Thread: Axiom cnc

  1. #16
    I just ordered a AR6 Basic with stand and toolbox last Tuesday. Hope I get it soon. I had a HD4 Shark and returned it after a few months. Couldn't keep it running.
    Looking forward to having a better built machine.

  2. Can anyone tell me how they like their Axiom Pro? I'm particularly interested in accuracy and capability, and would like to know how the water cooled spindle performs. I just sold a 5' x10' Shopbot Alpha with a Colombo 3HP Spindle, I needed the room in my shop, and am interested in replacing it with a smaller format such as the 2'x4' Axiom which I can index to cut longer items such as a carved mantle. How does it perform in 3D? Is anyone in or near the Spokane WA area?

    Any updates on the Axiom CNC's? For those who have them have you had any issues?

    Thanks

    I ordered my AR6 a week ago Tuesday and found out Thursday that it will be a month before I ever see it.
    They are selling them faster than they can make them.
    Great for them, bad for people who are waiting for them. I sure hope it's as good as people say they are.
    Sure looks like a sturdy machine. I got to play with one at my local Rockler a few weeks ago. Rock Solid is my best observation.

    We have the Axiom AR8 Pro (2' x 4') and it has been incredibly accurate, reliable and capable. The closed-loop water cooling for the spindle does great. We have run many several-hour jobs and the spindle never got above lukewarm. You can place your hand on the body of the spindle and it barely gets above very slightly warm. Overall we are incredibly pleased with the purchase of our Axiom. It is a very well built, sturdy and strong machine. Have not had any problems.
    Thanks,

    Hi John Krumlauf, we picked up our Axiom from Wood Werks in Columbus too. Axiom Precision is actually connected to the same building as Wood Werks.

    How have you been liking your Axiom? We have been incredibly pleased with ours. No problems whatsoever thus far.
    Thanks,

  7. To all you guys with Axiom machines, I'm curious how you like the RichAuto controller?

    I'm using an old Techno Davinci, updated with Gecko drivers and Mach3, wondering how the RichAuto compares to Mach3?

    I don't have a Axiom, but I had a shark HD4 that also uses a pendant, very similar to the RichAuto A11. It really isn't hard to figure out. You just have to use short file names for your projects. I think it's 6 digits long which was the same as the Shark.
    I ran a Axiom A6 at my local Rockler store and made some cuts with it. Took about 10 min to figure out the controller. I actually like the idea of the pendant controller and no pc in the shop. Others however use the pc with Wincnc and love it.
    I will say the Axiom machine is rock solid. Zero slop of any kind in the X,Y and Z axis. And it's quite heavy. No plastic anywhere on the machine except for some covers.

    I agree with Mike, I've got the ar8 - 2 x 4 foot - with spindle. It just runs without problems. I do v carved signs and v carved inlays. The inlays are perfect, here's one I did for my niece

    That is very nice Gary! Great job on the inlay!
