Topic tags/keywords: cnc x-carve xcarve fusion 360

I think I am going to take a plunge on buying a 1000mm X-carve this week. Any advice on where to save money, what items to go ahead and buy with it, and anything I should buy from a 3rd party. I am just trying to keep the price down and get a fully functional machine for the most bang for my buck.

(Also, as a side question. Can you use Fusion 360 to do 3d carves with the X-Carve?)

You may want to Google Fusion 360 3D carving or try this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nO56OwO9xnc.I am not a huge X-carve fan as they are truly a light weight machine but if you are looking to just dip your toes in the water and see if you like it at least you won’t have a fortune tied up in it, just a second mortgage,LOL. Looking at the web site there really are not too many area’s to cut corners as they have already gotten it about as far down as is possible. About the only thing cheaper is an Ebay Chinese 3020 system and I have no idea or any understanding of them. There are other tools to look at that come with software such as Carvewright, there was a fellow on Woodworking.org who had one and did lots of very cool stuff with it. Good luck and sorry the guy that doesn’t know a lot tried to answer your question but I didn’t reply see anyone else stepping up and that irritated me.
