VCarve Desktop provides a powerful, intuitive CNC software solution that is oriented toward users machining parts smaller than 24'' x 24'', or hobbyists with lighter-duty machines. The software includes tools for 2D design and calculation of 2D and 2.5D toolpaths, along with the ability to import and toolpath a single 3D model (STL, OBJ etc.). There is also support to import multiple Vectric Clip Art 3D models (V3M) to create 3D assemblies. The software can import 2D designs from other programs but also provides a full set of drawing and editing tools. The toolpath options cover all typical 2D routing operations such as Profiling, Pocketing, Auto-Inlays and Drilling as well as 2.5D strategies such as V-Carving, Prism carving, Fluting and even a decorative Texturing strategy. For 3D you can Rough and Finish the model and there are options to project 2D and 2.5D toolpaths onto the 3D surface. Each toolpath includes appropriate options to customize the settings and provide a high level of control for different types of operation. In addition, all toolpaths can be previewed to show just how the part will look when it is actually cut, this allows instant feedback to allow toolpaths to be further optimized. VCarve includes the functionality demanded for complex work while remaining incredibly easy to use and affordably priced. The software is used by cabinet makers, wood workers, sign makers, prop makers, plastic fabricators, hobbyists and in many other applications. NOTE: VCarve V8 software is also available in a "V8 Pro'' version (58150, sold separately), which is oriented more toward professionals or woodworkers who machine parts larger than 24'' x 24''.

Create signs and table tops with decorative edging in almost half the time with this unique 5-Piece CNC Router Bit Set from Rockler. The set includes three innovative dual-purpose bits, which simultaneously cut your parts to size and apply one of three edge profiles: 1/2-inch cove, 45° chamfer or 1/2-inch roundover. There's no need to remove the parts to machine them again on a traditional router table. Also included in the set are two signmaking bits - a 60° V-groove bit, and a flattened round nose bit-perfect for routing letters or applying other decorative effects, such as scrolling and borders. All five CNC bits come packaged in an attractive wooden case with designated spots for each bit. 1/2-inch shanks. Cuts parts to correct dimension and shape, and applies an edge profile - all in one shot! No need for a bearing guide means no gummed up bearings, and no marks on the edge of your work piece from bearings that don't spin well. All five CNC router bits feature 1/2-inch shanks for stability, and 2 carbide flutes fora long cutting life.Note: For best results and longer tool life we recommend slowing the feed rate while making several passes.
Your shop may look clean, but how clean is the air? The PM1200 Air Filtration System traps up to 99% of all 5-micron particles and 85% of all 1-micron particles for a healthier work environment. Three blower speeds modify air flow. The unit can be operated either at the cabinet or with the remote transmitter, which uses radio frequency, eliminating the need for line-of-sight operation. The timer has nine settings, allowing continuous operation for up to 9 hours while you're away, and will shut off at the end of that period. The filter guards can be removed and installed without tools, for instant filter access.Features:Two-filter system traps particles as small as 1 micronRemote control operates on radio frequency for wider range of effectivenessTimer has nine settings, for up to nine hours of continuous operationInner filter has fine mesh pockets for high efficiency, can be blown cleanElectrostatic outer filter is disposableDiffusion filter disperses exhausted airFour eye bolts allow suspension from shop ceilingIndicator lights up after 200 hours to remind user to replace filtersThree blower speeds to modify air flowFilter guards install and remove easily without tools for quick access to filtersTwo carry handles for portabilityFully enclosed motor has overload protection for long service life.
The AutoRoute series of CNC machines from Axiom offers advanced features usually found only on machines in industrial environments, but at consumer-friendly prices. The AutoRoute 4 Pro is the most compact of the Pro models, with XYZ travel of 24'' x 24'' x 6'', and a powerful 3HP electro-spindle. A computer need not be attached to the CNC to operate it. Instead, simply transfer your file to the included handheld controller via USB. The RichAuto A11 controller is an easy-to-use, robust controller with nearly a decade of proven results in demanding applications. It is more stable than a PC, and no updates are required. Every Axiom AutoRoute CNC machine also offers precision ball screws, prismatic guides, robust, rigid steel frames, and interlocking aluminum tables. In addition, the integrated MDF spoil boards promise exacting precision, as they can be milled flat for true perpendicularity with the spindle. Whether you're looking to upgrade your entry-level CNC, or you just want to start out with a machine that promises top-quality results and ease of use, you're sure to be pleased with the AutoRoute series from Axiom.
