Neuromaker CNC Router

The Nueromaker is ready to accept your G-code and drill for you!

This 1 foot by 3 foot CNC machine is controlled by a custom Ubuntu distro, LinuxCNC, which makes it as simple as booting up the machine, loading your gcode (with '.nc' extension), and pressing play. Of course, picking the right drill bit is important too!

Milling Machines (CNC Routers)

Our FabLab is currently equipped three different CNC (computer numerical control) machines, and they all work similarly: three motors move a drill bit along 3 axes (left/right, front/back, up/down) according to instructions sent to it by the computer. These machines can be used for a wide range of projects, from cutting your name into a 2x4, making molds for resin or latex, and even cutting away copper to form the traces of a circuitboard!

An introduction to using the Roland Modela milling machine can be viewed here.
