Product Details

The Routakit SD is our baseline machine offering excellent performance in its class for cutting wood, plastic, and aluminum. Featuring 0.19in thick plates for high rigidity and strength, a stiff 4080 extrusion as the gantry, 100mm/4in of clearance, and a 250mm/10in tall industrial grade ball screw for the z-axis (4 inches of travel) .

The starterkit is a complete* out of the box experience including everything you need to get started on your CNC projects! (* Does not include MDF wasteboard due to high shipping cost. We recommend sourcing this from your local hardware store.)

Current Lead Time: ~3 weeks from date of order

Need even more rigidity? Consider adding our SDX upgrade package to strengthen up the frame and carriage assembly via additional extrusions on the X and Y axis, additional v-wheels, and additional spacers/hardware. Great for handling the extra power and forces associated with our optional 1.5kw spindle upgrade for cutting into harder material deeper and faster.

Do you want to reduce your build time by half? Consider adding in our pre-built x,y,z axis assembly option in which we will expertly assemble the main mechanical parts for you so that you can get to cutting and carving in no time. *May add 3 to 4 additional days to lead time.
