Unlocking New Possibilities with the Snapmaker 2.0 Rotary Module
The Snapmaker 2.0 Rotary Module is an addon component for the Snapmaker 2.0 3D printer, CNC router, and laser cutter. This Module adds a fourth axis to your Snapmaker, allowing for rotary carving and laser engraving. With the rotary Module, you can create three-dimensional artworks, such as desktop miniatures and small-sized sculptures, with incredible precision and detail. In this article, we will look closer at the features and benefits of the Snapmaker 2.0 Rotary Module.
Features and Benefits:
The Snapmaker Rotary Module is a powerful tool that allows you to take your creativity to the next level. The Module is designed to be easy to install and use, and it comes with a range of features that make it an excellent choice for hobbyists, artists, and makers.
One of the key features of the Snapmaker 2.0 Rotary Module is its ability to create three-dimensional artwork with incredible detail and craftsmanship. Unlike FDM or SLA 3D printing technologies, the rotary Module can accomplish this without extrusion, layer shifting, stringing, or supports. This means that you can create complex designs without any limitations.
The rotary Module also has a 3-jaw chuck that can rotate with a minimum angle of 0.1°, thanks to its strain wave gearing and 100:1 speed reducer. This allows you to work on uneven and irregular surfaces without missing a step. The Module offers 360° continuous rotation with a maximum angular speed of 45° per second, and you can control the rotation precisely using the touchscreen, with options for 0.2, 1, and 5-degree rotation.
In addition to rotary carving, the Snapmaker Rotary Module enables your Snapmaker 2.0 to laser engrave. This means you can easily create various designs, from small-scale sculptures to intricate objects.
The Snapmaker 2.0 Rotary Module comes with the free CAD and CAM software Snapmaker Luban to make your workflow even more seamless. With Luban, you can create your designs from scratch, import existing files, and convert them into G-code for your Snapmaker. The new touchscreen feature, Origin Assistant, smoothens your experience and interaction with rotary carving. Presetting CNC bits, setting origins and Z-offsets, and installing materials are simple. You can also choose Assist Mode for easier processes or Manual Mode for more flexible controls.
The rotary Module supports dozens of materials, including wood, tooling boards, plastic, bamboo, leather, fabric, non-transparent acrylics, and more.
Rotary carving is known for having a learning curve and is not as user-friendly to newcomers. That’s why we took a step further to smoothen your transition from 3-axis to 4-axis machining.
The Snapmaker 2.0 Rotary Module carries the same design signature as the Snapmaker 2.0. The metallic grey finish gives it a sophisticated look and feel. Fully anodized aero-grade aluminum is the secret to its durability.
Make with confidence. Start rotary carving, and if something went awry, press the Snapmaker 2.0 Emergency Stop Button and start fresh again. The Snapmaker 2.0 Emergency Stop Button is designed to provide an extra layer of safety for 3D Printing, laser engraving, and CNC carving. Press the stop button, and your operation will come to a halt.
The Snapmaker 2.0 Emergency Stop Button can be installed practically anywhere, so you can easily access the stop button when it matters most. Imagine if you wanted to salvage your art piece or the bit was about to crash into the machine, you pressed the stop button without thinking, and further potential harm was prevented.
Snapmaker 2.0 Rotary Module is an excellent addition to your Snapmaker. It’s easy to install and use and has features that make it an excellent choice for hobbyists, artists, and makers who want to create detailed and precise three-dimensional artwork. With the rotary Module, you can take your creativity to the next level and create three-dimensional artwork with incredible detail and precision.
