The Snapmaker 2.0 Rotary Module is a device that adds a 4th axis to your Snapmaker, making it an exceedingly mighty desktop CNC machining powerhouse. By adding a 4-axis, the rotary module enables your Snapmaker to rotary CNC carve and laser. The Snapmaker Rotary module excels at making three-dimensional artworks such as desktop miniatures and small-sized sculptures. The rotary module can also accomplish a level of detail and craftsmanship that no other 3D printing technologies can without under extrusion, layer shifting, stringing, or supports of FDM or SLA. . Below are some reasons why you need a Snapmaker rotary module.
It adds magnificent work to your collection. The Snapmaker 2.0 rotary module makes impressive objects such as a candle holder, a Siberian tiger, a king’s bust and many more. The object created by the module adds exquisite work to your collection. It can also attract people who love the artwork, adding value to your unique projects. You will be in a position to sell out the objects quickly. The objects can also be used for house decorations, thereby taking your living premises to another level with art and designs.
Detailed machining. The control of the rotary module ranges from 0.2,1, and 5 degrees rotation and a 360 degrees continuous rotation with a maximum speed of 45 degrees per second. These can be monitored on the Touchscreen, giving the user precise machining control at their fingertips.
Touchscreen features. The feature enables the user to have a smooth experience by interacting effortlessly with the rotary carvings. You can also preset the CNC bits, set the origins and the z-offsets and install materials easily. Additionally, you can choose an assist mode for a more manageable process or a manual mode with more flexible controls. Moreover, the rotary module has a base plate with holes on both sides for the user to install the headstock and tailstock at different locations according to how preferred.
Multi-material support. The rotary module supports wood, tooling boards, plastic, bamboo, fabric, and many more.
The rotary module has a 3-jaw chuck that rotates with a minimum angle of 0.1 degrees. This means you can create designs on uneven surfaces that are irregular. With the tailstock, the 3-jaw chuck can support objects up to 170mm in length and 68 mm radius or 225mm length* 68mm radius without the tailstock.
Safety during operation. You can also combine the rotary module with the Snapmaker emergency stop button providing additional protection for laser engraving and CNC routers. The button works by pressing it once, and the whole process stops. The emergency stop button can be practically installed where it matters most, allowing access when something goes awry. This prevents further harm to your work, and you will have peace of mind throughout the process. The stop button connects to the machine’s main controller, sending stop signals to the controller at your command. It also has a glowing status in green and red colours. The red colour is for activation, green is for standby, and the combination is for alternating. With all these, you will be sure of your safety.
It uses Snapmaker Luban, free CAD/CAM software, to create designs for the 4-axis rotary module. The software has also been designed to hollow objects from STL files and features four-axis linkage supports, allowing the axes to move simultaneously for full control purposes.
Rotary carving is known for having a learning curve and is not as user-friendly to newcomers. That’s why we took a step further to smoothen your transition from 3-axis to 4-axis machining.
Snapmaker 2.0 rotary module is a terrific option for people who love creating unique designs, something different that adds value to their desktop. Make wise decisions as you consider getting a printing machine.
