Welcome to the CubeSpawn Project

CubeSpawn is an Open source project to build cost sensitive, high quality, modular manufacturing machines.

Each machine will be built into a standard module at one of four sizes: 300mm (about 1 foot) 600mm, 1.2 meter and 2.4 meter.

The small sizes will focus on capability and affordability, the trade-off being size (smaller build envelopes) the machines in the 600mm range are comparable in size to the existing maker/hacker built CNC’s and 3D printers, but we plan to offer higher end servo drives and advanced motion control, to allow¬†higher performance designs in addition to stepper based models.

Larger machines will have professional capabilities, but at costs comparable to commercial machines. (size DOES cost!)

This lets anyone choose a machine that matches their needs and application in a continuum from inexpensive to high performance, and as much as possible, to upgrade their machines in-place, adding capabilities to an existing system rather than replacing the machines outright.
