Carba-Tec is proud to release the CNC Shark to the Australian market. This unit has already been released in the US market and has gotten rave reviews and fantastic feedback. They appeal to the informed CNC user and the entry level hobby user alike. This machine is portable and offers consistent results and repeatability. Designed for routing all types of wood, engraving or plastics and it can even etch and cut tile. With some adaptation, the CNC Shark can be used to cut non-ferrous metals.
The CNC Shark is by far the best value complete CNC system available. This impressive machine offers power, speed, accuracy and ease of use. The manufacturer offers a technical support system to help you with any questions regarding use of the software and hardware. The CNC Shark embodies high quality design and its own parts are CNC produced to ensure maximum accuracy. Made of steel, aluminium and high-density polyethylene - its robust but light and durable.
Shipped complete and require minimal assembly. They're basically 'plug and play'. Vectric's VCarve Pro V 6.0 design software is included with both models. This provides an easy to use point-and-click method of designing signs, patterns and complex repetitive cut jobs. You can also set up design work in programs like Corel Draw or Adobe Illustrator, in which you can export or import direct to VCarve Pro for cut job assignment and batch processing. VCarve Pro then creates the machine coding (G-Code) required by the device driver interface (you can download this for free) - and this runs the unit. The CNC Shark and CNC Shark Pro driver interface can also process files exported from other well-recognised programs such as Photo Carve, 3D Cut, BobCad, BobART, BobNestCad, Mach 3 and Lazy Cam. They are powered by an industrial quality 550W Bosch Blue GMR-1 Router (included) and both units are supplied with hardware, transformer, controller, software, clamps, USB cable, controller cables and router bit. All you need is a Appliance plug, PC or laptop, a USB port, some timber and an imagination. Get creative...the high-tech way!
