CAD Computer Aided Design/Drawing is the use of computer systems to aid in the creation, modification, analysis, or of a design.
CAM Computer Aided Manufacturing Is the use of software to control machine tools and related ones in the manufacturing of workpieces
CNC Computer Numerical Control is the automated Motion controlled of machining tools by means of a computer.

CAD:  inkscape Drawing program
----Inkscape is professional quality vector graphics software
----which runs on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows desktop computers.
ThisVideoMaker saves drawing in inkscape to SVG file = scalable vector graphics
if you have a minute ;-)
GREAT Inkscape video tutorial by Derek Banas =>

Online CAM: Online InBrowser Flash Plugin CAM program
ThisVideoMaker imports inkscape SVG file in makercam translates SVG to G-Code wich is used by Mach steppermotor controller software
G-code (also RS-274), which has many variants, is the common name for the most widely used numerical control (NC) programming language
G-code is a programming language that instructs machines what to do, how to move

CNC:  cnc usb controller

Music: Electro-Light - Symbolism [NCS Release]

Comment ForumManager: Looks like a verry nice machine!!! verry well made video with a nice unboxing music ;-)

i do not understand at 2:42 your positioning of the washers on the 4th rotating axis between the frame and mount?, makes it wobbly, vibrating ;-)

Product Description

Friendly reminder:

The engraver will come with MACH3 software(Free Version
If you followed the installation tips offered by us, it works like full version.)

installation tips:

The software perform better on the 32bites system computer.
Please close the firewall and antivirus software on the computer before DOWNLOADING AND installing the software.(This is very important)
Otherwise, the antivirus will regard the cnc software as virus and stop the installation.


Please don't update the software when installed, then it will not need the license Numbers.

Control box parameters:

Operating Voltage: AC220V

Control unit: 2.5A stepping motor driver plus adjustable spindle speed controller

Command code: G code

Acceptable software: Mach3, EMC2

Protection: Emergency stop button


Simple operation and installation

More steady and strong equiped with aluminum alloy frame materials

Can be controlled by computer

Mach 3 software is simple and intellgent

Can control the engraving more precise

Emergency stop button enhance security

Large 3D engraving in soft wood, MDF board, native wood, PVC, Acrylic we suggest use one or two spiral flute ball bits.

Can engraving much more materails by spiral flute bits, such as metal, steel, MDF board, solid wood, composite board plywood, stone.

Spindle motor knob is useful for small positioning adjustment, with steady and strong support structure.

Cover plates reducing pollution for the screws and shafts.

The reinforced and thickened machine body make transportation absolutely to be safer and longer life time.

The chrome shafts is not easy to deform, suitable for long time use.

Flexible coupling can be used for high torque transmission.

High Precision Stepping motor makes engraving more precise.

How to use:

Please see the English user manual to see how to set up the software and how to use this machine.

1. Assembling and locating the CNC machine on steady desk well.

2. Make sure that your computer has a on-board parallel port output.

3. Installing a CNC control software and Drive such as the MACH 3 or EMC2 on your computer.

4. Connecting the control box with the CNC machine and you computer.

5. Following our manual or guideline to set uo the software.

6. You can enjoy making you dream with using our CNC machine now.
