ChinaCNCzone manufactures different models of mini CNC machine such as 3 Axis CNC, 4 axis CNC and 5 axis CNC routers. Now CNC 3040, CNC 6040 and CNC 6090 have 3 axis and 4 axis version. HY 3040 and HY-6040 5 axis version sold more.

Generally speaking, customers like to select those which with higher configuration such as mini 5 axis CNC HY 6040.This is good for users with rich experience in operation CNC router machine.
Mini 5 Axis CNC

If you are a new starter, 3 axis 4 axis CNC 6090 or mini 5 axis HY 6040?
We recommend you CNC 6090 3 axis or smaller ones according to your actual needs.
Below are the information for your reference:
CNC 6090
First,as to CNC control software, the HY6040 only use MACH3 ,Meanwhile it did not have independent controller box. The CNC 6090 model has 3 different controller box , but only recommend USBCNC model to you because it is the most easy to use for new starter.

Second, MACH3 only support parallel port , Win 7 32bits with mini 5 axis CNC 6040,and the CNC 6090 USBCNC support USB port and Win 10 and support dxf file for 3Axis work.

Third,6090 USBCNC 3 Axis model engrave flat pattern(without embossed effect),you only need to import dxf file and set engraving depth through USBCNC software, no need to design G code , That was simple for new users.and for mach3 HY 6040, you need to do G-code.

Fourth, as for G-code designing, the more axis, the more complicated for designing.3 axis is the most simple, 4 axis need time to learn, and 5 axis needs professional engineer.

For a new starter, ChinaCNCzone always recommend the most suitable one mini CNC router or hobby CNC router for you.
