My last post talked about the CNC machine I built. This time, I have some pictures, and a little information I gained since last time. This will mostly be a gallery post.
|This is the design mine was based off of|
|This is how it came out (pretty different)|
|A Dremel from eBay (chosen for its cylindrical shape)|
|12 TPI lead screws (less blurry in real life)|
|Delrin Nut (chosen for strength and low friction) that fits the lead screws|
|Rails and structure|
|Motors, EasyDrivers, and other circuitry to interface to the computer|
These are the files I've produced and milled. They were made using cad.py, which I found here. I milled them using a 30º V bit, putting at a 0.01 inch depth, giving me a 0.017 inch cutting width. The material I'm cutting on is a "dog tag" from the school my brother and sister go to. On the other side, they have a symbol for theater or something, so you would receive one if you participated in the school play. They let me use theirs.
|Do-do-doo, do dodododooo... It's the Nyan Cat!|
|We did a couple of other dog tags, too|
|And here, of course, is my logo! A bit faint, but not too bad|
