CNC Mill for Hobby and Model Building

STEPCRAFT D-Series

With the STEPCRAFT CNC mill you can produce workpieces like a pro. Precise, quick and repeatable. Make ideas reality and use your CNC router machine to mill wood or to process plastics, aluminum, carbon or brass. Thanks to many different CNC accessories you can turn your mini CNC from an engraving machine into a CNC laser, 3D printer home, a CNC cutter or a CNC plotter. This way, there are virtually no limits to creativity.

You can use the CNC hobby router as your home CNC machine, in schools and for education or for growing your own home business. If you want to save money, you can choose the diy CNC machine or you can start right away with the ready to run CNC system.

From Mini Milling Machine to CNC Mill

The STEPCRAFT D-Series CNC router machines come in five different sizes offering much space for the most different CNC projects. While the D.300, D.420, D.600 and the stepcraft 840 differ in dimension, the range of function remains the same. This allows for the best value mini CNC machines to be used for pcb milling, craftwork, model building or CNC woodworking.

Multifunction with CNC Tools

From milling and 3D printing to engraving, plotting or CNC cutting – the CNC mill is a multifunction power package. Thanks to a large variety of different CNC tools, the CNC machine small can be converted in no time at all. This allows you to get creative in all possible ways. One machine, a thousand possibilities. Read about the most fascinating CNC projects and get inspired by CNC ideas.


CNC Router Spindle

Use our milling motors to produce precise and accurate CNC workpieces out of a wide variety of materials. With a milling motor you can process wood, plastics, aluminum, carbon or brass. Create ribs, DIY jewelry or bedside lamps.

Visit our shop to find the perfect milling spindleand CNC tooling for your CNC project - from the CNC Router Spindle to the HF Milling Router to the automatic tool changer ATC. Please see the router comparison for more details.

Laser

No more clamping! The CNC laser serves to engrave different materials without contact. Depending on the CNC workpiece material, the laser can even perform smaller cutting works. This allows you to create engraved wooden cutting boards, intricate letterings or miniature art from cardboard.

3D Print Head

With the 3D Printer you can create amazing 3D models from filament. Layer by layer you can 3D print complex designs such as the Eiffel Tower, toys or gears.

OTK-3

The OTK-3 has been constructed for highly precise and quick CNC Cutting of contours and letterings. No matter if leather, cork or foil, the OTK creates sharp and clean cuts. This way, you can make custom T shirts, custom stickers or keyring pendants.

DIY CNC Router vs Ready to Run CNC Machine

When buying a STEPCRAFT D-Series CNC mill you have the choice: Do you want to save time or money? As the CNC hobby routers are available as assembly kit or as ready to run CNC system, the choice is all up to you. But whichever option you choose, your machine will come with a voluntary manufacturer's warranty of three years (private customers).


CNC Machine Kit

Save money with the CNC Router Kit! We supply you with all the necessary CNC router parts safely packaged in a styrofoam core. Together with the EasyBuild assembly manual and video tutorials, the job will take you only a couple of hours. You will get to know your machine inside out. This enables you to easily perform maintenance works and adjustments on your own.

Advantages of a DIY CNC mill:

  • Best value CNC
  • Know every detail of your engraving machine
  • Perform maintenance works on your own
  • Assembling a CNC kit is fun

See our Top 10 Check List on what makes a good CNC construction kit.

Ready to Run CNC System

Unpack and get started. With the Ready-to-Run CNC systems, we take over the assembly of your CNC mill. You will receive your CNC router machine perfectly assembled and aligned. This way, you save the time for assembly and start right away with your CAD CAM CNC projects.

Advantages of a ready-to-run CNC hobby router:

  • Save time
  • Perfectly assembled mini milling machine
  • CNC mill already aligned
  • Connect. Turn on. Start.
