Affordable Desktop CNC Router with precision and durability
Sourcerabbit, innovative CNC technology start-up launches on Indiegogo
ATHENS, GREECE —October 10, 2015— SourceRabbit, a CNC technology lab located in Athens, is set to launch a crowdfunding campaign for their new product, “Rabbit Mill”, through Indiegogo.com on October 1st. The goal is to raise $12,000 for the production of the first batch of the Rabbit Mill, a compact and precise desktop milling machine at a competitive price for home users. The product will allow users to turn 2D and 3D designs into real objects from materials such as wood, metal and plastic in a speedy and accurate manner.
The ‘Plug n Play’ model offered by SourceRabbit will soon make desktop milling machines as easy to use as a traditional computer printer. The machines work easily with all applications that export G-Code, a programming language used mainly in computer-aided manufacturing for controlling automated machine tools. Chief Engineer and Founder Nikos Siatras stated that “our goal is to create a large community around our user friendly products and CNC technology, and we have already began to expand into software and the development of a large database of accessible designs”.
The company’s design philosophy focuses on three core values to provide products that are precise, durable and exude excellence. The state-of-the-art desktop CNC boasts a 0.0005” accuracy, guaranteed by the high quality of the linear bearings paired with chrome-plated steel axes. In fact, the axes are assembled from laser-cut ST37-2 Steel, one of the most durable materials on the market today. SourceRabbit claims a very diligent quality control, such that extensive use will not wear down the hardware and users will always achieve high accuracy on their designs.
The Rabbit Mill becomes even more attractive to customers give its retail price point; it will be the most affordable of the “home-use” on the market. There are two packages available, the Expert Package includes all mechanical parts, electronics and stepper motors and costs $500 US. The second option, SourceRabbit’s Plug and Play Rabbit Mill, will be sold for $700 US, ships fully equipped with a Spindle, power supply and a selection of endmills to cater for different materials and design types.
SourceRabbit aims to raise enough capital through their Indiegogo campaign to secure volume discounts for larger scale orders of parts. Additional sales will be utilized to improve the lab’s equipment and support research and development plans revealed by its founder.
The crowdfunding campaign will begin October 18, 2015.
