Makers and hobbyists looking for a CNC milling machine mighty interested in a new system called the 5AXISMAKER which has been created by 5AxisWorks based in London and is equipped as you might have guessed by the name, with a 5 axis milling head.
The 5AXISMAKER has been designed to be an affordable desktop 5 axis multi-fabricating machine that can be used to build projects with ease. Watch the video below to learn more about this innovative new CNC manufacturing system and it features that stand it apart from other designs.
The 5AXISMAKER project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking for your help to raise £50,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production. Its creators explain a little more :
“We felt limited by typical desktop machines which either use only plastic or severely limited by geometry they can produce or are too small to make useful prototypes.
We’ve designed a machine that combines multi- fabrication methods: 5axis milling being one of them. 5AXISMAKER is a machine versatile enough to fabricate most advanced design prototypes in readily available material while on your desktop right next to you.
We created 5 axis platform that gives you an unprecedented versatility compared to 3axis platforms of readily available 3d printers and desktop cnc mills. It lets the tool work on details of the model that other machines could not reach. 5AXISMAKER comfortably sits on your desk and has a large fabrication volume for its size.”
So if you think 5AXISMAKER is something your making and production could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help 5AXISMAKER become a reality, with systems stating at $4,499.
