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.

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
