The Vertigo MX1-N is the smallest Vertigo CNC, but with a cutting envelope of 600mm x 600mm x 120mm, it still offers a good amount of desktop working area.
The Z axis also has 140mm of travel which comes in handy when cutting thicker materials and using long cutting tools.
The Vertigo MX1-N CNC features an MDF bed that is durable and easily replaceable as well as adds strength to the machine
The bed of the MX1-N features 5 full-length universal T-slot rails placed a convenient distance apart for work-holding. The machine comes with 6 T-bolts, allowing you to get up and cutting as soon as possible.
The brains behind the Vertigo MX1-N CNC is an LPC1769 microcontroller running an optimized version of Smoothieware.
The Vertigo CNC controller is a modular design, including the microcontroller board, four driver boards running TMC262 driver chips and an ESP32 for Wi-Fi functionality (coming soon).
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 a number of connections: power in, Ethernet and touch probe connector. Also on the back of the controller is the cooling fan and power switch. There is also a USB cable for connecting the controller to your computer. 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.
