CNC 3018 Pro Laser Engraver Reviews
bought it for my garage workshop, as i frequently do engraving on wood and stone. my other machine got old and just wasn't 'cutting' it anymore, so i decided to upgrade to this 3018 pro model. i got myself the 7000mw laser as i thought it would be enough for my projects, and so far i'm satisfied. the machine is sturdy and reliable, i'll give it an a+.
I had a smaller CNC I bought from another company last year but it was flimsy and there were issues with the laser, so I decided to give this one a try. I love how sturdy it is (I wouldn’t worry much if it got accidentally hit by something) and am finally satisfied with the engravings I get.
To begin with, I have always been intrigued by CNC machines but have never touched or assembled one. I am, however, very familiar with 3D printers and the overall mechanics seemed similar. For the price, the CNC 3018 Pro seemed worth trying out to gain exposure to the hobby. I have been absolutely blown away with the quality construction and ease of use! Assembly - assembly was easy; just take your time and watch one of the assembly videos available on YouTube. The included manual is pretty straightforward also. From opening the box to powering on the machine took me about 1 1/2 hours. Build quality - this thing is sturdy! It actually feels like a much more expensive piece of equipment. There are plenty of CNC3018 options out there, but this one seems to have great quality control and really cares about customer experience. Usage - as I mentioned, I have NEVER used a CNC before and within 10 minutes of having the machine assembled I started engraving the test files. Overall this thing is awesome!
