The CNC Club is a weekly meeting of Chicago area people passionate about learning, building and using digital fabrication equipment. It is held at the Pumping Station One Hackerspace. It is open to non members. We also have a Google Group called CNC Build Club. Here we are on a Google Map.
The meeting typically starts with a round robin introduction, followed by a tour of the space.
This week we are going to start putting together a small CNC milling machine. The machine was lent to us by Automation Technologies Inc. Right now the machine is just the mechanics. We need to add the motor controls, limits switches and setup some software. The goal is to create an easy to use work center that we will do some projects on. The plan is to sell the machine at a discount to someone in the group when we are finished. If you don't know anything about CNC, don't worry, you can still help. The goal is to teach, learn and use.
Please RSVP, but don't be fooled by the attendee count. Most PS1 member don't RSVP. We typically have between 12-30 people.
