"What a great product at a great price. This controller is full of quality products and workmanship and does exactly what it says it does. "

I first learned about the G3CNC controller when I decided to build my own CNC vs. buying a pre-made one. I knew nothing about CNC's in the beginning but have dabbled in woodworking all my life, so I knew I'd enjoy the process of making my own machine. While researching, I learned about the electronics needed to run the CNC. While I have basic electrical knowledge, I soon became a bit overwhelmed with the options on what were the best motors, stepper drivers, breakout boards, power supplies, etc. I knew I'd have my hands full in building the CNC so I decided to buy a pre-built electronics kit to power it. I simply didn't have the brain power to learn not only CNC itself, but CAD/CAM to design with, and now electronics on top of all that. I was impressed with the G3CNC solution from what I saw online and made the purchase with little hesitation. Add to that the fact that Stacy quickly answered any questions I had prior to even purchasing the kit as well as a few more afterwards and I can say I made the right call. I probably could have saved a few bucks buying everything myself but the time I'd spend putting it together and probably getting some things wrong in the process made me realize that I prefer having an expert do all that work for me.
The unit itself is very impressive and professional-looking. Admittedly, I am a "see how it works" guy so I popped the top to see the magic behind the curtain, and the build quality inside is top-notch. I never could have pulled that off. Everything is neatly mounted, with plenty of airflow between the electronics to keep them cool. Wiring is neat and routed well. Finally, although G3CNC is not local to me, I like knowing that my purchase is going to a small-business owner and not one of the massive warehouses selling parts.
Overall, I'm glad I bought the G3CNC kit.

Your G3 CNC controller I got was great, the build quality was top notch with exceptional quality components. If you open the case the wires are professionally ran and all the components are mounted securely. To me this was the best you could buy. And lastly the service, you cant ask for someone to take care of consumers better. I had an issue with my z plate not working and within a hour Stacy was able to figure out where I changed a setting and get me squared away. He knows his product front and back so if a problem should come up he can walk you though it to get it fixed fast and you making more saw dust. Don't go and buy the components yourself and try to make it all work, get the G3 CNC Controller and get up and running fast.
The G3CNC is great. Please follow his instructions, I tried to do all the settings myself and made a mess. Thanks to Stacy's rapid response, my error was corrected quickly and I was off and running. Use the profile included. The design is top notch and the components are high quality. Glad I got the G3CNC.

G3CNC answered all of my questions about getting started and what I needed. always a quick response and very helpful. Great product with nice E-stop included at no extra charge. Got me up and running quickly. Did I mention how powerful the motors are? The unit is well constructed and not a condensed pile of wires, very professionally made. I highly recommend it.
The G3CNC Controller really is a "professional controller for the hobbyist" with top tier components and professional service to match. Stacy helped me out with a few issues, which was me and not his product. Again thanks for your help and also in producing a great product, definitely impressed with the quality.
About 30 yeas ago is use to do cutter path programming in a G M die shop but we never got into the controller part, that was a E D S thing. So during the Gatton C N C build I started looking for some type of controller, fortunately through the Gatton website I herd about G3 C N C.
The whole experience has been excellent, I had a little trouble at first getting it to run, As it try urned out it was a problem with my download of one of the files, Stacy very helpful an patient as we worked through it
Good product and great support!
