If I win the printer one of my other project would be to build this monstrosity "THE PUMPKINATOR"
Here is my idea for a CNC pumpkin carving machine.. simple concept pivot A axis for the pumpkin radius this will be adjustable in the z axis for different sized pumpkins. the B axis is servo driven, so is the rotary B.
I want to build the main components with a 3d printer. to make this cheap enough to mass produce.
Step 1: CNC Controlled pumpkin carver
Here I have some spare motor controllers from my robot arm project I can use to build the Pumpkinator. I also have encoders ready to install for feedback. This will be a quick and easy build.
What an awesome instructable this will be. cant wait to get started. All I need now is the 3d printer.
