Since we may be contracting 3rd party to make PCBs and supply parts for the CNC, I'd like to gauge how much real interest there is in buying one of these machines, when we're done.
Keep in mind that this is not a commitment, just think to yourself to see how serious you would be, and comment yay or nay.
Update June 8th, 20122:
Ok, just counting heads. So far it's 17 people. Let me know if I missed anyone.
My personal budget for this is $1000-$1200, so any higher, and I'm out, but of course would continue to do my best to get this done for everyone!
Here's a list of "yays" so far (again no commitment assumed):
Drive System Survey
Franco Scipioni has set up a survey to gauge interest in which system we want to have on the system.
Access the survey here:
I am in but it will have to be in some sort of kit form to get to Australia
Ditto - I'm game..
I'm in depending upon price.
I need something that will mill 2mm carbon fiber sheets and hopefully, up to 1/4" aluminum sheet, but I could live with 1/8".
I've just cleared out a corner of my 'work shop' or as the missus calls it, 'the dining room'. I've been toying with just buying a unit, but would much rather help develop something with you jolly lot.
In other words, I'm in.
I'll do some reading this weekend, oh and test to see how my dremel performs nose-down in various materials, with various attachments.
Keep up the good work.
Sign me up for one :)
We work a lot with Bosch Rexroth aluminium extrusion so if we can be of any help please ask.
Oops, now it's 18. ;-)
Oh, Andrew's already on the list, so still 17.
Folks, looks like we got 17 people with interest. I've added a list to the top of the discussion, check and see if I missed anyone.
I would definitely be in for one
I'm very interested as well! I used to write CAD/CAM/CAE software, including lots of tool drivers, plus lots of experience w/ realtime embedded and high performance code, interested to see where you go with this and may be able to assist some on the software side if needed...
