The Make Anything Machine: 3D Prints, Laser Engraves, and Carves
 
Holland, OH – Next Wave Automation, located in Holland, OH, has just announced that its newest product, CNC Piranha Fx , a CNC routing system that can also 3D Print and Laser Engrave, will be available to the general public on October 1, 2015. A recent Association of Woodworking & Furnishings Suppliers® (AWFS®) Visionary Award winner for Product Innovation, the CNC Piranha Fx is the latest Next Wave CNC system and the only hobbyist machine that has 3D printing, laser engraving, along with CNC routing/carving functionality.
 
CNC Piranha Fx will be available October 1, 2015.
 
“CNC Piranha Fx is an entirely new generation of machine – a make anything machine that will enable users to 3D print, laser engrave and carve, all on one machine,” says company founder Tim Owens.  
 
Next Wave calls the CNC Piranha Fx the “Make Anything Machine” because it is available with three easy to use modules letting users carve, laser engrave and 3D print, all on a single machine, all using a super simple, highly intuitive touch screen, all with an optional digitizer:
 
  • D Printing Module: Replicate parts, create figures, design and fabricate literally anything. Users’ design and DIY manufacturing ability is limitless with Piranha Fx’ 3D printer. Users can design their own object with the included Vectric software on their own pc or laptop, OR they can get the optional digitizer to copy an existing object.
  • Laser Engraving Module: Engrave flat sheet materials such as paper, wood, plastic or fabric. The Piranha Fx laser allows users to engrave existing images, like photographs or drawings, in addition to creating their own designs. 
  • Carving/CNC Routing Module: Whether users want to carve in wood, aluminum, soft metal or plastic, Piranha Fx can handle it all. Users can carve circuit boards, aluminum and other non-ferrous metals, like copper, brass, etc.
  • Optional Digitizer: With the optional digitizer, Piranha Fx makes it possible to recreate and copy small objects or existing three dimensional images and objects. Piranha‘s digitizer actually learns by touch, so it can learn to recreate things that are hard to find or replace. This function is also perfect for hand-made objects users might want to mass produce. 
The CNC Piranha Fx will be available in three models: the Piranha Fx – Base which includes the carving module; the Piranha Fx – Engrave, which includes the carving and laser engraving modules; the Piranha Fx – 3D, which includes the carving, laser engraving and 3D printing modules. The MSRP starts at $1,599.00.
