My first attempt to build a hobby CNC to have it works the way I desire.
The most important part were related to take fully control of the CNC where I was trying to build something that doesn't exist, by building a customize firmware and software to interact with the hardware. The fully customizable Marlin Firmware (thanks to the marlin people) has been chosen for this purpose, and the availability of powerful marlin ready mainboard/hardware on the market. WorkBee hardware were fine tune in a few way that make sense to me (i.e. lead screw pull enforce modification and lead screw vibration damper).
