What is a Lead CNC Machine? 

The Lead Version 3 is a super-strong, accurate, and easy-to-assemble CNC machine made using off-the-shelf parts with easily customizable options. It has been designed to accurately cut foams, wood, plastics, and aluminum to 0.05-0.10mm accuracy or better. Functional engineering parts, toys, signs, or anything else that can be imagined, can be made on the Lead CNC Machine.

With the High Z Modification for the LEAD CNC, the Z-Travel is increased to approximately 250mm! This modification revolutionizes the workpieces the LEAD CNC Machine is capable of.

The High Z Mod uses dual extrusions for the X-Axis and connected gantry carts to increase the strength and stability while decreasing flex across the X-Z Axis.
