its broke, needs a ramps+mega combo

8EjnffL.jpg

original body came from a MYDIYCNC that was left on a beach.
now try the software side.

TODO

  • z stepper motor is broken - nema17 replacement need to install.
  • connect the dremel to the RAMPS board
  • limit switch
  • z-probe - repetier z-probing

software

there are usually several programs in the process.

  • create the artwork (inkscape for 2D, XXX for 3D)
  • generate the toolpath/gcode (pycam, ....)
  • cnc controller, to send the gcode


cnc controller

got it working with grbl controller on windows

universal gcode sender
