I am proud to announce our new project here on Kickstarter. The CNC Building Blocks.
It was a long time in the making. We had learned greatly from the struggles of producing the Modular Desktop CNC Machine here on Kickstarter. Certain parts like the Z-axis took 20 hours each between casting, milling, and assembly. We want to change that. Other parts like the linear sliders were prone to missteps during installation which would leave them tighter than required... which limited machine performance.
Our new parts will make the assembly of the machines easier, quicker, and better. They will mean that production of CNCs takes hours instead of weeks or months. If you are a current backer, we highly suggest pledging to the cause. The parts will be a huge upgrade to your current machines. If you didn't pledge but you are now looking for a CNC machine, we would love to see you pledge toward a reward. Kits will be available after the project is finished that will allow you to also get the parts to build the machine.
Additionally. We have developed new CNC Electronics for our machines. These electronics use the best in high powered stepper motor circuitry that will really get your machine moving. It is a considerable upgrade in terms of performance and will also increase the speed of production for us. Despite having to assemble the boards ourselves, it will remove a large amount of waiting on shipment of finished boards from suppliers. Also a great upgrade for those with our existing machines.
I hope to see your support on the new project, and even if you aren't interested in the Building Blocks or Electronics, I'd still love to see your support with a $1-$25 contribution toward the project. Anything will help us meet our goal and would allow us to deliver these high quality CNC parts to people all over the world.
