We had a great meeting last night. We had over a dozen people working together to wire up a CNC control box. At one point we had three soldering irons going at the same time. Here is the pile of parts we started with.
Here are some people wiring the box. A really nice job was done using wire ferruls wherever we could. How many hands can fit in that little box?
Here is the nearly completed box.
Thanks to Chris, Matt, Aeva, Patrick, Donald, Steve, Jason & Alex, Cat, John, Will, Gabe, Norm, Allen and Colin. Next week we will be testing the motors, adding limit switches and configuring the software.
We will start with Mach3, then switch to EMC2 when we find a dedicated PC for that. Chris and John I think mentioned they do time at Free Geek. I am sure they could find a little PC.
Special thanks to Automation Technologies Inc for giving/lending all the parts.
