Classic NES controller manipulates X, Y, and Z axis of DIY CNC mill
Check out this awesome electronics/digifab hack from Edward Ford.
And if “CNC + Edward Ford” rings a bell, it’s because Mr. Ford recently launched a Kickstarter project to raise funds for the design and free distribution of a $300 CNC mill — the ShapeOko.
The campaign has more than doubled it’s funding goal, and there’s still 20 days left to go.
You can still donate, and pledge prizes include a $25 Personal Factory making voucher from us, 3 stepper motor drivers + an Arduino pre-loaded with an open source CNC controller, or a complete ShapeOko CNC mill. Or just a big ole “thank you”.
