I’ve been called far worse.
@doug gWizard is great for hobby size cnc and larger. I just hope that it can handle something like the Snapmaker CNC head on the lighter side.
I do wonder if anyone has any info on the horsepower rating or wattage rating of the CNC motor.
Seeing as how the power brick puts out 120 watts, maximum, that gives me a range to start working with. My best guess at this point is somewhere between a 1/12th and 1/10th horsepower motor. That may not sound like much compared to my 1.5 horsepower CNC machine, but my CNC machine goes up to 5100 RPM. This motor goes up to 19000 RPM and for small chips / light engraving work RPMs is a key component. We don’t have the rigidity or the ability to control tool runout very well which can both be critical for micro-bits, but that doesn’t mean the idea is dead in the water. It will be a while before I get a chance to play with cutting metal on this. For now, I’m very pleased with the 3d printing results so far and have ordered some new materials to play with. I just have an eye towards the future and I would really like to be able to engave in something soft like aluminum.
