Machines will be dispatched within 24hrs of purchase.
All Vertigo CNC machines come fully assembled, including the MX3-N. They are shipped in their own custom-built shipping crates to keep them safe during transit. Just make sure you have some help to unload your machine and take it out of the box.
Once your Vertigo MX3-N CNC machine arrives it is ready to use straight out of the box. Just make sure you have pre-installed all the necessary software - this can be done before your machine arrives.
The Vertigo MX3-N CNC is designed for versatility and can be used to cut a range of materials like Foam, Wood, Plastic, Carbon Fibre, Aluminium, etc.
The Vertigo MX3-N is the largest CNC in the Neptune line: with a cutting envelope of 1200mm x 1200mm x 120mm, it is perfect for those bigger projects. The Vertigo MX3-N is sized to fit half a sheet of plywood, Most hardware store will have timber suited for this size and will usually cut wood to size free of charge if needed.
The Z-axis also has 140mm of travel which comes in handy when cutting thicker materials and using long cutting bits.
The Vertigo MX3 uses acme lead screws to drive each axis with power being provided by NEMA 23 stepper motors. This design provides the Vertigo CNC superior accuracy over similar belt driven machines.
The lead screws are held in place by a dual angular contact bearing to take load off the motor. The bearing is then held in place by a sleek bearing cap that is precision manufactured in-house.
The brains behind the Vertigo MX3 CNC is an LPC1769 microcontroller running an optimized version of Smoothieware.
The Vertigo CNC controller is a modular design, including the microcontroller board and four-driver boards running TMC262 driver chips
The control box boasts a number of useful features: an E-Stop can be found on top for easy reach. At the rear of the box is power in, and the touch probe and USB cable are at the front. The cable is attached directly to the controller to limit the risk of accidental disconnection.
The controller connects to the machine using an industrial “Epic” connector and is secured in place by two levers so there is no chance of accidental disconnection during operation.
The Z-axes on all Vertigo CNC machines are made out of billet aluminum machined in-house. The Z-axis is driven by a single lead screw centered between 2 linear rails.
The design of the Z-axis has been 2 years in the making. The most recent upgrade has been adding in the extra linear rail, which has shown noticeable improvement to the quality and accuracy of cuts.
All Vertigo CNC wiring looms are made using Lapp cable with Molex crimps and connectors, to ensure that the wiring is easily upgradable and customisable. The Molex connectors are used on all wiring connections including the motors, giving you versatility and the option to upgrade in the future as Vertigo CNC continues to innovate.
