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 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. Photo 2 - Sam McCaskill has finished his desktop CNC machine and it's looking really really nice. Photo 3 - Angry Monk's - With MDF pieces cut on a laser cutter and drive converted from toothed belts to threaded rod Photo 4 - Bret Golab's - Bret has completed his and gone through the extra step of getting it setup to work with Linux CNC (a task I attempted and was foiled by complexity). (If you have built one and would like it featured here, please send me a PM and we can arrange for the sending of photos)
MOTORES PASO A PASO - FUNCIONAMIENTO Y CONTROL POR COMPUTADORA Veamos cómo podemos realizar determinadas rutinas para el movimiento del motor desde la PC utilizando la interfaz sugerida: Haciéndolo girar en ambos sentidos: El mostrado en la figura 13 es un programa realizado en Qbasic y muy fácil de interpretar, en donde podemos ver como se puede hacer rotar el motor una vuelta en un sentido y luego otra en el sentido contrario. Puede visualizar o bajar directamente el ejecutable, llamado stepper. exe directamente desde la página de TodoRobot. Agregando dos botones para controlar el giro: en el programa de la figura 14 se ha sofisticado aún más el uso de la interfaz mediante el agregado de dos botones en el puerto de entrada TTL para indicar cuando girar hacia un lado o hacia el otro, o bien permanecer inmóvil hasta tanto no se presione ningún botón. En la figura 15 se puede apreciar el conexionado de los botones y el motor con la interfaz. El funcionamiento es muy simple.
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..... 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. The X axis travel is 6 1/8" The Y axis travel is 6 1/4" The Z axis travel is 2 1/4" If there are any questions about any of the drawings or something just doesn't make sense just ask! Follow along and build one for yourself!
Crea tu Mini Maquina de CNC con Arduino, Easy Driver y Ubuntu (Basada en Contraptor) Esta entrada esta dedicada a mis queridos compañeros de FIME En muchas otras Universidades le llaman tambien Robot Cartesiano, o demas nombres.

Build Your CNC - CNC Router Kits, CNC Machine Kits, Laser Cutter and Engraver and 3D Printer Techno 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. The Video Gives a quick overview of the Machine
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. This was designed as a "self replicating" laser cutter engraver'. This is not a mamby pamby little diode laser than can slowly cut through a piece of thin black tape. This was designed to be a dirt cheap, but fully capable laser cutter. The buildlog is presented blog style (most recent entry first) if you want to go view it the other way click here... How can you contribute to the project? Participate in the forum. Builder: bdring Member Since: 2009-11-22 Monday, December 20th 2010 - 12:16 PM I found out the nozzles I had on order probably won't come in until the first week of January. add comment in the forum Wednesday, December 1st 2010 - 3:26 PM I don't use those clamps on the design anymore. I have attached the clamp drawing in case you want to use it anyway. Friday, November 12th 2010 - 1:22 PM 1. 2. 3.
