What was your biggest project ever? Answered
What's your proudest, best, biggest, project you ever made or in the middle of making. Do not post of what you're planning to make because every can plan, but few can make ;). My proudest, biggest, most expensive thing that I'm making right now is a CNC machine, I'm about 50% done with the power supply (~37 volts at 8 amps, and 12 volts at 2 amps, for driving stuff like fans, total cost? about 60-70 dollars), about 75% done with the electronics (I've made 3 PicStep boards, all that's left on them is to solder on the pic microcontroller, which is comming in the mail, for 3 controller boards was about 30-40 dollars. The 4-axis breakout board, for future improvement, cost about 10 dollars to make). The stepper motors are 297oz/in so it's going to be beastly :). I've soldered well over 600 joints. I've etched 5 boards, some didn't come out well, drilled over 600 holes. Total time spent so far? about 10-15 hours. Can't imagine all of the work of actually building the main frame of the cnc router, but it'll all pay off. Not bad for the age of 13.
