Our plan is to build a 5-axis CNC machine (Rainnea type or X.Y.Z.B.C) made with as much openbuilds parts as possible. The configuration of this machine is due of its size, another configuration will demand more space and more parts. We also are going to try MK3 PCB from planet-cnc, azteeg x3 pro from pannucat and Bam&Dice arduino STK kit from Mr Konrad Meyer(2printbeta) as they are the most robust PCB boards we could find in the market and could be modified from its firmware. If any of the above mentioned does not give us a satisfactory result we are kin to develop a PCB that supports advanced kinematics in order to run the machine. Software for control the machine, generate and simulate g-code is part of our project, our plan is to create something to be run with open source CAD Blender, there's a huge part made by BlenderCam team we want to contribute with.
As this project is in its earliest steps, further information will be added every week.
Parts are still in transit =)
We hope we can upload some sketches soon...
Any help that could be provided will be much appreciated.
PROTODERA 5-axis CNC machine
We are a team representing private industry and public university all concerned about community. In the place i'm from we face problems related to prototyping industry, there's no accesibility to it, not because there is not machines to work with but the costs are really high if i want to make a single piece of any idea in order to develop a concept, our students get their degree but never were able to try any of the Hass or 3d systems machines available as it seems they need a PhD.

Reason for this Build- Maker community needs open source advanced kynematics machines
- Tyred of wasting money on expensive CAM
-Demostrate People does not need a PhD to run a 5-axis
