now i have to design the electronics placements...!!!

it works very well   ;D

Nice!

Could you please tell more about the hardware used and show (some) code?

Awesome. It looks like you are using an Arduino Mega. Is there some reason for the Mega, over the smaller Duemilanove?

I'm collecting stuff now to computer-control my wife's quilting machine.

Sweeeet!   ;)

I'd love to see some plans for the mechanics! I'm building a Repstrap at the moment the your looks a little more solid.

THIS MACHINE ITS GONNA BE A 3D CUTTING CNC, BUT WHEN I FIND THE EXTRUDER, I WILL CHANGE TO REPRAP LIKE 3D PRINTER.....

USED MODIFIED REPRAP FIRMWARE FOR THE ARDUINO MEGA, AND A JAVA SOFTWARE ON MY PC TO SEND THE GCODES, HAD TO MAKE MYSELF THE STEPPER DRIVERS WITH HBRIDGES AND THE 2 PIN ARDUINO CIRCUIT.

ALL THE MACHINE IS A PROTOTYPE, IT DOES ALL THE BIG BROTHER WILL DO WHEN I FIND BIGGER STEPPERS.

I love this!  A home-made CNC machine is pretty much my golden chalice project.
What about elevensies? Luncheon? Afternoon tea? Dinner? Supper?

What do you plan to use it for primarily? I want to mill PCBs with mine, and eventually make a full Reprap machine.

will do the same as you............ did you Make yours?

Very impressive. My original attraction to the Arduino was for some machine control projects.

Did you write your own stepper motor code or are you using one of the libraries?

How do you "home" the system when it first powers up?

Did you design the stepper drivers yourself? Can you tell some more about them?

I'm about 1/2 way through construction and have most of the mechanical parts rounded up, I'm trying to take my time and get the tolerances as close as possible. I think when I'm done and I've got it up, running and have wrapped my brain around the whole concept I'm going to design my own version. I can already think of a few improvements over the original Repstrap design, and I've been wanting to try my hand at metal casting so that'll probably come into play.

yes, please bring some more photos or a video. very good project
