Take large format CNC routing out of the factory and into your workshop with SmartBench V1.1 and ShapeCutter our new console based cutting app.
SmartBench now comes with our revolutionary, first generation cutting app, allowing you to produce shapes directly from the touch screen console.
Not only that, our walk-through job wizard makes getting started in CNC a “walk in the park”.
We’ve kept all the groundbreaking features of SmartBench V1, and added adjustable feet to facilitate work on uneven surfaces.
Now you can own a large format CNC at an affordable price with a space friendly footprint.
Our 230v precision version comes complete with the following
Electronic speed control

In order to get cutting, you’ll need to use your own CAD/CAM software to design and create your projects. We recommend you use Autodesk's Fusion 360 to model and CAM process your files. Fusion is free to makers, education and small businesses.
Other G Code generating CAD/CAM packages can be used.
