The YoraHome CNC Router 3018-Pro, also called "Yora 3018" is the best DIY CNC router in the market today.
This machine can be used to cut anything from wood to acrylic, and working with it gives you an in-depth look at how CNC machines work on a mechanical level.
So, if you want to get started with CNC engraving or milling, the Yora 3018 is a great place to start!
Optimized for accuracy and ease of use, this CNC carving machine has an open working area of 30x18cm (12x7") that makes it easy to lay down pieces of material.
The effective engraving depth of the Yora 3018 is up to 4.5 cm (1.8").
If you want more space, you can add our expansion kit to the machine. It will allow you to convert your 3018 to a 30x36 cm (12x14") working area.
Or, you can simply grab our all-in-one Mandrill CNC Router 3036 that comes with a 30x36 cm working area, 300W spindle and more features.
Boasting a rigid phenolic body with a solid aluminum inner structure, the YoraHome CNC Router 3018-Pro gives you a premium look and feel for your machine.
The spindle motor is what drives the carving process, as its speed and power determine what materials can be cut.
The YoraHome CNC Router 3018-Pro uses a powerful spindle motor with an ER11-style chuck to maximize the performance of your carving bits. We recommend our YoraHome Essential Bits for optimal results.
Yes! You can also use your Yora 3018 to laser engrave. You just need to replace your spindle motor by a laser module and you are good to go.
We offer 4 types of laser power: 3.5W, 5.5W, 15W and 40W. The 15W and 40W are the most versatile.
The Yora 3018 control board runs on Arduino which a a very reliable and popular open source program.
It now includes a cooling fan to dissipate the heat and maintain the performance during the whole carving process.
To operate the YoraHome CNC Router 3018-Pro, you first need a computer. Then, a software that can communicate directly with the control board of the machine.
We recommend Easel which is a web-based CNC software platform that allows you to design and carve from a single, simple program. It is free, easy to use and compatible with your Windows, Mac or Linux computer.
We recommend the LaserGrbl software for Windows users which is free to use, and also LightBurn software which comes with a 30-day trial (for PC, Mac and Linux).
These easy-to-use software packages will allow you to import your artwork (PNG, JPG, GIF, BMP, etc.), edit it, apply settings like laser power, speed, number of passes, brightness, contrast, and much more.
With the YoraHome 3018-Pro Carving Machine, you can cut materials like wood, acrylic, plexiglass, PCB and soft aluminium.
For the spindle speed and power of this machine, we recommend not to engrave anything harder than brass or aluminum 6061. Anything harder can result in the motor burning out or some parts breaking.
You can laser engrave on almost anything using the YoraHome 3018 laser module kit: paper, wood, rubber, leather, slate, food, etc.
You can't engrave transparent materials and metals. However, by using our 15W or 40W laser combined with non transparent coating like vinyl or black paint, our customers have successfully been able to engrave on glass, anodized aluminium and coated stainless steel.
If you want to explore the amazing world of carving and laser engraving, or if you want to start a new business, grab the YoraHome CNC Router 3018-Pro today. You will make more money while having fun!
Our Facebook group dedicated to supporting and collaborating with YoraHome CNC users has rapidly grown to more than 5K members. Customers worldwide come to learn, share their unique projects, and provide immense value to new users. It is the best and most supportive group in the CNC industry today.
We also have a CNC forum to organize better our topics discussions which is a platform outside Facebook to connect freely with other CNC users.
And last but not least, our Buddy program, where you can find a local maker who owns the same YoraHome machine you're looking at, can answer your questions and give you real hands-on with the technology.
