Hey Gurus,

Has anyone had any experience with CNC3D in Australia?


I was looking at building my own CNC and stumbled across their online store for profile rails and ball screws.

They're based on the Gold Coast.

I noticed they had some CNC kits available for home hobbyist use but I'm not sure if they will work well for nicely milling Aluminium. They do advise it will but at a very low feed rate.

One of their sales reps told me I might be better off holding out for their new Nighthawk CNC range.

apparently they use a rotating nut design rather than a rack and pinion for their full sheet machines.

It looks like a beefed up version of what I was going to build haha.

What do you guys think of a spinning nut design rather than screw?

Here's their blog post
