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:


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.

  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?
