Introducing the CraftCNC!

The CraftCNC is a small CNC machine capable of cutting most Design & Make models and projects using a standard Dremel. It is built entirely from easy-to-source electrical and electronic components, which are housed in a cleverly designed case that is constructed from our free plans.  Our FREE plans include all the files needed to laser-cut acrylic sheet and 3D print all the connectors used to build this very capable desktop CNC machine.

Free CNC self-build plans…  Interested? 

The CraftCNC is for anyone requiring a CNC machine.

Don't have easy access to a CNC machine - why not build your own? Many schools, colleges, and Makerspaces offer access to a laser cutter and a 3D printer. With this in mind, we've designed a CNC machine that can be built only using these tools and then made the plans freely accessible to everyone.
