REPLICATING THE FUNCTIONALITY OF AN INDUSTRIAL LASER CUTTER ON A LOW-COST HOME-BUILT SYSTEM

Adafruit 317

REPLICATING THE FUNCTIONALITY OF AN INDUSTRIAL LASER CUTTER ON A LOW-COST HOME-BUILT SYSTEM (PDF). Thanks Freddie!

I have just got the results from this project I submitted as an A-Level project in the UK and got an A* for it, so though I would share it 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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.

  1. Anyone know what CNC machine he’s using as a base?

  2. At first I thought it was the DIYLILCNC v1 that was demonstrated at Siggraph a few years ago but he said it is a MIT based system. Anyway, the DIYLILCNC is opensource and they just released plans for v1.0.2 over at http://diylilcnc.org/ You can also buy kits from them.

  3. Hey
    I am actually using a self built base from the following Instructables article: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-a-Three-Axis-CNC-Machine-Cheaply-and-/
    Thanks for your comments on my article!
