My First Drawing

This is my first attempt at drawing anything with my toaster and a pen.

The red/blue spot in the middle was the first go, and the second set of blue lines are from me learning to control it. Circles hopefully start tomorrow!

CNC Machine Construction

I spent the bulk of today working on the CNC Laser today to cut out all of the pieces necessary to create my CNC machine. Then, this evening, I took some time to fasten it all together. I sit here this evening, in front of my own, man powered CNC machine. Next step, set up the stepper motors so it can really be computer numerically controlled!

Step, Step, Step it Up!

For the time being, these will be the stepper motors I am going to attempt to work with. They look like they will work well. As needed, they are omnidirectional, so they will be able to move my piece back and forth. Here we go!
