Interesting CNC build

could be a bit more complicated of a CNC to control, as you need to handle the table spinning. But it does save on number of motors and other parts a standard CNC would use. The write up is not … Continue reading

Make a laser chaser bot for your dogs

I have thought about doing this myself. Pretty simple build to do but looks like the laser is not too random in its movement. Thought you can change the code to be more random. https://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-Controlled-Laser-Dog-Chaser-Toy/

Make your own carbon fiber tubes

I never realized how much these things cost. but apparently the ribbon for carbon fiber is pretty cheap, so the author took and arduino, some steppers, and made his own tube maker. Clever build overall. https://hackadaycom.files.wordpress.com/2019/01/carbon_feat.jpg?w=800
