Frequently asked questions

Our CNC’s can cut sheet goods such as: hardwoods
, plywood
, MDF
, laminate
, hard plastics (acrylic, nylon, uPVC, hard PVC)
, and soft plastics (polycarbonate, polyethylene, soft PVC)
. Some users have been able to cut thin sheet aluminum using proper feed rate and bit selection.

The Maslow kits require a rigid router with z-axis plunge such as the Rigid R22002 (US) or Bosch POF 1200 (EMEA).

We don’t have any recommended computer specs put together, but the Ground Control software runs on Mac, Windows and Linux. There is a great thread on the forum with other users thoughts and opinions that is helpful! 

For the wooden frame build, at minimum you’ll need a screwdriver, saw, pliers, and a C clamp. Having access to power tools like a drill and power saw definitely make the job easier, but aren’t required.

1: On the main screen of ground control (where you see the work surface) click on the Z-Axis button located next to the right down 45* arrow


2: Router bits come in different depths, make sure you are properly mounting the router bit to allow for maximum cut depth.
