How to Make a Three Axis CNC Machine (Cheaply and Easily) A salute to those who have laboured through to this point (and to demonstrate that it is reproducable) Here are some pictures of other peoples machines. Photo 1 - Chris and his friend put together this unit; laser cutting the parts out of half inch acrylic. Not only does it look super it must weigh a ton.
Valkyrie: $100 Arduino based CNC Apparently this CNC machine can be made in about 30 hours for approximately $100. It’s powered by an Arduino which interprets the code sent to it via Python. The Arduino then sends the data to the custom motor controllers that are based on the ATtiny 2313 and l298. This is the second version of a homemade CNC machine build using mostly off the shelve parts. The first one aka “The beast” had a lot of precision issues due to play in most parts which in turn was caused by mostly bad cutting. Also one of the biggest problems was that when I have build it I did not think to allow later adjustments to be done.
How to make a mini milling machine- manual or CNC! I think one of the best things about tools is that they can be used to make more tools! I decided to build a miniature milling machine for machining plastic parts, creating wax patterns and for drilling really small precise holes. I also wanted to design it so that I could convert it to CNC for machining circuit boards and for doing repetitive work. The finished mill has a 11" x 18" footprint and is about 19" tall. New Arduino Mega CNC machine......(UPDATED) My new machine, the other one was a prototype, now this one will use all the electronics.... Made with MDF, bigger than the prototype...... Almost done... My new control box, X, Y, Z axis, DB9 conector for the limit switches, and usb conection to computer. Better cable arrangement.....

This is a great way to make a top notch cnc machine with less financial investment and at the same time enjoy the process and have the satisfaction of building your own high quality CNC. MicroKinetics' CNC conversion kits require no wiring or soldering. Home Built CNC Laser Build Log Home Built 40W CNC Laser Project Overview Note: This design has been superceded by the 2.x Laser. There is a blog post on it, information on the wiki and a lot of discussion on the forum. Simple CNC Machine What I'm going to try and show you in this instructable is how to build a simple CNC machine. Now when I say Simple I mean you only require basic tools & materials to build the machine. The machine is made out of Sawn Timber, drawer sliders, nema 17 Stepper motors, a TB6560 Driver Controller Board and a Dremel Trio as the milling/cutting tool I started about year ago trying to build a CNC machine, I tried a few different designs but i struggled to get the building of them right. This was mainly down to the complexity of some of the designs and the lack of equipment I needed to build them and the money that they cost. So I went back to the drawing board and tried to build a machine that was easy to make and used readily available parts to keep the price down.

Arduino 3-axis Mini Lazer Paper-Cutter Updated : 16/3 Add step 4, about using the stage. Updated : 18/3 Add photos (cutting vinyl adhesive sheet) Updated : 19/3 Add step 5, acting as pen plotter Updated : 20/3 Add laser engraving video (Wood) and photo Updated : 22/3 Add 2 drawings to show the structures of machine, also visit this link. +++++++++++++++++++ I read many posts and now I had finished my first mini Lazer Cutter. The design is simple and reliable ( u can see the video ) It is using Arduino Duemilanove + GRBL (0.8c) + 100mW blue/ violet lazer with external battery power supply (5V)
CoreXY CoreXY CoreXY is a mechanism for building fast, compact XY motion stages. While it is not a CNC tool in of itself, the intention is that it might be incorporated into 3D printers, milling machines, etc. The design is described in greater detail at corexy.com . A video is at vimeo.com/40914530 . TechShop Laser Cutting Inspiring laser projects at TechShop! Hello! Before I get started, I should emphasize: this Instructable should be really, really easy, provided you have a laser cutter. Without one of those nifty devices, I would have labored hours to cr... CNC Panel Joinery Notebook I’ve been collecting clever ways of slotting flat stock together since I first read Nomadic Furniture back in 1999, well before the advent of the accessible hobby-class CNC tools that today make manufacturing parts like these pretty easy. Now, the world is full of people designing models, project enclosures, sculpture, furniture, and all kinds of other cool stuff to be assembled from parts made on laser cutters and CNC routers. I keep expecting a definitive book or website to emerge that covers the “bag of tricks” in an organized way, but so far, I haven’t found it. Maybe this article can serve as a jumping-off point. In any case, I think it’s time to share my notebook of CNC panel joinery. In presenting this material, I want to first acknowledge my respect for the world’s established and ancient traditions of joinery.
