CNC Drawing Machine

Hello all and welcome to my first tutorial! Today I am showing you how to design a drawing CNC using as primary Hardware components a Digilent Arty board, DC Motors and RC Servos. Important Note: Because I am currently working on this project I will show you how to build the CNC and how to […]

Commonly Used Bits for CNC Milling Operations

In addition to CNC milling being used for metal objects, it is commonly the preferred choice for woodworking. With this method of operation, there are many times when wood cutting is required but compared to metal fabrication, producing holes takes less pressure. For that reason, drill bits are quite different for the two different types […]

History of CNC Milling

CNC milling is sometimes referred to as CNC machining, which operates using commands or G codes programmed from an internal computer. CNC, the acronym for Computer Numerical Control, consists of alphanumeric codes, each leading to very specific functions performed by a machine. In the 1950s, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and United States Air Force […]

What is CNC?

CNC is the acronym for Computer Numerical Control. It is an outgrowth of the older term “NC”, which stands for just “Numerical Control”. It refers to the idea of controlling machine tools via computer. CNC Machines are robots of a sort. With the older “NC” term, a computer need not be involved. The machine might […]

How To Build A CNC Machine

I am a regular guy. I do not have a huge fancy CNC machine at work. I do not even have a small milling machine or a lathe. My friends do not have them either, so I have nobody to machine some custom parts for me. I have inquired with several shops and individuals who […]
