Cheap can be split into two things. You can save on both cost and time for your diy desktop cnc machine.

1. Time – to save on time, you can get a lot of your parts made with cnc or with laser cutting. You should also be able to get these parts already finished, so you do not have to spend too much on having to finish up parts.

2. Cost – to save on cost, you can use recycled materials. Also, look at borrowing tools that you do not already have. Another alternative is to save on the software side of things by getting cheaper software. There is free cnc software out there that you can use as well as cad software. A lot of the time, cad software comes with a free demo period, such as AutoCAD, which normally gives you one month to test it out.
