Cutting Steel on the Rabbit Mill v2.0

We would like to show you the rigidity of the new Rabbit Mill v2.0 desktop CNC router so we tested it on steel. Of course Rabbit Mill, as any desktop CNC, is designed to cut/mill materials softer than steel, like aluminum and brass, but we would like to show you its limits so we made the following video.

In this video we cut a hole on the steel protection caps of the bench grinder, we have in our lab, in order to attach a vacuum cleaner and make our environment cleaner.

The Process...

2.5D Machining is for Everyone !

What's the easiest way to... CNC something ?

We had a lot of people asking about how can someone with little or none experience in 3D design can create something using a CNC machine?
The answer to that question is a procedure called 2.5D machining.

“In machining, 2.5D refers to a surface which is a projection of a plane into 3rd dimension – although the object is technically 3-dimensional, there are no overhanging elements possible. 2.5D objects are often greatly preferred for machining, as it is easy to generate G-code... Read More

Rabbit Mill v2 Announced !

On Oct 18 2015 we launched an Indiegogo campaign to introduce our first product, the Rabbit Mill, to the global makers community and to raise funds so we can follow our dream and keep building Plug & Play Desktop CNC machines.

Today three full months have passed. Three months full of hard work and experiments on designs and materials. Three months of work with only one goal, the goal to design a new product that matches our three core values (Precision, Durability, Excellence), which is also portable, good looking and... well… it is blue...

Today and after a... Read More

Polyacetal VS Bronze Nuts

At SourceRabbit we love the Leadscrew and nuts method for transferring rotational motion into linear motion. It is a very simple and effective method thus makes it a strong candidate for use in linear travel CNC applications.

So far in our machines we use steel Trapezoidal Leadscrews with 2mm pitch. On our tests we find these leadscrews very good and accurate and we will continue using them in our products in the future but... because there is always a room for improvement we decided to improve the quality of our linear motion systems by building our own leadscrew nuts...
