Ok... Had enough 3D printing news?
Then how about a $999 CNC Cube?

Rather than pledge money to an as yet unrealised piece of prototype equipment with an unspecified final pricetag, wouldn't it make more sense to purchase either a Cameron or a Sherline system that is already capable of performing the level of machine work specified and has a verifiable track record?

I would pass on this one for now. It has a pretty small working area. The motor looks to be on the small side also.

Yes, the working area is very tiny. The arrangement of the axis is good, better as a portal CNC-Milling.

The resolution with 0,001" isn't high, but more interesting is the repetition accuracy. And by the way 0,001in are 0,0254 mm not 0,01mm! - we send worldwide :wink:
