About Carbon CNC

The main goal with this project was to create a high performance CNC machine that would be affordable, fully capable of milling aluminum with high speed and accuracy, in a platform that could easily fit in a home workshop, yet not so small as to limit its usefulness. Flexibility to mount any tool, and room for accessories and upgrades were also goals of the design.

The early focus has been on defining requirements and optimizing the design to achieve those requirements. The cost is minimized by performing detailed engineering analysis that enables a simple design using components that will work together to meet the design goals.
