John Park’s Workshop: CNC Machine Kit Build @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit

I put together a 2’x3′ CNC machine from CNC Routerparts — here’s a timelapse of it. It was about a two day build, (and lots of fun, I love assembling a well designed and nicely documented kit!) condensed here to about ten minutes. Next, I’ll be building a dust collection system for it.

I’m using it to make medium scale pieces from wood, MDF, plastic, and aluminum. The first thing I cut with it was the “PCB” and letter/logo engraving for this gigantic Adafruit Metro XXL.

If you’d like the full experience, here’s the unboxing as well:


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. And where can we get this kit? Will it come with a laser head and a 3d print head? so we can use it as a cnc router, plotter, 3d printer and laser cutter?
