Step 1: Video of CNC Machine Working
Step 2: Material Required
1)Arduino Nano x1
2)Old DVD writer x2
3)Motor Driver (L293D) x2
4)16 pin IC socket x2
5) Veroboard doted x1
or you can make pcb
6)Male header & Female header
7)Female USB (For power the motors) or you can use 9v jack
8)Female Jumper wires
10) BO motor clamp
11)1 Servo motor
12) Double sided tape
Step 3: Cutting & Drilling Acrylic Sheet
1pcs 12"x6" (Fore base)
2pcs 1.5"x7" (For X-Axis Stand)
1pcs 3"x3" (For Writing base)
3pcs 1.5"x3"(For Moving part of X-Axis & Y-Axis and also for pen holder)
8pcs .5"x,5" (For specer)
Marke for drilling then drill it
Step 4: Extract X-Axis & Y-Axis From Old DVD Writer
Step 5: Solder Wire With Stepper Motor.
Step 6: Attach 1.5"x 3" Sheet With Moving Part of X-Axis and Y-Axis by Using Glue Gun
