Three-axis rotary machining with Arduino

Reading Time: 3 minutes For many years CNC machining was the purview of well-equipped shops and manufacturing facilities. With the availability of inexpensive control hardware, such as Arduino-based GRBL packages, this type of control has come to the (technically inclined) masses, enabling us to create complicated 2D and 3D shapes automatically. Normally, this means X, Y, and Z axes […]
