New, and extraordinary, from Next Wave Automation, the must-have tool for any sized shop. The CNC Shark HD5® Extended Base will handle all your machining needs, whether it’s in a home shop environment or on the production floor.

The HD5® Extended comes standard with everything you need to quickly get it set up and running: the latest version of Vectric VCarve Pro design software, a color pendant controller, 2 hold down clamps, carbide V-bit, and Next Wave Automation’s exclusive, patented Virtual Zero Unlimited software.

Built with industrial grade components, the CNC Shark HD5® also features a heavy-duty aluminum and steel reinforced gantry, a new extruded aluminum router mount system, interlocking aluminum table, linear rails and guides on the gantry, and anti-backlash, wear compensated lead screws on all axis.

The HD5® Extended Base is the perfect tool for carving or machining a large variety of projects made from wood, soft metals, composites, or plastics. The HD5® Extended Base is fully compatible with Next Wave Automation’s extensive product line of additional accessories, such as laser, 4th axis, scanner, and more.

The CNC Shark HD5® Extended Base is made in the USA, comes with a full one-year warranty and includes lifetime technical support so you can buy with confidence.

Virtual Zero Unlimited, this patented Next Wave exclusive software allows you to map the surface of your material by taking an unlimited number of reference points. The program then uses these points to auto adjust the G-code to conform to the actual surface of your material. This eliminates problems caused by a warped or bowed work piece and allows you to maintain a constant cutting depth on projects that other machines would not be able to handle.
