I build a software and system to attach to a CNC machine for placing SMT components on a product I am manufacturing. The project involves a GUI that runs on Mac or PC, which sends commands via USB to a Parallax Propeller processor board which drivers 3 steppers and a vacuum.
Thought some might enjoy. Hope you like it.
