This month's meeting will be demo night. Bring something to show. It can be a project you finished, something you made, a work in process or something we might think is cool.
I will be bringing several things I have recently completed.
The bipolar ORD Bot: (http://www.buildlog.net/blog/2015/01/the-bipolar-ord-bot/) This is a CNC machine I built for 2015 ORD Camp. It is a super simple drawing machine with some fun math behind the motion.
The DC Power Supply Interface: (http://blog.inventables.com/2015/01/power-supply-interface-follow-up.html) This is something I did for Inventables that we will be selling soon. It really cleans up the wiring when you use a DC power supply on a CNC machine.
The TB6600 Stepper Driver Shield: (http://blog.inventables.com/2015/01/tb6600-stepper-driver-shield.html) This is another Inventables project. The TB6600 can do a ton of cool CNC stuff. Now you can interface it to the free grbl CNC controller.
The CNC Club is a monthly meeting of Chicago area people passionate about learning, building and using digital fabrication equipment. It is held at the Pumping Station One (http://www.pumpingstationone.org/) Hackerspace. It is open to non members. We also have a Google Group called CNC Build Club. (https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/cnc-build-club)
Each meeting we talk about, build, train on and use CNC machines. We have 3D printers, laser cutters, CNC routers and vinyl cutters. Come out and join the fun.
Please RSVP, but don't be concerned about the low RSVP count. Unfortunately most people don't respond, but we usually get between 10 and 30 people per week.
BTW: I will have a CNC related door prize to one lucky person who RSVPs and is present at the meeting.
