Lemme ask you first if you know exactly what a CNC machine is? Do you? When I first had to write a post about one, I had to look it up! But I did a little reading, a little learning, then I knew what it was – something I WANTED. Take a look at all the things Yanko’s written about that have to do with a CNC machine and you’ll notice that it just doesn’t come up that often. But here one is: the “RedBlueCNC,” designed by Nick Santillan. This one’s spiffy. It’s got blue, it’s got red, it’s got yellow, it’s got the ability to take commands.
It’s modular, that means you’ve got a lot of options. Arrange it how you like. Adapters can be attached, tool-heads can be attached. Go nuts.
The following paragraph I used for the last CNC we published, and since this designer is the SAME GUY, I figure it’s just as good, ya?
CNC stands for “computer numerical controlled” and today it’s used for a number of machines including wood routers, milling machines, water jet cutters, oxy-fuel, surface grinders, and my favorite, 3D printing. The one mister Nick Santillan’s made here is for routing.
That last one was mainly wood, this one’s plastic. And if you’ll take a look at the photos below, you can see that it’s using some sort of writing utensil too, so the versatility of this thing is high. Take a peek at both this one and the wood one and tell me how many you’re gonna order.
