 +====== V-Slot Profile CNC Machine ======
 +
 +Due to low tolerances on the wooden CNC frame (see below) compared to the High Accuracy most members will require for projects such as PCBs or Aluminium Panels, we've decided to proceed with the CNC project using V-Slot profiles with ACME drive. We plan to use the stepper motors and drivers and the Beaglebone black previously intended for the wooden CNC.
 +
 +The profiles and ACME threads will be purchased shortly by one of our members and construction should begin next month. We hope to get it running by the end of this summer (2018). Construction will take place at the weekly [[groups:​diy_synth_group|DIY Synth Group]]. ​
 +
 +Parts we still need include:
 +  * A suitable spindle motor, collet and drill bits.
 +  * Aluminium Gantry & Joining plates, stepper mounts. (We may have these cut on someone else's CNC).
 +  * A Dust shield made of Acrylic or other transparent material.
 +
 +If you have these materials and wish to donate them you can [[:​contact|contact us]] or take part in the discussion over at [[https://​forum.gmsn.co.uk/​t/​cnc-router/​621/​2]].

 +====== Wooden CNC Machine ======
 +
 +Recently we had someone contact us via the website to very kindly donating various tools and components. A volunteer collected the donation, which contained among other useful things some stepper motors. A good friend very kindly donated the shell of a CNC machine:

 +{{ :​projects:​cnc-barebones.jpg?​nolink |}}
 +
 +Further to this, we have:
 +  * A suitable power supply (donated by Kenny D)
 +  * An arduino mega, ramps board and various stepper drivers (donated by Martin McG)
 +  * [[https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​BeagleBoard#​BeagleBone_Black|BeagleBone Black]] plus [[http://​www.probotix.com/​wiki/​index.php/​PBX-BB|Probotix PBX-BB]] board, kindly donated by Anderw B.
 +
 +A CNC machine will allow people to build things in the Electron club, for example, circuit boards cut from copper plate, among other things. [[https://​www.youtube.com/​embed/​_PfoMhFJXfk|This video]] is a reasonable primer on the subject.
 +
 +The current plan is to hold an event on a Saturday were we put all this together to build a CNC machine. Initially, for testing purposes, we'll have a pen so it will draw things. The remainder of the components required should be in the room, somewhere. Later we'll figure out which route to go for drilling (dremel, brushless spindle etc). 
 +
 +The details of when this will happen are pending, please watch this space and the mailing list.
 +
 +Should you have any questions, or wish to donate related equipment please [[:​contact|contact us]].
