Monster CNC Router


Yesterday saw the arrival of a monster sized CNC at House4Hack

The machine is part of a venture being incubated by Marcus, Dries and William.  Dries was responsible for building the machine and the group are planning to explore a variety of products and services using this very impressive piece of hardware.

The machine is fitted with a router and can be applied to wood and most plastics.  The table is about the size of a table tennis table and can easily be applied to a full sized door!

One of the reasons for incubating at House4Hack is the potential for cross-pollination between mechanical, electronics and software – the collaborative intelligence that are possible are mind-blowing, think UAV’s, Solar Cars etc, etc.

Currently the plan is to have demonstration of the machine coming Tuesday evening.
