If you often messing with some models, and models of electronics, you will certainly come in handy such a thing as a small milling machine with CNC controlled (CNC).
Startup from Bar Smith and Tom Beckett, ready to give people different passionate hobby, the opportunity to purchase such a machine is not much emptying your wallet. Another former students have developed a miniature CNC router called Makesmith CNC. Car worth just $ 195 and is made up of “semi-finished”, ie, “ready to eat” components like training board Arduino Mega.
The machine can handle objects up to 22.86 x 22.86 x 5 inches. Makesmith CNC creators explain: “Our kit contains everything you need to build your own desktop CNC milling machine except Dremel. The set comes even a set of body parts (cut on a laser cutter) – need to raise the frame and set the moving parts. All necessary metal parts, Arduino-compatible microcontroller, three servo and three boards magnetic encoders, all necessary bolts and wires “.
“In order to collect this set, you’ll need a soldering iron (soldering experience is not needed) and some glue. Assembly will take a maximum of a couple of hours. “
Currently Makesmith CNC – a project on Kickstarter, but it has already collected enough money (at time of writing – 5.5 times more than the required amount) to go from fundraising to production.
