Welkom

Jy het die beste CNC router ontwerp gevind.
Jy kry ook die beste advies op hierdie forum.
Ek gebruik hierdie forum nie uit lojaliteit nie, maar omdat dit
die beste is op die internet. Dankie Gerald.

Op die oomblik maak ek maar net onderdele bymekaar en het nog
nie aktief begin bou nie. Julle sal nie glo watter waardevolle goed, firmas hier weg gooi nie. Gellukig het ek n vrou wat nie omgee hoe baie ek opgaar nie.

Groete

Message from Chris:

After I placed the message I realized that it would not be understand by everybody sorry for that.

Iím working for ***** here in Secunda in their telecoms department and my one hobby is a radio ham, Iím more of a listener and I do some electronic projects in my free time. Iím also trying to build flying model helicopters. There is the part where the cnc machine would come in handy.

Where do you start with the soft and hardware? Do you drive the x,y,z motors by parallel port or by pic or similar icís.

More info and pointers in the right direction would be highly appreciated.

Iím looking forward for your reply

Software:

Mach3 (see this thread) drives the machine from a standard desktop PC via the parallel port. Treats the CNC machine like a "super printer"

But, like any printer, you still need to design the thing that you want to print. For that you typically use standard CAD Software.

Hardware:

A good starting point to understand the hardware is in this thread.
