The DIY LILCNC

By on February 22, 2014

This is a pretty old (2011) project, but we never covered it.
Maybe a post on Open Source CNC machines is mature!

Did you know that our 3Drag now sports CNC features?

The DIYLILCNC Project

The DIYLILCNC project is a free & open-source set of plans for an inexpensive, fully functional 3-axis CNC mill that can be built by an individual with basic shop skills and tool access.

CNC devices are used to fabricate physical objects with a high degree of precision. Some CNC devices, including the DIYLILCNC, feature a gantry-mounted cutting tool (like a router) that can move in two or more directions. The operation of the tool is controlled by a computer, which is tasked with translating a digital design into actual tool movement.
