[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_single_image media=”48695″ media_width_percent=”90″ alignment=”center”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]A year or so ago we managed to import a 1200 x 1200 3 axes?Chinese built?CNC router into Australia. Obviously, you get what you pay for, this beast came in at under $7k landed. However, the build quality has been pretty good with only minor issues. But these have not affected the machine’s output at all. If we were to go again with a router of this size, I think we would have to go a full sheet size (2400 x 1200). The additional charges/costs would not be too much greater, but having the flexibility to put a full sheet down could save some time. I guess it just comes down to what your intended use is and how large the end product is.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_height_percent=”0″ override_padding=”yes” h_padding=”2″ top_padding=”2″ bottom_padding=”2″ overlay_alpha=”50″ gutter_size=”3″ shift_y=”0″][vc_column][vc_separator sep_color=”color-iopl”][vc_custom_heading heading_semantic=”h4″ text_size=”h4″]JX-1212?Specs[/vc_custom_heading][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][uncode_list larger=”yes” icon=”fa fa-code-outline” icon_color=”color-iopl”]

To be brutally honest it is not the most user-friendly interface. However, it is usable and after a bit of manual flicking, you will understand what the controls are. You can find more details about the RichAuto DSP here:?http://www.richauto.com.cn/en/product_view.aspx?id=53

On the software side of things, I?use Aspires Vetric CAM software to generate my tool-paths and convert to a format the CNC/DSP can understand. So a complete project flow?might?involve designing the 2D part in solid works, then import the DXF into Aspire to create the tool-paths. From here I export the tool-path to a USB drive and bring it up on the DSP controller.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator sep_color=”color-iopl”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
