24'' of Y capacity, numerous automatic alignment features and Virtual Zero software give the Piranha XL a powerful bite.

CNC Piranha XL® with Laser Engraving Module

Item #
74% of 100

The additional Y capacity of the CNC Piranha XL® brings it one step closer to a full-sized CNC, while still maintaining its attractive price. With a Y capacity of 24'', it's perfect for projects like carvings, plaques, ornamental boxes and precision parts machined from wood, soft metals, or plastics. The Z travel is also increased from previous models to 4'' for additional thickness capacity. Automatic alignment features such as auto edge sensing, auto center locating, rotational sensing and XY homing capability make setups easier than ever. The Piranha XL also ships standard with Virtual Zero software, which maps the surface of your workpiece for unerring accuracy. 3D carving capability, complete with a 3D models library, gives you the ability to carve expensive corbels and cut intricate inlays or engravings. With its slim profile, the entire machine can easily fit onto one end of your workbench. To use, just design your work with the included VCarve Desktop V9.5 Design software on a PC computer with a USB 2.0 port (not included). Save the program directly to a USB flash drive, plug it into the pendant, select your file, and hit the run button. Thanks to this file transfer system, there is no need to subject your computer to a dusty shop environment.


  • Virtual Zero software "maps" the surface of your table or workpiece and uses the map as a dynamic reference point. This virtually eliminates problems caused by warped or bowed work pieces
  • Touch-screen pendant controlled software package with color graphics
  • X & Y homing capability
  • Aluminum interlocking table with T-track slots for firm, flexible clamping
  • Color touch-screen pendant controller system for ease of use

  • Ships fully assembled so you can get started right away!
  • Requires a PC computer with USB 2.0 port (not included)
