    DIY Arduino CNC Drawing Machine

    hello,ok the design looks nice ....however this drawing machine has been built many times,simply by setting up the dvd chasis in the correct orientation and most od us who built one used junk parts from our junkbox...Yes we purchased the arduino and my question is ...What have you done thats different????

  • Dotter - Huge Arduino Based Dot Matrix Printer

    I am mistaken ,I use correl draw (trace feature) to convert to dfx and f-engrave to go from dfx to gcode, I use arduino grbl to run the machine

    It depends on the source drawing ,most of the stuff I do is lines an circles, however I do use F-engrave to convert bmp or jpeg ect to dfx,I have experimented with the drawing apps to mod a line drawing to dots,alot of clacking but it works ,one difference is my machine uses a stepper drive for the z axis whereby yours uses a solonide....

  • Dotter - Huge Arduino Based Dot Matrix Printer

    Excellent project and the way you presented it is fantastic,some years ago I converted an old HP pen plotter to stepper motors and GRBL,its 24 inches wide,I use it for my art work,and I know from experience what you did was not an easy project and you did great keep up the great work....WCH

    Very good, Excelence my friend but why not use GRBL,just replace the servo with a small stepper and put a cam on the shaft,then up and down are just a number of steps in forward and reverse direction

    Create a 3D Printed 3D Fractal

    Great lesson,now it would be great if we could load all the pics from the voxel stack into an app and convert the edges to gcode for each pic,stack the code together insert the z info now we go straight to the 3d printer,as the 3d slicer is doing the reverse of what we did,we generated the image ,then sliced it up ,then stuck it back together again,only to run it through anouther slicer.

    Also this will be great for the liquid resin type 3d printer,after all the bugs are out.

    this is the best instructable yet ,you did a bang up job,just as stated everything works perfect,now finally the hardware and software has caught up to where I was 15 years ago,trying to figure out how to make the thing in the screen an object I can hold and show others,Thanks alot ,big handshake THANKS...WCH

    Great idea for the hubs,this will also work if using 2 x 4 or 2 x 6

    please ,an instructable is used so that others will learn ,please use the correct tools for the job, a hacksaw is used to cut metal not wood as the teeth in the saw blade are set at a different angle,I am sure home depot or lowes would have arranged to have a loaner on site if someone had asked a mitre saw would have been better and showed better in the pics.

    the HUB method shown below is fantastic,this is what I thought the instructable was doing
