid prototyping
- Parts manufacturing
- Jewelry making
- Injection mold making
- Printed circuit board milling
- Architectural model making
- Museum display rendering
- Lithopane making
- Automated sculpture
- Model railroad, boat and aircraft making
- Medal and coin milling
- Wax model making for metal molds
- Small/custom arms parts manufacturing
- Watch making
- Sign and decal making
- Enclosure and control panel milling
- Robotic vehicle and UAV chassis milling

Yes, we make this easy with our MyDIYCNC USB Solution. Just install the FabCam software along with the needed drivers, plug the USB solution into the electronics then connect the USB to your computer. If it is a Desktop PC or Laptop, you can use your MyDIYCNC machine with ease.
Yes, it is always a MUST! Any sort of prolonged exposure from the laser to your eyes may possibly cause damage. That is why when you order yourself a laser kit from us, we always provide a pair of protective safety glasses.
YES! We are always delighted to help our customers with most anything. The greatest joy we receive is when our customers have the most success with their own MyDIYCNC machine. From start to....... well I guess there is never a finish to how far we are willing to go to help you out. If it is your account, machine, software, or anything else, we are always here to get you on your feet and running.
We want you to feel secure and confident when you purchase one of our MyDIYCNC machines. That is why we use PayPal, it is secure for both the buyer and the seller. If you would like to know more about how PayPal works, please visit their website and become informed with their procedures and policy's.
At some point, everyone is a beginner. We designed this machine to be easy as possible to operate. From building the machine from a kit to the operation of a fully built model, it should be as easy as 123. Like everything, there is a bit of learning involved, but that is why we provide detailed instructions and pictures about the machine and operating it. We also have produced numerous tutorials in the form of Instructables that can get you going on learning how to use your new MyDIYCNC Machine.
