Fraiseuse sur tour à bois Je me suis dis que l'ordinateur et les automates sont présent partout dans la vie courante, je ne vois pas pourquoi il faudrait se passer d'un moyen moderne et actuel au service de la créativité. Les fraiseuses numériques sont des machines très chères réservées aux professionnels de l'industrie pour executer des pièces en séries. Cette fraiseuse est inspirée des machines utilisées par les modélistes de tous genres ( cncloisir / aeromaniacs ), pour construire leurs avions, bateaux, locomotives, batiments. Accessible aux amateurs avec un outillage disponible chez un bricoleur "de base" ne disposant que d'une perceuse à colonne et d'un poste de soudure à l'arc comme équipement "avancé". Ici pas question de series ni de tournage numérique, mais utiliser la machine pour faire du fraisage sur des pièces façonnées en tournage traditionel.

Introduction to using openFrameworks with Arduino Introduction to using openFrameworks with Arduino Skill Level: Intermediate by CTaylor | January 26, 2012 | 1 comment What is openFrameworks? openFrameworks is a very handy software library written in C++ that is written for the sole purpose of reducing the software development overhead faced by designers and artists that would like to create pieces that use various media (graphics, sound, video, electronics, etc.). For some great examples of projects that use Arduino and the oF libraries, be sure to check out the openFrameworks section of the Arduino Blog. Very impressive fluid dress concept by Charlie Bucket What will we do in this tutorial? This tutorial will go step-by-step through the process of installing openFrameworks, getting programs running with it and then using the oF software libraries to communicate over USB with an Arduino UNO. This tutorial assumes that: You know the programming and basic use of Arduino. Step 1: Install openFrameworks and Code::Blocks Now install Code::Blocks ...

Usinage CNC amateur DIY CNC Intro.. I've wanted to make a CNC router for some time now. I first used a cnc router a few years ago when I worked for a jigsaw making business, we had one cnc router and two small laser cutters. The router was capable of machining aluminum, but we mainly used it for making timber signs and the occasional engraving job. On the weekends I used the laser cutters and router to make all sorts of things, from speaker boxes to windmill parts. UPDATE... Multicam CNC router, 1200X1200 bed, vacuum table. I left the business to work for a larger engineering company to manage their new 5kW laser cutter, but I missed the CNC router. Another of my hobbies, windmills, meant I spent some time searching the internet for windmill related web sites, and I stumbled across Terrys windmill site. So I started some internet research into other home made cnc routers, and soon realised there was a lot more to home made routers than I first thought. My own CNC router

Sneak Preview of Maker Faire Rome Projects - ( Originally published in Make) In early July we spent a couple of days going through all of the submissions received to participate in Maker Faire Rome — the European Edition, taking place Oct. 3-6 in Italy. It was a great experience for us to discover makers’ projects from all around Europe, and the MakerTour gave us the chance to meet some of them and to produce 69 video clips to share this experience with all of you. You can watch the videos on the Maker Faire Rome channel on YouTube. On the blog we said thank you 320 times to everyone who submitted her or his ideas to Maker Faire Rome, and we published a map showing a total of 200 Italian projects and 120 from other countries participating in the Call for Makers, which ended on June 30. Shhh. FabSkate is a project designed as a proof of concept for digital manufacturing and developed by Luciano Betoldi with Fablab Barcelona team, in Spain. An early FabSkate design. You can watch a cool video interview of both below.

CNCLoisirs CNC Après le petit tutoriel de ce matin, voici un post qui résume le « flux de production » de mes fichiers GCODE. La base Tout commence par l’objet indipensable à la prise de mesure: le pied à coulisse. Les matériaux Une fois l’objet à créer correctement dimensionné, il faut trouver le matériau dans lequel on va le créer. Pour le bois, je prends en général du MDF ou du contreplaqué qui peuvent faire entre 3 et 15 mm.Pour le plastique j’utilise beaucoup le PVC qui a un bon rapport qualité / prix ainsi que du PEHD ( c’est ce qui est utilisé pour les plaques à découper dans votre cuisine ;-) ou encore du DELRIN (qui est excellent mais cher) Le choix du matériau est fait, maintenant les logiciels ! Les logiciels de CAO Pour dessiner des pièces à usiner, celui que j’utilise le plus, c’est LibreCAD. Quand il s’agit de graver des dessins ou du texte, rien de vaut inkscape qui n’est plus à présenter. Les logiciels de création du GCODE Ici, seulement deux logiciels sont utilisés: Pilotage de la CNC

MikesCNCShop The design I am using was found on a forum at www.cnczone.com. This design has several nice features. It uses MDF for the frame and black pipe for the axis guides. The linear bearings are made from aluminum angle and roller skate bearings and the lead-screws are 1/2-10 acme-threaded rod. I will need to modify the design for my specific space requirements. 11-18-05 I ordered more components tonight. The components are coming together quickly. 4-2-06 Today I started construction on the MDF frame for the router. I find that many people in CNC forums will build a simple machine then use that one to cut parts for a more complex or better machine. Y-axis torsion box laying on its side. 8-1/8 x 3 x 34-1/2. The top and bottom are 3/4" thick while the inner ribs are 1/2" thick. On the top and bottom of the torsion assembly, I used a 90-degree v-groove router bit to cut out a beveled groove for the pipe rails to seat in. This view shows the assembly with the grooves. The carriage dry fitted.

PROJECTS Microcontrollers as Material We’ve developed a set of tools and techniques that make it easy to use microcontrollers as an art or craft material, embedding them directly into drawings or other artifacts. We use the ATtiny45 from Atmel, a small and cheap (~$1) microcontroller that can be glued directly to paper or other objects. Codeable Objects Codeable Objects is a library for Processing that enables novice coders, designers and artists to rapidly design, customize and construct an artifact using geometric computation using geometric computation and digital fabrication The programming methods provided by the library allow the user to program a variety of structures and designs with simple code and geometry.

La Joe’s 2006 « à la main » CNC : La Joe’s 2006 « à la main » Posté par Robovergne le 2 September 2007 La Joe’s 2006 à été conçue de manière à ce que la quasi totalité des pièces puissent êtres découpées par une fraiseuse CNC ou au laser. Pas évident donc de réaliser cette machine avec des outils traditionnels. Pourtant, la structure étant entièrement en bois, cela devait bien être possible. N’ayant pas sous la main de fraise à 45° comme celle utilisé par Mike, j’ai sacrifié à la meuleuse une fraise à chanfrein bas de gamme pour supprimer le roulement et lui donner le profil voulu. Pour les pièces ayant des profils plus compliqués, comme les montants du portique, impossible de reproduire à l’identique les profils de découpes du plan d’origine. Dans le même esprit, les pièces symétriques sont percées toutes ensembles en les empilant, ce qui permet d’assurer l’alignement parfait. Voila voila, en conclusion, la Joe’s 2006, avec de petites adaptations, peut être réalisée avec des outils traditionnels.

Back to basics: Using 1 shift register At it's core the 74HC595 shift register is simply a way to turn on 8 signals at one time. To do this only 5 wires need to be run from the Arduino board. So you save 3 pins, "so what, I have plenty of pins" you ask? While this is true, the magic really happens when you want to use 16 signals, or, even 64 or more. A couple of entries ago, I dove into an overly aggressive project, attempting to wire 4 shift registers to control both the anode and cathode wires of my, now infamous, 8x8 RGB LED matrix. I full-heartedly dove right in wiring this together, borrowing some code that I found on-line, I compiled my masterpiece, watched as the transmit/receive LEDs lit up on my Arduino board as the code was transferred and watched, in horror, as absolutely nothing happened. [insert expletive here] I felt I understood the wiring but, admittedly, didn't understand the code at all. That's why I find myself here, now. Whew! Clear now? Now, I added my other components. Now we wire the LEDs. I hope!

Joe’s 2006 : Présentation J’ai profité que j’avais 2 semaines de vacances tout seul à la maison pour me lancer dans la construction d’une fraiseuse à commande numérique ou CNC. Qu’est-ce qu’une fraiseuse CNC ? Il s’agit d’un robot, controllé par un ordinateur, capable de déplacer dans l’espace, selon 3 axes, une fraise. Ceci permet donc de réaliser, selon un plan conçu dans l’ordinateur, des opérations de découpe, de perçage et de fraisage. La limite étant qu’avec 3 axes, la fraise ne peut travailler que perpendiculairement à la table. Les perçages et usinages ne sont donc possibles que selon l’axe Z. J’ai opté pour les plans de la “Joe’s” model 2006 dont les plans sont dispo librement sur CNCzone. Evidemment, une telle machine ne pourra jamais usiner de l’acier, ni atteindre une précision micrométrique, mais pour usiner polystyrène, plastique, bois et peut être même l’alu, elle devrait largement tenir la route. Cette machine est prévue pour être bâti en medium.
