    Here are a few links that came up in yesterday's Meetup.
    The ElectroTech forum has helped me a lot. It is searchable and has info on all kinds of electronics. Knowledgeable people will answer questions. There is a section for all kinds of microcontrollers and one for robotics.

    CNC Zone forum has plans for making X Y Z axis machines of all kinds. Info and sources on stepper motors and drivers and software.

    In Nuts and Volts magazine there is a Bi-monthly Near Space column which covers this new realm of exploration - space for the backyard scientist. Learn to construct and launch balloons with a focus on the instrumentation and experiments that reveal interesting features of our world. Started in February 2004.
    They have a lot of interesting articles including logging position data and using it to plot the path in Google Earth 3-D.

    Hi I'm Dave Hogan (ClydeCrashKop on Electrotech forum)
    I create all kinds of things mechanical, electronic, computerized. I CNCed my milling machine with my own C++ program and LPT1. I program PICs to read joysticks and mice to control stepper motors. Looking for people with similar interests.

      I have liked 3D printers since the first time I saw them years ago. I have an 18" wide printer carriage saved for that purpose.
      I'll see you Sunday.

      The best way to show you the CNC milling machine is this video.­

      The mouse project is at my web site­
