My team has some money to spend and we are looking into purchasing a CNC router. There are a lot of machines that seem okay and within our price range. We are looking in the 5k-10k range. I talked to other teams at districts but it appears that schools either already have a router or have a sponsor who can do the milling for them. Any suggestions on what models are good? We probably only need a 3-axis router but if there is anything else out there please leave a comment.
After doing more research I realized I need to get a relatively larger bed size around 4’ x 3’ or larger. However larger bed sizes seem to cost a lot more. Also, how useful is an a-axis attachment(4th axis) for a 3 axis router?
