Milling Ukuleles with CNC Router Parts #Makerfaire2016
Make shared this video depicting the Milling of Ukuleles with CNC Router Parts at Maker Faire Bay Area 2016 via Youtube.
The CNC Router Parts team has prepared a great demo of CNC routing technology for Maker Faire Bay Area 2016 and they are going to be sharing it with a number of lucky attendees. Instead of a small little demo piece, CNC Router Parts are creating full size working ukuleles all weekend, using their collection of computer controlled machines.
The ukulele bodies and necks are each being milled layer by layer from solid blocks of maple while attendees watch on. The team brought a plasma cutter also to cut the sound boards (in awesome Makey patterns) from steel for the top of the ukes. The bridge and fretboards are both being milled from aluminum finishing off the project.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
