CNC Controller Board v2

As I said previously, I have been slowly developing my second CNC Machine, TheMaker2. To control the new CNC machine I developed a new board based on a PIC16LF877A since the L297‘s that I used on the first CNC controller board that I designed can be quite expensive here in Portugal and I had some…




Homemade CNC: TheMaker2

Hi! As I previously said in my first post about my first Homemade CNC: TheMaker1, I was slowly developing a bigger, faster (didn’t accomplish this part yet) and more robust CNC. Well, the development phase has finally come to an end and it is finally ready! 😀 In order to build a more rigid structure I…




CNC Controller Board

In this post I’ll make a short description of the CNC controller boards that I’m making available for you to download and use to control your own CNC. I’m posting 3 version of the same board, but only the first one has been really tested and has been working inside my CNC Control Box for…




Homemade CNC: TheMaker1

Hi! In the following lines I’ll present a project that has taken a very long time to complete: my homemade CNC machine. From the first tests and tryouts with various materials to the actual machine 2 years have passed. More important stuff always made me delay the development of the CNC. However, I estimate that…




CNC Software Toolchain for Linux

Hi! Some time ago I made a post about My Home Lab where I showed a small CNC that I built. In the same post I said that someday I would post some details on the software toolchain and that’s exactly what I’m going to do in this post.   The process of using a…




My home Lab

Hi! This time I’ll show you my home Lab which is where I usually tear things apart and sometimes make some electronic or electromechanical devices. So, my lab is composed by two workbenches: one for computer programming and electronics and another one for the hard work (cutting, drilling, hammering, etc.).     In the first…
