Hacking Up a Laser CNC

September 3rd, 2010 by otto_pjm

We have been working on converting a CNC inspection machine into a CNC capable of using multiple tools.

CyberOptic CNC

The Y axis is only supported on one side, so the tools will need to be light unless, we can devise another support. At our last open house on Wednesday, we had a great hacker collaboration and not only got the machine to draw with a Sharpie, but trying some engraving with jtbarclay’s blueray burner. Here’s a shot of the engraving in progress.
