Instructables user Ardumotive_com has published a new project that explains how to create your very own Arduino powered mini CNC plotter.
The Arduino plotter can also be equipped with a Bluetooth dongle for wireless communication. Check out the video below to see it in action and learn more.
Its creators Greek Arduino Projects explain more about the plotters construction and design using DVD drives :
In this project I will show you how to easily build your own low-cost Arduino Mini CNC Plotter! Ardunino based CNC plotter machine – made from two dvd drives! X and Y axis are using stepper motors and rails from two dvd drives and Z axis is using one micro servo.
Because it works with serial communication you can also use a Bluetooth module (like HC-06) to print your stuff wirelessly through your computer Bluetooth connection! I have used the code from this Makerblog.at, so I need to thank the those guys for sharing this to us.
To build your very own Arduino CNC plotter jump over to the Instructables website via the link below. If you found this project interesting why not build your very own Arduino wind speed meter or anemometer to record the wind speed in your area.
