What is Maslow CNC?

Maslow CNC is a full size 4’ x 8’ router machine that can cut projects out of wood, a variety of plastics (e.g. acrylic and HDPE) and other materials.

It is a fully functional CNC router machine. One of the key benefits of Maslow CNC is that it is open source and customizable. See more at maslowcnc.com

 

What can I do with it?

There is no limit about what you can create. Some of the most common products our customers create are signs, trays, toys, guitars, home decoration, games, tables, chairs, and modular furniture in general. You can browse ready-to-cut community projects [here]

With Maslow CNC you are not just limited to make projects that are completed exclusively on the machine. Many users use it to mill parts/fixtures for larger projects, like kayaks, rv’s, or even houses. You can also cut out segments that are later assembled to make the final product.

 

Why are higher priced kits from different providers?

Don’t get misled by marketing techniques offering kits with added bonuses that are free resources from internet or are including parts that you can make yourself with the sole purpose of inflating the price.

Our full kit is the most economical, yet it’s made with the best hardware. It is the newest version and well proven system that is being sold by the thousands worldwide, it also includes the latest and most powerful Arduino shield v1.4 made in USA ($75 value), ring/carriages made from high carbon steel, z-axis control and more...

Our vision is to make large cnc technology affordable to everyone, we believe in the Maker Movement and see projects like Maslow cnc as an opportunity for people to learn and get into technologies that would otherwise be inaccessible. The kit's original price from Bar Smith (kit creator) was $350 without z-axis control or $410 with z-axis control plus $12.50 shipping in USA.

We are proud to be able to lower the original price while keeping the same suppliers as Bar did and also include much needed electronics upgrade.

Do your research, compare and then decide what’s best for you :)

We are shipping our kits from USA, for domestic mail it takes 1 to 5 days to deliver, or 6 to 10 days to deliver worldwide.
