Nice skittles sorter

The parts are 3D printed out. Its a pretty compact sorter and works well from the video. It uses an arduino for the controller.

Laser Engraving Leather

OK this is something I haven’t thought of doing. I have one of those cheap little laser engravers…great for burning on wood under 3 inches in diameter. Never thought about trying leather…. https://www.instructables.com/id/Laser-Engraving-Leather-Hat-Accessories/

Nice CNC build

This is the author’s second version. The frame is 3D printed out and the build can do plotter, drill, and laser based work. Looks sharp too. https://www.instructables.com/id/TRIPLE-CNC-MACHINE-UPGRADE/

Make a snowglobe, with LEDs

OK the authors take a different approach to the mason jar snow globe by adding in LED and a 3D printed base to the mix. Looks pretty nice. https://www.instructables.com/id/LED-Mason-Jar-Snow-Globe/

Interesting dust collector build, good for mini CNC’s

Nice build, the author 3D printed as simple dust cyclone for a mini CNC. This could be built up more by adding a bigger waste container. I like the use of PC fan too (quieter than most vaccums). https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3961313

Nice add to christmas lights

The author basically uses a CNC cutter to cut out “wings” to add to the lights. Nice build overall. https://www.instructables.com/id/Navi-Christmas-Tree-Lights/

Nice CNC plotter

Only issue is part of it is homemade, but the author is using some rather expensive parts with it (pro couplers, ballbearing rod, etc). So that adds alot to the cost. https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-CNC-Writing-Machine-Using-GRBL/

Cheap big CNC build

The author did a nice job on the build. Mostly from wood cut to fit. I like the rail build. Oh and his zero in plate. https://www.instructables.com/id/Low-Cost-DIY-CNC-Router/

Making Strandbeest legs

Nice build, you can print out the templates to make them…me, the templates look like they could be adapted to CNC them out. https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Build-a-Strandbeest-Leg/
