Improperly operating the Snapmaker can cause injury or other serious consequences from the sharp CNC bits. Please read through this section before you start CNC carving and ensure everyone else who uses it reads this too.
Before You Start
● It is recommended that experienced users and users over 18 years old perform the setup and use the CNC carver.
● Wear the CNC Safety Glasses before you set up the CNC carver and throughout the CNC carving process.
● The CNC bits are sharp. Please handle them carefully and keep them out of reach of children.
● Keep a safe distance from the machine when it is carving.
● Do not use your Snapmaker while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
● Do not touch the CNC bit while the Snapmaker is on. If you are cut by accident, turn the machine off immediately and seek help from doctors.
To reduce the risk of electric shock or fire:
● Do not try to service, repair, or modify the Snapmaker.
● Never try to access the wiring of the Snapmaker.
● Do not open the power supply or any other sealed portion of the Snapmaker.

● If there is any emergency or malfunction, turn off the machine and unplug the power adapter.
● Only use a properly grounded outlet.
Keep Watch During Operation
● Never leave the Snapmaker unattended while operating – always stay within sight. Look at it frequently.
What if I’m not certain whether my materials are supported?
It’s recommended to only CNC carve the following materials:
Wood, acrylic, PCB, carbon fiber sheet
Do NOT CNC carve the following materials. They may damage the Snapmaker or cause injury.
Metal, glass, gem, etc.
Materials Must Fit
Materials that do not fit properly may obstruct operation and result in damage and cause injury.
● The size of the material must be smaller than 90 x90 x50 mm (3.5” x 3.5” x 2.0”).
● Do not place rolled-up material in the Snapmaker. It may be too tall, or unroll during carving, obstructing operation.
To prolong the life of your Snapmaker and to reduce the risk of fire or mechanical failure, do not put the Snapmaker where it could experience:
● Extreme temperature or humidity
○ Storage: below 14 degrees Fahrenheit (-10 Celsius) or over 120 degrees Fahrenheit (48 Celsius)
○ Extreme humidity conditions (below 10% or more than 75%)
● Direct sunlight
● Rain, moisture, or liquids
