The Carve King is the new standard in affordable CNC machines. Its thoughtful design elements allow it to outperform the competition at a lower price.
This bundle includes the Carve King kit, DeWalt DWP611 1.25 horsepower router, our solid aluminum router mount, one 1/4″ carbide end mill, and basic clamps. This is all the hardware you need to get going. The vise shown on the table is not included.
The software you need is free. Autodesk offers all hobbyists a free license (not a trial) for design software called Fusion 360. Universal G Code Sender is a free program that is used to control the machine.
