CupCake CNC kit

Cupcake-Cnc 1
Bre Pettis & Zach Hoeken have started an open source hardware company (MakerBot Industries) devoted to making robots, their flagship kit is the $750 “CupCake CNC Kit“…

This is the whole kit of everything you need to build yourself an awesome CupCake CNC machine. Imagine: a leisurely day of fun with a couple friends, and you’ll have your very own 3D printer. The future is within your grasp.

This particular kit comes with:

  • The lasercut parts to assemble a CupCake CNC machine.
  • 3 x NEMA 17 motors to drive your machine
  • The nuts, bolts, and various hardware to assemble it.
  • The belts and pulleys for it to move things around.
  • All the bearings to make your machine nice and smooth.
  • 3rd Generation Electronics to drive it better, faster, and stronger.
  • A magnetized, detachable build platform, as well as 10 foam build beds to print on.
  • A pinch-wheel Plastruder to make things in plastic with.
  • 5 lbs of ABS plastic. Its hard, its strong, its awesome. Same material that LEGOs are made out of.
  • All the cables to hook everything up
  • A power supply to run everything


As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
