preety cool toy
Just finished my mini pen drawing machine made from old computer parts. Two cdrom drives and one floppy drive.
Please check it out and leave comments. It's my first machine so i'm pretty proud.

I have a fancy design that will draw better graphics and text but none of my demo dxf to g-code converters will do the job. Pretty much all of the demo converters strip out the detail.

Thanks. It doesn't have the strength to do much but it was built for almost nothing with the intent on learning how to run cnc software, learn about stepper motors and what gcode is.
excellent learning tool!

GREAT INFO THANKS
Get the free version of sketchup and use phlatscript from here. All free and works great.
With free plugins sketchup can save and load DXF files
also Partkartlooks interesting
This is a very neat piece of work . I have not been active for sometime on the zone. I have a table about 90% completed all I need to buy is the controller board. I see you made a sugestion as to what to look for- any other pointers. I was thinking of getting the on at tthe hobby website for 65.00
It's funny you should ask. I just updated my web page a few days ago with a new software and config video along with the data sheet for the controller. Now you should have everything you need to get going.

Sorry I have not commented sooner. I have an online store where I sell wood products Christmas season is upon us so I've been a busy elf.
I went a head and bought a controller kit from HobbyCNC so when life slows down I will put it together. I have an AT power supplies from old computer so I will use one to make a power supply. I have found diags and directions on doing that.
I like your machine be cause it is small and maybe used a a miniture set cncrouter.
Thank you for your input!!
