Parts for the CNC Machine Prototype
The project aims to create this CNC by building a prototype early on in the design process. By constructing a prototype, the team hopes to gain a better understanding of how the machine works, both in mechanism design and software design. After the prototype is made, the team will modify the design to accommodate a laser cutter and safely scale the product to the desired specifications.
Currently, the parts for the prototype of the CNC machine have been ordered and received. Using the prototype, the parts were measured and added to the bill of materials for preparation to create the CAD (Computer-aided design) of the parts for the final product. The prototype of the CNC machine will be assembled and programmed to test the design and functionalities of the CNC machine.
