Unfortunately, we are currently unable to provide larger quantities of material. However, there is a well-stocked material warehouse with leftover pieces that are freely available.
It is important that the plate is flat and at least 0.1m² in size, otherwise it will not hold on the vacuum table. If your material is too small, you can also screw it to a plate. In addition to wood materials, aluminum, copper, acrylic and other plastics can also be processed.

The CNC milling machine

The spindle has an output of 2.5 kW and has a vacuum table with which you can easily attach panel material. It is controlled via Buildbotics.

Milling cutter

As standard, the router is operated with a 6mm wood router bit (maximum immersion depth 21mm), which is suitable for wood-based materials such as plywood/chipboard or solid wood.
For other materials such as MDF, aluminum, copper, acrylic or other plastics, special router bits are required, which are available but may only be used after instruction. Milling cutters in many different sizes are also available for woodworking, but the cutter must be changed by a member of the CNC team.
If you do not want to get into CNC technology yourself or the 6mm wood milling cutter is not sufficient for your project, there is also the possibility that a member of the CNC team will support you with your project.

Processing area

2500 x 1250 x 40mm

File formats

To produce a milled object from your project, your drawing must be transferred to Fusion360 or VCarve, VCarve can be obtained free of charge from the conglomerate. If you want to use another CAD program or graphics program, all layers must be exported as .dxf/.dwg/.eps/.ai/.skp/.svg files and can then be imported into VCarve or Fusion360.

Recommended programs

To create the milling files:

Vector graphics and CAD programs:

  • OnShape: browser-based, free 3D CAD tool. Strongly oriented towards SolidWorks
  • SolidEdge2D free: free 2D CAD tool from Siemens
  • SketchUp free: free 3D graphics tool
  • Inkscape: free, open source program for creating vector graphics
  • Illustrator: program for creating vector graphics, part of the Adobe CreativeSuite

We use Buildbotics as our CNC controller.


If you would like to have something milled, please be sure to send your files with your request. These should either be vector graphics, 3D designs or finished G-code. If you are not sure, please send us your current status anyway so that we can give you feedback!

Vector graphics

Preferably in Illustrator format (.ai),

alternatively as pdf or svg

Please always make sure that the shapes are filled (i.e. consist of closed lines)

3D designs

Preferably as Fusion 360 construction, alternatively as .step or similar.


Please also bring the raw data with you in case we need to make any adjustments on site.
