Home carbon fiber milling CNC machine.

Milling carbon fiber (3X speed) (2 min 1 sec)

I have a need to cut carbon parts for my airplane models and decided to create CNC capable to do carbon cutting.

Requirements for the machine:
  • Total price of components less than $300.
  • Weight less than 15 kg (30 pounds).
  • Should cut A4 size carbon sheet with precision about 0.1 mm.
  • Should be portable and environment friendly - designed to do cutting and to be stored in the apartment living room,

Finally I found cheap CNC ($125-$225) on banggood and re-designed it:

Major improvements:
  • 500 Watts spindle ($50-$80).
  • Vacuum cleaner hose attached($10).
  • Bridge Cable Chain($10).
  • LED work zone light.($10)
  • New couplings and bearings($10-$20).

The articles about the CNC are written in Russian but Google does good translation:
(sometimes the translation takes time , wait after clicking the link ...)
