Hey guys, second instructable here. This time, I decided to have a Lego CNC machine. I had originally planned this for the makeitreal competition, and I thought the deadline had passed, but apparently not.
Anyway, I'll be updating this instructable as I make more progress on it. It won't be entirely done by the time the competition ends, but you should at least able to build the machine and control the axis (axii?)
There are 747 pieces total. The only non-Lego part is the drill bit.
2 lego NXT sets along with 4 touch sensors
Various other lego parts, specifically the gear-track pieces and worm gears, and probably more
A computer with LDD, or Lego Digital Designer
A drill bit to sacrifice
Some green floral foam
A little bit of time
When I finally make it, I'll put a video up here. Sorry it's not up now, I'm having a rough time finding the time to record it.
Anyway, on to the first step!
