So I am well on my journey to becoming a youtuber and needed some ideas. So I tried to pay someone from fiverr to write me a script for a top 10 list. I kept it simpler and got a top 5 list for CNC machines and well here is what they delivered.



Top 5 CNC woodcarving machines


Hi guys! And welcome back to my channel Practice makes perfect. In today’s video, I’ll be telling you about the top 5 CNC woodcarving machines. So without making you guys wait any longer let’s begin.

5.SainSmart Genmitsu CNC Router Machine 3018-PROVer with GRBL Offline Control, Limit Switches & Emergency-Stop, XYZ Working Area 300 x 180 x 45mm:

Starting off at number 5 we have the SainSmart Genmitsu CNC Router Machine 3018-PROVer. One of the wonderful things about this router is that the router is pre-assembled. This allows the machine to be running in 15 minutes instead of assembling the router from scratch for over 2 hours. The machine is built on the open-source Arduino platform and utilizes the open-source GRBL for reading G-code and motion control. The 3018-PROVer gives the machine a premium look and the 5 mm acrylic baffles present their block the flying pieces of wood or any other material that is being cut. It also had a red button to stop it in its track if something happens to go wrong.

4.BobsCNC Evolution 3 CNC Router Kit with the Router Included (16″ x 18″ cutting area and 3.3″ Z travel):

The BobCNC Evolution used to be the best woodcarving machine in the game until the company tried to modify it and then it wasn’t the best anymore. The BobCNC Evolution 3 has already gotten several 5 stars on Amazon and it is made up of laser-cut wood. The machine is a good choice because of its amazing accuracy and decent workspace that comes with the kit. However, make sure to take note of the moderately technical assembly process because if you can’t then nor the machine and nor you will be able to achieve what you were looking for.

3.CNC Router Machine 4040-XE, 300W Spindle 3-Axis Engraving Milling Machine for Wood, Metal, and Acrylic:

Now the 4040-XE CNC Router is one of the best because it uses a 300W spindle and NEMA23 stepper motors. The spindle speed range is 0-10000 with a maximum moving speed of 2000mm/min. It has a design box that integrates the control board, power supply, emergency stop, and wires. This makes it easy for operation. The machine has a large engravable area of 15.75” x 15.75” x 2.56 that makes it capable of handling large and small materials.

2.Upgrade Version 2 in 1 3000mW Engraver CNC 3018 Pro GRBL Control DIY Mini CNC Machine, 3 Axis Wood Router Engraver with Offline Controller:

The Upgrade Version 2 gets the second spot on this list because of how budget-friendly it is. The machine is designed for an absolute beginner, and a great tool to start learning CNC. It has many features such as an Integrated Driver Chip, Fixed Heat Sink, External Fan, and a Sturdy Casing that help to extend the life of the control board. The CNC 3018-PRO with 3000mW Module is a modified version of 3018. This machine is made up of strong material and is hard to damage. The effective engraving area of the machine is 180 x 45 mm.

1.BobsCNC Evolution 4 CNC Router Kit with the Router Included (24″ x 24″ cutting area and 3.3″ of Z travel):

And finally, at number one we have the BobsCNC Evolution 4. This machine is a beast and without a doubt the best for woodcarving. It has an unconventional design with a DIY kit that is made from a birchwood frame. This reduces the limitations of the wood carving machine. The E4 router comes along with the Makita RT071c Router and Arduino-based microprocessor that needs a connection with a computer and that connection can be obtained simply by a USB connection. The machine has a 24-inch by 24-inch by 3-inch cutting area and a small 30-inch by 38-inch by 19-inch footprint. This means that it is perfect for novices and beginners and it won’t take too much workspace either.
