Building a CNC router. How_to_build_a_multimachine. Mini Desktop CNC Machine Build! A bit about myself, I am 16 years old and for my senior project for high school, I plan on building a small CNC router.

Mini Desktop CNC Machine Build!

The CNC router will be used for; PCB's, wood work, plastics and (hopefully) Aluminium. The main base frame is made from 40x40 and 40x80 extrusion and the Z axis is made of 12mm aluminium. The side plate are made from 12mm steel plate. The linear rails that are going to be used are the 16mm supported rail type that you can get from ebay. The proposed working area is 300x200mm with 110mm z. Build Thread Ryan's g0704... - Page 16. MTM Snap. F-Engrave. Adam Iseman's CNC machine. Micro-Laser Cutter Project - LVL1. From a Challenge, the Project is Born When LVL1 was discussing the purchase of a Laser Cutter, one of its members said "I could build one before you get around to buying one.

Micro-Laser Cutter Project - LVL1

" And so the race began. Then on 7/13/2011, the Micro-Laser Cutter was demonstrated. On 7/14/2011, the purchased laser cutter arrived. So, the member built a laser cutter faster than the space could buy one. The mechanical core of the project is the axis movement. The threadeds rod is mounted in small bearings for smooth movement. Although the device only moves in two axes, three drive axis are employed. The two Y-Axis assemblies hold a platform for the item to be laser cut. Here are images of the assembled unit. The functional breakdown of the unit is displayed below. The arrows show the direction of communication and power source. The actual layout is displayed below. The components are arranged in/on the back panel of a flat screen monitor that was available. And here are the circuits. Hardware Modding & Tuning Gallery.

The plans and Solidworks files are available for free @ Thingiverse!

Original Aluminium upgrades The CAD planning took about 30 hours. So far I have used 2 days building and got the main table torsion box and base structure finished. CNC. This project is so far one of my favorites, one uni holidays I decided that it would be handy to have a cnc machine, so I did the logical thing and started to design one.


I quickly got distracted and gave up designing and just started building the thing and this is what I ended up with. There are quite a few things I will change when I get the chance to build mk2, as I go through my build here I will do some of the rudimentary analysis that I should have done before constructing the machine, at the end of each section I will try and include some suggestions on how to make it better. Unfortunately I did not take many photos along the way so I have whipped up some basic CAD models to help me describe parts of the machine (another thing I should have done before building it). There is a short video of my machine running a 3D test routine from EMC2 below the slide show, this is running at the maximum speed my machine is capable of with the current drive screws and steppers.

Our new project contributor, Riley Porter, has a project that he’s just shared with us. It’s an Arduino Shield that plugs into an Arduino and turns it into a 3-axis CNC controller. This is very exciting hardware. For $70, you can turn your Arduino into a three-motor motion control system. Here’s what Riley has to say about the grblShield. Simen Svale Skogsrud is the programmer responsible for the Grbl, the G-code interpreter to be used with the Arduino development board.

Grbl is a G-code interpreter that implements a subset of the RS-274/NGC standard and is tested with the output of a number of CAM-tools with no issues. Before now, acquiring the needed stepper drivers and wiring up an Arduino to work with them was something of a messy process. Features of the grblShield: Inkjet/Toner Hybrid PCB Printing.

After a fair amount of trial and error I’ve got a reasonable method for printing a PCB with a silkscreen using a modified inkjet printer.

Inkjet/Toner Hybrid PCB Printing

This isn’t a new idea but I haven’t really seen the inkjet/toner hybrid method detailed so I thought I’d share my experience and tips. The great thing about the hybrid method is that it stands up to Cupric Chloride etchant which is helpful when you don’t have access to Ferric Chloride. The videos are a bit long but I wanted to share some of the detail, I hope it’s helpful. This method comes with 2 warnings (The later you should take seriously) Acid is dangerousEpson inkjet printers are dangerous (for your sanity)

Hacking A Printer To Directly Print PCB's. Mini CNC. My CNC Engraver (Part 1) The goal of this project is to design and build a CNC wood router/engraver.This turned out to be a much larger project than I had anticipated.

My CNC Engraver (Part 1)

Bigger both in terms of dollars and hours I spent on it. It took me about 50 hours to build the mechanical portion of my CNC machine and I still have to do the electrical and software work. This posting will focus on the parts list and the mechanical systems. Welcome to CamBam. PRO Chopper Driver Board Kit. Control 3 or 4 Stepper Motors From Your Computers Printer Port!
