Come on down to the Seattle Mini Maker Faire at the Seattle Center Saturday and Sunday June 8th and 9th 2013 – I’ll be giving demos of the Shapeoko CNC mill featured on this site. See you there.
My first goal with this site is to get info up on building the shapeoko kit. What is it? An inexpensive CNC milling machine.
I’ve managed to start with the basic $200 mechanical only kit. From there I bought the parts, scavenged from the junk bin, etc. and got the unit working.
Wanting to use Linux, I rewrote a neglected cross-platform gcode sending tool, which has been posted to github.
I am now in the middle of using the shapeoko on one of my projects, a rebuild of an old dobsonian telescope.
