It’s Alive… and long overdue!

Well after a very long (almost one year) hiatus my build is complete. I apologize for having big intentions but not following through very well. Well over the past couple of nights I decided that I needed to just get after it and get it done. There really wasn’t much left, however I was trying to video every step along the way. In between work and family, the video part just became too daunting and kept putting off the build because I had to wait for the video equipment to be available and it was when I wasn’t, etc.

I do plan to go back and add a little post-build commentary on the design and construction and hopefully provide some useful knowledge for those attempting the build. However, with V2 on the horizon, it may or may not be as useful as it was once thought! 🙂

Here is a quick video of the DIYLILCNC in action. I quickly and crudely affixed a Sharpie to the z-cart and loaded the spiral example from the EMC2 samples and let it run…. well not quite that easily. I did have some learning curve to the homing of axis and just giving a quick crash course in CNC in general. Here is the first CNC to be performed! I don’t know about you but I was quite excited about it coming together!
