What is CNC?
For the past seven years, I have
been working to solve the mysteries of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) and to bring the
cost of computer controlled machines down to where the home shop can afford them. There
are many secrets about CNC but it is time to expose them so that the capabilities and
power of computer controlled machines are available to all. This information goes long way
to simplify and share the knowledge of low cost CNC. The information will provide an
overview of " Computer Numerical Control (CNC)".
To automate your shop with CNC, all you need is a computer, shareware Computer Aided Designing (CAD) software, CNC/CAM software, an electronic translator (see glossary) with drivers and a mechanism using readily available surplus stepper motors.
