Strand Design builds DIY CNC ...

Posted on May 03, 2011 by strandblog

After being inspired by the lovely folks at DIYLILCNC, We decided to take the plunge and build our own computer numeric controlled machine. It is definitely not a process for the faint of heart; we ordered our kit from Build Your CNC and were a bit taken aback by the large numbers of boxes, tubes and packages that started to show up at our doorstep. This was not going to be a simple weekend project.

We did manage to succeed in building the CNC, and are pretty thrilled with the results. You can takebelow, and view a video of the "maiden voyage" of our CNC by clicking here.
