UK based 3D product suppliers, Ooznest have just released another addition to their 3D machine kit line up. Having been in demand since the mechanical kits release, the new Ooznest OX is a high specification CNC router kit that creates upon the existing mechanical kit, the original OX CNC machine by Opencreates. The team at Ooznest hope to allow users to bring building back to the home and manufacture functional parts of woods, plastics and aluminum with their latest product.

New and improved with a special touch

Ooznest’s latest release improves upon the previous create and works to “increase the performance and create of the machine,” the company said. “On the Y-axis we have introduced an inner wheel brace, that reduces the movement of the wheels, and in addition helps to shield the wheels of cutting debris. All the plates supplied with machine are manufactured of 6082 Aluminium, and so shot blast and anodized in matt black.”


Additionally, via the well known V-Slot extrusion process, the Ooznest OX provides the machine with incredibly smooth and accurate linear motion. The kit in addition features:

  • NEMA23 stepper motors driving all axes
  • GT3 belt motion on the X & Y axes
  • ACME lead screw driven process on the Z axis
  • CNC xPro for motion control
  • Cable carriers for safe machine operation

What’s in the box

Previously, the Ooznest Prusa i3 Kit was reviewed by Tech Radar in 2015 and attained 4.5 out of 5. As a outcome, it was put on their Top 10 list for 2015 and 2016, and already stands at number 6 on the list. Ooznest, who have become known for providing high end products and kits, are proud to in addition contribute user friendly manuals along with their kits. The same, therefore, applies to the Ooznest OX, that houses two printed “IKEA-esque” manuals in the box covering the easy mechanical assembly and electronic setup.


Once customers obtain their kits, all the complex work is done. Assembly just requires each day tools like allen keys, screw drivers and pliers as all specialist jobs are done in house. A full kit comes with eachthing needed to create a working OX CNC Machine except the router and spoiler board. All the V-Slot rails are pre-cut and tapped straight out of the box. The Z-Axis ACME lead screw is in addition cut to the required length, and slightly filed, to insure a snug fit with the 688zz bearings. Additionally, various dimensions kits conveniently come with appropriate spoiler board supports.
