CNC Mill Nearly Complete

posted Aug 10, 2011, 6:30 AM by Tinkering Techie
I haven't had as much time as I would like to work on it, but I've still been slowly finishing the CNC mill. I've finished everything except dust collection and a horizontal clamping system. I'll post pictures soon, but the shop is too messy right now. I'll also be adding a full write up on the CNC Mill project page in the next few weeks. The software side of things hasn't changed much. I wrote a program that generates g-code for dovetail joints and once I've fine tuned it I'll make it available in the downloads section. I also wrote a rough version of the general purpose CAM software and used it to create the limit switch mounts. It worked well for that particular application, but I've gone back to the drawing board to make it more accurate and improve performance.
