    Thanks for posting Khalid. Couldn't get the link on that site to work and it seems others are having difficulty making it work as well. Did you actually see the instructions on his link? Did you download them? If so, I'd like a copy if you don't mind. I can imagine these instructions are pretty simple given the photo on the page you posted. I'd like to see if/how he interfaced the speed control for the sewing machine motor... Thanks again for the post. -Doug

    That machine started on this site here http://130.94.182.150/

    I think I posted about the machine a year or 2 ago, I don't see the machine now, but I know this is the actual site.

    They have an email in the link above.

    You won't actually have an embroidery machine. You will have a plotter that draws (sews) on fabric, but not true embroidery. Embroidery is actually more like a 4 axis machine than a 2 axis machine. In addition to X and Y, you have needle up/down positioning AND tensioning. It's not just speed control. I've been doing machine embroidery for years.

    There is a machine out there than uses a regular sewing machine for quilting purposes, and that machine is a PC Quilter (www.pcquilter.com) and I have one of those too. I know the guy who invented that machine and it's pretty nice. He created his own command language for it too. Similar to G-Code, but optimized for functionality needed for quilting. That machine is pretty much just x and y and does outlining or plotting type work.

    Since I own a singer futura 200 (I think) I can say for sure for the 700 bucks it costs to buy one. Just buy one. You get the software you will need and that to do it.

    The thing for sure works. Not the fastest enbroider machine but for home use and if you are not dependant on time doing batch jobs (ie load string let it run a pattern while you are washing dishes ect ect. Let it stop change string when you have time. Then it's a great machine.

    Since long..I am behind the idea how to build quilting machine with CNC controller..Attached video shows the simple machine controlled through CNC with Mach software..

    I want to make the same..what are the limitations??..

    I think it had the X and Y steppers/servos only...complete machine is mounted on rails...

    Default pcquilter

    Looks like that thing isnt much more than a sewing machine mounted on a xy table... should be pretty simple..Skate bearings and conduit pipe configuration on MDF. and you could use printer steppers as the drive motors...since the accuracy isnt a factor
