CNC Machine II

This post records my favorite CNC machine I’ve ever built.It’s actually the third machine I built and it’s an improvement of the previous one.Since I’ve already had a machine before building this one so I have the ability to make more complicated parts which I wasn’t able to make before.My goal is to make a compact desktop CNC milling machine so that I can implement my electronics or mechanical projects easily.Before having a CNC machine,I had been soldering PCB using those prototyping board for almost two years.It usually took me several nights to solder a control board for my RC car and then took several more nights to debug the board.If the board has a severe problem,or I want to make some improvement,then I had to start over again and a week is gone.Such a bummer.After having a machine everything becomes so simple.I started to use EDA software to design a PCB and verify my idea.Some times I got a good idea then I can implement it and test it within a day.I also use Solidworks to work with Altium Designer because most of my projects are mechatronics ones.Importing the board into Solidworks and checking if it fits in the object makes design so easy and quick. 608 palabras más
