Hey guys!

I always wanted to make custom parts for my Robotics and RC projects (Quadcopter). While I was working on a Hexapod project I thought of making a CNC for cutting Aluminum sheets the way I wanted. So ... I was working a DIY CNC project past couple of months. Finally my CNC is alive and working Cheesy

Lets cut some Quadcopter frames now ...

Here is a pic :

DIY CNC Router / Mill Project - PCB engraving Test


And here is a test video of my CNC engraving my Initials on Copper Clad Cheesy

This look amazing... How long it take you for the planning and building?  Huh? Huh?
And approximate amount spent?  Huh? Huh?
You really have done a great job..  Clap Clap

Wow!
that's some cool beast.

I've always wanted to convert my tabletop vertical milling machine to cnc...but never had the courage to diy cnc it.
Now you've shown the path. perhaps its time to take the plunge.

Thanks! Well ... I had plans of making CNC from 2010 but did'nt gave it much attention. In April 2012 I took it seriously and started gathering info. In July 2012 .. I made a commitment to do it and started researching more aggressively and getting some help from pros overseas. Selecting and Acquiring 'parts' took a very long time - around 3 months. In november I started making the final design. Around 20th dec the assembly was done. Next I had designed my custom electronics which were bugged Sad Got industrial electronics and finally got it working. In Feb-2013 all setup and configuration stuff was finally over and ran some tests to see if CNC actually works like I wanted it to. And it worked Cheesy

Edit : The 'CNC' cost goes around 55K ... It might seem a bit high .. I'll try to lower the cost in 2nd Version and an ultra low-cost 3rd version.

Did you procure the stepper motors, lead screws and linear bearings from abroad or from the local market?
So how much did it all cost?

All of them are from local market. Had to contact a few manufacturers for Steppers and Lead Screws. Got lead screws manufactured from a nearby manufactrr but ended up not using those lead screws coz after some weeks after that I got stainless steel lead screws from Gulalwadi - Mumbai.

For parts like shafts and Linear Bearings also I had to contact local dealers & stockists.

Great work Power User, the video looks awesome.
I've been thinking of doing one from last year as well. I have all the stuff sitting in my drawers from controllers to couplings Cheesy...You post will ensure the motivation is kicked back in.

What motors, driver and controllers are you using? and software? Mach3 or LinuxCNC

This is amazing, we always dream to have a personal CNC.

Planning to make and sell low cost hobby cnc for the masses. I want to see a CNC in the house every robotics enthusiast , RC Hobbyists , DIYers etc.. in India. Just imagine what all things we can do if we all have mini CNC at our homes Cheesy Atm I am working on custom low cost parallel cnc breakout boards and stepper motor drivers.

Open to any suggestions , ideas , etc.. etc..

BTW ny1 into custom designed model rockets ?

Hello LastRites.
Thanks for interest shown in diy cnc.The details are as bellows.
Table size 600 x 400 mm.Cutting area 480 x 300 mm. 4.2 kg/cm Nema17 stepper motors.
135 watts spindle.Max tool dia 3.2 mm. 6mm dia leadscrew with 1 mm pitch gives 0.0025 mm /step. Accuracy 0.1 mm {Estimated} Can cut plastic,Hard wood up to 20 mm.Not tried on aluminium. No costly linear parts.X axis rides on aluminium sqaare tube with 606 ball bearings.
Y and Z axis rides on S S round tube with same bearings. Total 36 ball bearings are used.
The controller circuit is built on vero board using L297 / L298 and driven by lpt port.
Now Iam working on a open frame machine, which will be driven by 4 Nema 23 steppers. ie 2 motors on X axis. !000 watts trimmer router as spindle, sturdier steel frame and polymer bearing pads for linear motion.

Hi all,
I am back after a while. In mean time built this cnc machine for Rahul. Pictures of machine  and test patarn.
Some members want to know about cutting foam with soldering  iron.here are some tips. there is no knead to modify soldering iron in any way. simply remove any oxide buildup on the tip. tie a ordinary  needle or any thing such as straightened safety pin with bare copper wire on the tip and your done .Higher the wattage better it will cut.Many people use this technique to make  decoration in Ganpati festival.
Regards
S.K.Ratnaparkhi
