Although this cnc machine is offered at an entry level price, the CNC Piranha® is every bit as capable as its larger cousin, the CNC Shark®, and it also includes a convenient touch-screen interface! Its compact 12'' x 18'' table makes it perfect for smaller-scale projects like carvings, plaques, ornamental boxes and precision parts machined from wood, soft metals, or plastics – all at a fraction of the price of a full-sized CNC. With its 3-D carving capability, including a 3-D models library, you can carve expensive corbels and cut intricate inlays and engravings.

The CNC Piranha® is so incredibly accurate that you can even use it to engrave custom circuit boards. Its creative potential is unlimited, and the entire machine can easily fit on one end of your bench. Just design your work with the included VCarve Desktop Design software on your PC computer with USB 2.0 port, and then simply save the program directly to a USB flash drive, plug it into the Pendant, select your file, and hit the run button. No need to have your computer subjected to a dusty shop environment. PC & USB flash drive sold separately.
