I have always dreamed of cheap 5 axle CNC machining mill. It should be possible to CNC-machine a car with that or similar complex object like a human head.
Once I am good to make excellent modelings with Rhinoceros I would like realize these modelings too in real life.
But is there any sense to buy a low cost 6 DOF robotic arm from ebay and use it as a tool like this:http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-6-DOF-Manipulator-Aluminum-Robot-Arm-Kits-for-Smart-Car-Base-/160998716216?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item257c457338
Is it really difficult to program arduino make whatever form from .stl files in order to CNC machine them with this kind of robotic arm?
Maybe the table where the machinable object is fixed could have such an function that it could rotate with a servo. But I think that in theory a robotic arm with a
table like this should be able to machine whatever form.
Please tell me your opinions of a plan like this. Many thanks in advance.
