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.
