From model builder to electronics enthusiast to maker, with the STEPCRAFT CNC Systems hobbyists can give free rein to their creativity.
Do not limit your creativity any longer! No matter if fine drillings, clear cuts or complex workpieces - STEPCRAFT CNC Systems open up a whole new range of processing possibilities that would manually be impossible for hobby creators. Drilling hundreds of holes into a brass sheet of 0.15 mm strength for the seats of the HADAG ferry in scale 1:25 and with a drill bit of 0.35 mm is undoubtely among them.
In The CAD, CAM & CNC Workbook you learn everything you need to know in order to produce your first workpiece! A short introduction into the emergence of CNC technology is followed by plenty of knowledge regarding the basic functions of a CAD / CAM program. With Autodesk‘s Fusion 360TM we are using a powerful tool that fascinates beginners and pros alike.
The intuitive interface facilitates the first steps and allows for a quick orientation. Afterwards we explain the main functions of a machine control software with the help of UCCNC.
Each chapter includes a theory section followed by the practical application of the recently gained knowledge in which a chassis of a model car is firstly being drawn before it is finally produced on a CNC System.
Our customers use their STEPCRAFT CNC Systems for the most different purposes. While Markus Frey regularly astonishes the crowd with his model aircrafts in scale 1:2, Torsten Schoofs employs his STEPCRAFT for the production of circuit boards. This way, he is not exposed to the chemicals that would need to be used for etching. He can manufacture the 80 circuit boards that he requires for his domestic bus system in a precise and accurate manner comfortably at home and can install them directly.
Look over the shoulder of our customers while they realize their fascinating projects and read about how and for which purpose they use their STEPCRAFT CNC Machines.
Thanks to the numerous available tools you can process different materials with the STEPCRAFT CNC Routers. Among these are plywoods, laminates, EPP, ABS, PLAS, PE, PVC, Styropor®, Lexan®, Plexiglas®, carbon fibers, brass, aluminum and many more.
