DAGU CNC mill controller - first prototype

I've been developing a CNC controller for DAGU. The project originally started late 2012 but got shelved because of other projects. Now we've dusted it off and plan to finish it in the next 6 months. Unfortunately blog post don't support video so watch the video that explains the basics by clicking on the link.

Starting SuperDroidBot Blog

So much is happening so fast, I'm starting this blog to document what is going on with the bot, so I can look back on my thoughts from time to time and see how they developed.  Others are more than welcome to participate!  I'll start by throwing in a diagram and some fun video!
