I know it's been done before, but I wanted it myself.
I have completed about 98% of the physical build. Just a couple loose ends to finish by the coming weekend.
All 3 Axis' are built, and it's very exciting to have to foundation finished. I will be adding the electronics in Feb/Mar of 2011, but Xmas is coming soon. I will be posting video soon once I have the lead screws and bearings installed.
Following this week's efforts I need to dive into CAD (haven't used it before), but I have some time =P
Following this project I have intentions of a 3D scanner, and then the Cupcake CNC machine from www.makerbot.com. Then my prototyping efforts should be complete.
Completed mechaqnical construction. All 3 Axis' are function through their full range of movement.
Received three of the required stepper motors for christmas, along with the I/O board. I have attached the motors, as well as modified an enclosure to house the I/O & Driver boards.
Remaining = Pwr Sply, Stepper Drivers, Couplings, Router.
Electronics installed, and configured.
Have successfully ran first automation test =)
Now I have to better understand the use of the tool, and the CAD software.
At least it's finished =D
