I have recently joined CNCzone, and have a deep interest in CNC Machines etc.
I have read a few posts, and am very impressed by the amount of skills many members have in making their own machines, or in adapting existing machines to suit their needs.
However, I am trying to obtain more info slowly to get a better understanding of these type of machines.
I work full time, and it does not make things easier, also living alone makes it even harder, as there are always many chores to perform such as cleaning, washing, etc.
However, I would like to find out from readers how they got started and their experience in making a CNC machine from scratch. I would like to built a 3 axis CNC machine, controlled by a computer. I like to make an engraver first, and perhaps something more complicated later. Although I have seen some examples, I want to learn about the pitfalls and experiences other people had in making one. Can anyone help by suggesting something?
Any help would be much appreicated.
