FAQ

What types of materials can the CNC cut? + -

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.

What router do you recommend? + -

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

What are the computer requirements? + -

We recommend: Windows 7 or newer, Mac OS Version 10 or newer and any Linux OS.

CPU Requirements:

x86 or ARM64 processor
1 GB RAM
2GB RAM

If I am building my own frame, would you recommend waiting until the order ships before starting work on the frame and sled? Or am I safe to move forward based on the frame build instructions? + -

You’re absolutely safe to get started. We recommend this as it makes the kit more “plug and play” once it arrives.

What tools do I need to assemble my kit? + -

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.

How do you adjust the router depth in Ground Control? + -

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.

How can I generate GCode? + -

Makercam.com is a good tool to generate GCode. You can watch our MakerCam basics series and Easel for Maslow our YouTube channel.
