An open source instruction and plan set from the digital design model & files of this working 5 axis CNC machine. Read more
This project's funding goal was not reached on .
Project is climbing slowly . . .
Don't want to be negative here, but just a realist & state the obvious . . . The curve is not looking too promising . . . I suppose I thought there were more people out there who would be into it. I suppose I also thought that there were more people familiar with 5 axis machines & CNC in general. I even have this posted in 3 different places on CNCzone.com, I think the percentage is smaller than I thought. There's still a chance it could take off though, still a chance.
It seems to me that maybe most of society may still be in consumer mode & this project is all about being a producer . . . although if people did get it they would find out just how amazing, economical, and within reach CNC technology is.
I never worked with, had or saw a CNC machine (except through CNCzone & other online resources) before I designed & built my first one . . . I'll share all I can about how they work, what they can do, & how to make them, I have several build logs on CNCzone:
Plus there are many more builds there on CNCzone, many much nicer than mine - take a look around if you haven't already.
my website: (the following are all flash based sites, so Ipad will have trouble):
(+ a few more on my site)
plus this short primer that I made for a Methods & Materials Class I taught:
Well, I'll keep plugging away, trying to share as much info as I can . . . If there's anything specific you want to know about, let me know . . . if I don't know I can suggest where to find out maybe.
Thanks again for your support everyone!Cheers,
