Just built an open source CNC machiene

Chris EllerbyChris Ellerby Los Angeles Admin
My X-Carve CNC by Inventables was delivered a couple weeks ago, and I've managed to assemble it and make a few test cuts.

I will now start on the fun adventure of customizing and hacking it.  I'll be making a custom dust extraction system for it, as well as building a Raspberry PI2 server to control/interface with it.



I will also be redoing all the wiring, which is currently in a bit of a sorry state.

For the control software I've been looking into ChiliPeppr, which is an open source web-based CNC framework.  It's modular, which means I can modify existing modules or develop my own.  Here's my custom workspace:  http://chilipeppr.com/vex

Anyone here work with CNC routers?
