Welcome to SheetCNC.co.uk – home of the SheetCNC machine.
Build a complete, ready-to-work, full-sheet water-cooled 8′ x 4′ 2.5D/3D CNC machine for under £3400*
Here at SheetCNC.co.uk we’ve designed this large-format CNC machine from scratch. The mechanics of the machine can be built from a kit by any competent DIYer in a weekend. Then simply add a water-cooled spindle and a s/h PC to control it and you’ll have a complete, ready-for-work, large-format water-cooled CNC machine in your own shed. The whole ready-for-work machine – including spindle and controller – can be completed for less than £3400*.
Kit production has now been licensed to PembrokeshireCNC who have sole license to build and sell SheetCNC kits.
To give a flavour of SheetCNC’s capabilities, here’s some video of the Mk3. This clip shows SheetCNC cutting 13mm MDF at very high speed – 5,000mm/minute – using a low-cost 6mm single-fluted cutter. This was also the first outing for the new Tornado vacuum dust collection head which now ships with all Mk3 kits.
The work produced is exceptionally clean, so that the finished item could be taken off SheetCNC’s bed and immediately assembled – just as shown in the video – with no clean-up or other preparation work.
News: The full-size 8’x4′ SheetCNC Mk3 has now been joined by its half-size twin: the 4’x4′ SheetCNC Mk3. The ‘half-size’ bed is – in fact – just over 4′ long which offers the option to cut large parts from full 8’x4′ sheets by registering index pins across the centre of the board. The half-size machine is in all respects identical to the full-size machine, except that the table is 4′ shorter. Ideal for smaller sheds.
We’re confident that our Mk3 is the ultimate budget large-format CNC machine, with a price/performance ratio that knocks the competition out of the arena. So this is going to be our last iteration of SheetCNC for quite some time.
For more videos, please click here for some very old video of SheetCNC Mk1 machining plywood, MDF, aluminium, brass, uPVC and printed-circuit boards. Sorry these videos are so out-of-date – do bear in mind when watching that the Mk1 was a very slow machine. We really will get some Mk3 videos up on the website soon 🙂
