    hello there
    down below is my cnc projet
    hope u like it.
    ===============================================
    There’s nothing more greater freeing than to owning your own CNC machine for your prototyping needs. But CNC machines can be super expensive for a school/college student as i am, the only next best option is for you to make your own CNC machine with recycled part like stepper motors from old industrial Xerox printers and using simple rotary bearings as the axis sliding mechanism. Here I have done exactly that. I got the inspiration from the popular CNC company called X-carve from inventables.

    I have two video showing the whole build and the milling process of a model aircraft that was milled out from the CNC that I have built.

    Part 1 the whole built


    Part 2 milling from the cnc

    ===============================================

    hope you guys will like my hardwork. let me know if you have any questions.
