Some of our most dedicated CNC users are luthiers-guitar, mandolin and violin makers-or woodworkers with limited shop space who don't need or even want a full-sized bed on their CNC machines. That's why we've brought in the CNC Shark SlimLine, featuring all of the digital precision of our other machines, but with a 18'' x 48'' bed that is tailored for small shops and smaller scale work like luthiery. Create graceful carvings, corbels and signs. Make your own arch-top guitars, customized electric guitar bodies complete with cut-outs for pickups and electronics, as well as precisely arched tops and plates for mandolins and violins. You can even integrate ornate carvings into your electric guitars. The creative potential of the SlimLine is virtually limitless.

Cut3D is a dedicated toolpath engine for CNC machining 3D models that have been designed using a 3D CAD or Graphics design product such as AutoCAD, Rhino3D, 3D Studio etc. or scanned using a laser or touch probe device. Cut3D's exceptionally easy-to-use ''wizard'' interface leads you step-by-step through the process of loading a model, setting the size, interactively placing tabs to hold the job in place, calculating single-, double- or four-sided roughing and finishing toolpaths, previewing the results and finally saving the CNC code to run on your machine. It is a great solution for cutting 3D on your CNC if you do not require Aspire’s modeling and layout tools. Cut3D can also be used with Cut2D or VCarve Pro, to combine 3D with 2D or 2.5D toolpaths. 3D Models that are too large or thick to machine because of gantry height, cutter length or limited material thickness can be 'Sliced' into separate pieces. Each slice can then be machined and the complete job assembled. Cut3D includes powerful import filters that work with most of the industry standard mesh file formats. 3D CAD and Graphics Design software packages will typically include standard options for saving 3D models in at least one of the file formats supported by Cut3D. The commonly used design software products are: Rhino3D3D StudioAutoCADBobcadProEngineerSolid WorksSolidEdgeSilo The internet is a very useful source for 3D models with many web sites offering 3D clipart pieces. Many of these also offer Free models that can be used to test whether they work with Cut3D.
Rigidity is a key requirement to ensure accuracy when machining parts on your CNC machine, and this stand more than meets that requirement. Built from heavy, thick-walled square tubing, and held together with sturdy bolts, it resists vibration and deflection like no other. The included heavy-duty casters make it easy to roll across your shop, while adjustable leveling feet ensure stability and a level surface. It even includes a shelf to keep your controller safe and easily accessible. Heavy-duty casters for portabilityAdjustable feet provide stability and a level work surfaceShelf provides space for your controller
