Roland micro-CNC - SLP~$1000

Postby Richard-B » Thu Feb 02, 2012 6:50 pm


Roland just entered the CNC hobbyist market with a SLP ~$1000 all-in-one desktop CNC/cutter machine.

Currently intended to cut foam, wax, wood and plastic...
but I would think that aluminum and brass would be the next step.

The opportunities for TT-scale desktop fabrication just keep getting better!

Wow! They're not kidding about the "micro" part, the table size is only about 2-3/16" x 3-3/8".

It's all about detail size and surface finish. If it'll do what's needed, I'd buy one. It won't do metal though which is a bummer.

The working area is only 86 x 55 x 26mm, so we can't make a wagon...
