Become a 3D milling expert almost immediately with the MDX-50’s simple yet powerful built-in control panel and virtual control panel (VPanel), and bundled SRP Player CAM software that’s easy-to-use and simplifies operation. 

With the control panel at the front of the unit, almost all operations can be completed from the unit itself without having to go back to a PC. The VPanel interface operates seamlessly with the MDX-50 and allows users to make changes to spindle rotation or speed during operation.



The following items are just some of the materials that can be milled with the MDX-50 benchtop CNC mill:

  • ABS 
  • POM
  • Nylon Plastic Foam 
  • Modeling Wax 
  • PVC Plywood
  • Hardwood
  • Acetal


Mill Fine Details and Smooth Finishes


With an improved drive system, machine rigidity and enhanced drive mechanics, the MDX-50 mills incredibly smooth and accurate prototypes for testing structure, function, and assembly with other parts. A machining area of 400mm (X) x 305mm (Y) x 135mm (Z) supports production of large single objects or batch production of smaller multiple parts.


Free Your Time


The automated features of the MDX-50 enables users to mill with speed and confidence. Combine the 5-station ATC and optional rotary axis unit for the most automated and precise operation:

  • Auto-sensing function corrects the tool length to ensure milling accuracy for every job
  • Optional rotary axis for effortless production of complex surfaces:
  • Includes a wide, self-centering headstock and tailstock workpiece clamps
  • Auto-rotates materials from 0-to-360 degrees
  • Indexes for 2-sided, 4-sided and custom angles
