Software

Vectric Aspire, VCarve PRO, or Fusion 360 recommended.  Any CAM processor that produces grbl output will work fine! 

Of course, we’ve also connected with industry specific software packages such as Cabinet Vision for casework and more!

Spindle

Speed

5,000 – 24,000 rpm (model dependent).  Currently, we are using an 800 watt AMB air cooled spindle for North American shipments with 110v US wiring.  A 220v US wired SmartBench with a 1050 watt variable speed (software controlled) spindle is also available for $200 more.  (If you opt for the 220v version, the entire system is wired for 220v not just the spindle).

Collet

1/4″ collets shipped for US purchases – max shank 10mm (0.394”, and is available as an option).

Finished Part

Accuracy:

accurate to +/-0.5mm (0.019685″) or better, over a 2.5m (98.42″) distance.

Power requirements

Voltage:

230v or 110v – 110v units are being shipped to US customers typically, although a 220v US version is also available for a minimal difference in price.    If you are using the SmartBench to auto-power your dust extraction unit, it needs to be under 10 amps draw.

Power:

1400 watts = approximately 13 amp total draw; 10 is available for the dust extractor

The simple answer is everything that’s required to start producing parts except the following items

CAD/CAM software

In order to get cutting, you’ll need to use your own CAD/CAM software to design and create your projects. We recommend you use Vectric products or Autodesk’s Fusion 360 to model and CAM process your files. We’ve added our router configuration into Fusion 360 meaning after you’ve processed your file through the CAM process you can simply choose Smartbench from the drop down list and send the finish cut file to the router via Wi-Fi or USB.

Other G Code generating CAD/CAM packages can be used, so if you use a cabinetmaking software package, signmaking software etc – it typically has the proper output for the SmartBench.  (grbl).

Router bits

Standard router bits can be used to fit the router head.  US systems are shipping with a 1/4″ collet, but other collet sizes are available up to 10mm in diameter.

Dust Extraction

You will need to provide an extraction unit to attach to our standard hose, and then plug the power supply into the on/off socket provided.   10 amp max draw if connecting to the SmartBench.

Installation

We’ve designed our routers as a self install product to negate the need and cost of any professional installation.

Once you receive your router and have unpacked it, installation is easy, just follow our comprehensive instructions and you’ll be up and running in approximately 5 – 10 minutes.

Warranty

We offer a 12 months parts and labor (excludes wearable parts) return to point of purchase warranty.

In the unlikely event you need some warranty support, the first point of contact will be via your point of purchase telephone support to analyze the issue.

Should it be diagnosed that the unit needs to be returned, packaging will be provided to return the x carriage and/or control box back to your point of purchase.

Your point of purchase will provide the freight both ways.

Once back, your point of purchase will undertake the repairs and return your repaired Yeti router to you.

Packaging

We appreciate the experience of receiving your router is all part of the buying experience. So we’ve thought about that too.

Our packaging has been design to be easily handled by one person as it is easily separated into four packs.

Shipping

 

As we are ramping up production, we are shipping direct from Yeti Tool (UK) to your doorstep.  Our typical delivery service is as indicated below.

North America 3 – 5 working days = it seems most of the shipments to USA addresses are arriving in 3 days from the UK.

Of course the speed of delivery depends on the freight service chosen, but typically we have been using UPS with great success.  AS OF 9/3/2019 WE WILL BE SHIPPING IN 5 BOXES.  I WILL UPDATE SIZES AND WEIGHTS ONCE I HAVE THE INFORMATION.
