Hello, I am Chris,
I am investigating into the costs and possibilities of (mis)using a
cnc for a digital microscope . . .
If you wonder why: I have a lot of microfiches (no not fishes) and by
combining a digital microscope and a cnc I want to automate the digitizing
of the microfiches.
Of course I have a microfiche reader but that is a big apparatus.
Of course there are companies that offer digitizing microfiches but that's no fun.
Greetings form the Netherlands,

Hi CHris and welcome to the site. That sounds an interesting project and one I am sure a number of our members could offer ideas on.

Hi Chris, very much intrested in how you get on with this. I look forward to seeing the project come to life as a build log :)

on a purely physical level, that should work fine. A small router would be perfect for it

or just an x/y table on the machine itself
