Hi! Welcome to 3D Tech Works!
Due to circumstances beyond our control, commencing Feb 1, 2021, we are no longer doing custom machine builds. We are focusing on importing and reselling CNC machine kits. We will still be open, and taking orders for kits. We will no longer be importing machines directly from China due to regulatory and other issues. We will be importing from the US only.
We will be available to provide advice, referrals, and answer CNC related questions.
1. Please take the time to READ through the website. The answers to 90% of your questions are here, including prices, specs, info on software, tutorials and explanations of how things work in the Blog, etc.
2. We are a local Calgary based business.
3. Please use the Contact Form rather than simply emailing us. It provides important info for me to assess your request. Although we ask for your phone number, we do not sell, share, or do other telemarketing. We simply use the area code to find out what area you live in, and if we do not get a response to our email reply, we may try to contact you by phone or text to verify that you have received our response.
4. We do not have a storefront or demo machines. We do not stock machines. We do have a complete parts inventory. We run a small business out of our home shop. Visits by appointment only.
5. While our site does work on a mobile device, we recommend using a full size computer or laptop to view the site for the best experience.
COVID19 update – we are open and things are slowly starting to improve. At least they were, until this latest round. The $CAD has bounced back a bit, and shipping is starting to open up. Shipping times are still slow, so expect delays on most orders. Some Pricing on the site has been updated, but please contact us for a quote. Note also that supply is somewhat slow due to shipping and movement constraints, and some products are still unavailable or sell out quickly when they do come back into stock. This will affect your delivery dates.
We supply industry standard kits for CNC machinery specifically designed for the beginner to advanced hobbyist.
We supply benchtop CNC routers kits with state of the art components and modular construction techniques to keep costs down and quality up.
All our benchtop machines are based on OpenBuilds open source hardware and designs. Open Source hardware is a freely distributed system whereby any user can purchase, assemble, and use proprietary component designs for their own use without penalty.
We do not sell machines larger than 1000x1000mm. If you want a larger industrial machine, be prepared for sticker shock. We can refer you to several companies that can help you out.
We currently supply several different models of Benchtop CNC kits, in different sizes and price ranges for any budget. Note that these are Hobby grade machines and are not designed for full time industrial or commercial use.
We can ship kits anywhere in Canada, but we do not export outside of Canada. All currently available kis are shown on the Products page.
Our kits are not limited to CNC milling. All of the machines can be equipped with Vinyl Cutting heads, Laser Heads, etc.
NEW! We have recently added the ability to pay by Credit Card or your Paypal account to our website. We can send you a link via email, or you can click on the Online Payment menu item to be redirected to the payment page. Please read all instructions before trying this method.
We are an Official OpenBuilds Dealer!!!
