The will and the enthusiasm that we put in mechanical planning within the realm of design have encouraged us to study, develop and give life to a new project: a powerful, compact, and easy CNC Mill, different from all the other problematic, heavy and expensive machines.
Evo-One CNC can be easily used by anyone: a hobbyist, a maker, a fab lab or a company. Thanks to its ease of use and to its polymethyl methacrylate covering you can use it inside any room, in your garage or in your office with no filth or dust coming out of the machine during the process and with a considerable reduction of noise.
Evo-One is a 3D and 2.5D milling machine. With your own project you can engrave, carve and cut very complex shapes with a micron precision on different types of materials like wood, plastic, metal and many others. You can give life to your ideas in just three steps:
-Draw or find your project
-Choose the material to work
-Start making through our software and obtain your final product.
Plastic : acrylic, PVC, polyethylene, HDPE, Corian e Delrin.
Wood: maple, mahogany, walnut, pine, MDF, plywood, balsa or cork.
Metal: aluminum, copper, brass, silver and gold.
Composite: Circuit boards, glass fiber, g10, carbon, linoleum, waxes, foams and many others.
One of the most worked aspects has been the achievement of a resistant structure, totally made of aluminium that gave stability and rigidity, with the aim of obtaining the best finishing from the making. The main flaw of CNC mill desktops today is the limited number of the spindle's rotations, that goes from 2000 to 12000rpm. This value doesn't permit to mill a large number of materials and negatively affects the speed of cut, not allowing to have rapid movements and clear cuts.
The spindle has been projected starting from scratch and before we found the safest and more accurate solution, we realized 9 prototypes. The inner part is made of one only aluminium block upon which the spindle is supported by 5 ball bearings connected to a brushless motor that goes from 3000 to 22000rpm and allows the milling for every kind of material or surface. The whole structure is contained in a carter with a cooling fan for the upper part, a speed controller and some LEDs that perfectly illuminate the work area. The spindle with the ER11M chuck can support mills from 1 to 7 mm.
We have drawn plenty of sketches, a lot of rendering and we have produced 3 real prototypes in order to get to the shape we wanted. Going against every trend, we have removed the parts made with plastic moulds and we have chosen a green line by using a perfect combination of aluminium and wood and with an aesthetically minimal line. In order to make this CNC mill Desktop usable everywhere, we have closed it laterally with durmast's wood panels upon which we have applied some aluminium details. The CNC mill is provided with a shell that can be opened to avoid a dispersion of filth and to render it safe for children too.

This is absolutely awesome. I can't wait for this to be a mainstay in shops across the world.
CNC milling is the next CNC printing. It's going to be one of those things where the 3D printers are really just the gateway bot for having a whole suite of CNC tools in the garage, or maybe one Omni bot, or who knows what else. Only a matter of time.
Evo-One is the new MakerDreams team's project and it represents the natural evolution of our first product: inventOne 3D printer. We have been working for two years and we produce 3D printers, fact that has allowed us to develop both a planning and manufacturing experience, giving us the possibility to identify from the beginning every problem that could arise during the product's development.
The will and the enthusiasm that we put in the mechanical planning and in the design have encouraged us to study, develop and give life to a new project: a powerful, beautiful and easy CNC Mill, compact and safe, different from all the other problematic, heavy and expensive machines.

Differently from a 3D printer, CNC mill carves the material from a block inserted in the machine so to produce 2.5D and 3D items with both a perfect yield and a smooth surface, using different kinds of materials.
