....before you ask - Yes - I aim to be in Tuesday.
I have been watching YouTubes about hacking CD/DVD drives to make CNC
machines and fancy a go at making something like the plotter in.....
Micro Mini CNC Plotter - Part 1 - XY Using DVD Steppers
Micro Mini CNC Plotter - Part 2 - Testing Hardware and Software
I have the drives and have started stripping them down.
I have a lot to learn! Any guidance would be welcome.
- What design software do you recommend? I have 3D builder (came with
Windows 10), Sketch Up (free version), Inkscape and Fritzing.
- What software do I need to make the Gerber(???) files?
- What Arduino motor sheild? The ADAfruit one only runs 2 steppers -
might need a 3rd for future expansion?
