Thread: Cheap (<200$) DIY wood router
I have been working on a low budget CNC machine design on and off for a couple of years now. This has resulted in my 3.rd design iteration, by which I consider the design done.
It's a low budget machine, so don't expect high speeds, precision and metal capabilities. I have routed stuff requiring <1mm precision without any problems though.
I managed to keep the complete build below 200$ here in Denmark, and I guess it could be done cheaper elsewhere since prices are in the high end here. The price includes everything: nuts, bolts, wood, stepper motors, electronics, dremel tool (a cheaper copy of a dremel that is) etc...
I have made a BOM, some description, packed all necessary drawing files and taken a lot of detail photos of the machine. It is all available for free on my webpage: http://www.nengineering.dk/cnc-machi...ow-budget-cnc/
The work is released under a CC license, which you can see on the webpage as well.
I really hope the design will be of use to some of you!
