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

9) Nuts

10) BO motor clamp

11)1 Servo motor

12) Double sided tape

13)Pen

14)Acrylic sheet

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

Step 7: Make Circuit Board

Make a circuit board using Dotted vero board

or

you can design a PCB ..

If you don't know how to desin pcb check this

Step 8: Make a Pen Holder

Cut the DVD writer Shuter Mechanism

Attach Servo and connect with the Gear

and also connect 1.5"x3" sheet with moving part and also glue the pencil compass to hold the pen...

Step 9: Assembling the Machine

Assemble all the parts as shown in Pictures ...

Step 10: Connection With Board

Step 11: Software Part

Download YOBOTS Project CNC.zip file from below

-->Open-CNC_Machine_Arduino_Code and upload the code to Arduino

-->Open- gcode_executer_For_CNC_Machine and run it

press "p" to select COM Port;

press "g" to Upload g code:

Some G code sample are given in the project file

or

if you want to create own G code watch my Tutorial
