New Hobby Time – CNC for the DIY’er.
Photos below are of my Shapeoko3 CNC machine, cutting its first piece. Machine is sold by Carbide, includes the GRBL sender software, along with a beta version of CarbideCreate.
Commercial software test underway using Vcarve Desktop, to see if a commercial product is worth the additional cost for less of a learning curve to create the necessary toolpath code.
**and yes, the machine will cut foam, but at this time, cutting area is only 16×16 – an 24×48 upgrade is supposedly to be released early in 2016.
