Low cost 5 Axis CNC machining (and more) – 5AXISMAKER

| September 22, 2014

A new Kickstarter project launched today for the 5AXISMAKER multi-fabricator.  What is a 5 axis CNC you say?  It’s basically the holy grail of CNC machining.  The 5 axis CNC machine can access 5 side of the part being machined which means most parts can be produced in one setup with no need to re-position the work-piece and potentiality introduce error to the parts measurements. The 5AXISMAKER is more than a 5 axis CNC though.  They have a touch prob for measuring objects, a hot wire for cutting Styrofoam, a 3d printer head for 3d printing and a bracket for additional tools.  They also mention a waterjet head.  It’s a pretty sweet setup if you ask me.  CNC is near and dear to my heart but I won’t be able to join in this journey at the entry  level $7350 USD price.  I wish them much success as it looks like a great project.  Hit the links for the Kickstarter page and videos.
