Get most of the parts to assemble an X Carve style CNC, following the instructions that can be found on the Inventables website: http://x-carve-instructions.inventables.com
Please note that this is not a Inventables kit: parts in this bundle are not branded, nor do we have any affiliation with the brand, but parts are made according to exact specifications as they are available in open source format, or they have been bought from suppliers. In the open source community, this kit here would be called a “clone”. This kit is particularly interesting for Europeans, as you will not face the otherwise high import VAT and shipping costs. This bundle ships from within Europe, so you will not face extra import costs.
The bundle does contain a controller according to the new style (with emergency stop, with extra connectors and with 1 driver IC per motor, and capable of delivering the full 2.8 amps that each motor can take to produce full torque).
