DIY X-Carve build for $170 | CNC | Part 1

To watch My latest Metal engraving Laser CNC, go to.

There’s nothing more greater feeling than to owning your own CNC machine for your prototyping needs. But CNC machines can be super expensive for a school/college student as i am, the only next best option is for you to make your own CNC machine with recycled part like stepper motors from old industrial Xerox printers and using simple rotary bearings as the axis sliding mechanism. Here I have done exactly that. I got the inspiration from the popular CNC company called X-carve from inventables.

took few months to build it.
its way cheaper than X-Carve.
the whole build cost around $170
any doubt about the building process comment down below.
