CNC Drawing Machines can do incredible things, this simple modified machine even knows how to draw the Powerpuff Girls! This machine uses G-code to create art, is extremely versatile, and is very accurate. “Since the software and hardware are both open source, this makes for an ideal platform on which to build any other CNC machines as well.” No matter what you use your CNC Machine for, let MachineMetrics help you decrease downtime and increase efficiency in manufacturing. What machines do you use in your manufacturing, and what incredible things do they do for you?

ROBOT DRAWS USING ROBUST CNCSource: http://hackaday.com

While initially developed for use in large factory processes, computer numeric control (CNC) machines have slowly made their way out of the factory and into the hands of virtually anyone who wants one. The versatility that these machines have in automating and manipulating a wide range of tools while at the same time maintaining a high degree of accuracy and repeatability is invaluable in any setting. As an illustration of how accessible CNC has become, [Arnab]’s drawing robot uses widely available tools and a CNC implementation virtually anyone could build on their own. Read More
