Darcy Whyte gives out a bunch of business cards, so instead of stamping them all by hand what better way than to make a simple CNC stamping machine:
I’ve been making business cards out of record covers from LP vinyl (and many other things). They come out pretty unusual (good) but it’s a fair amount of work to stamp information on them (bad).
So I am now using a CNC machine to operate the stamp. For this I manually wrote the g-code (see below) using NCPlot. I must say, NCPlot really speeds things up.
Here you can see the CNC acting as a robot to stamp my cards. So I’m able to make plenty of cards quickly.
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.
