Introduction: How to Build a DIY CNC Router Machine (Simple and Cheap)
***NOTE: I will be adding new videos as I progress in the build of this CNC DIY Router.
This is my design of a hobby CNC machine that I am planning to build. Instead of buying a new one or from a kit, I'm basing it on a 3-axis drawer slide design that uses stepper motors and threaded rods as the actuators, and runs via inexpensive stepper drivers controlled by an Arduino UNO unit.
I am currently in the process of building this, and hope to offer step-by-step videos and Instructables tutorials along the way, and on my blog, called http://MakeItWithJason.com (for the CNC posts, visit here)
I'm hoping to use it for several projects I have down the road--perhaps even to cut pieces for them! I want to use it for cutting wood, metal, plastic, foam, and maybe even for cutting intricate pieces into meat (just kidding).
