Meet Lawrence. Lawrence arrived two days ago, and is collaborating as our first Dedicated Project Visitor. He is here developing a Replicable, Low Cost, High Performance, Open Source, Multipurpose, CNC XYZ Table based on our previous work.
We are making even further simplifications over the last design, and trying a laptop (not recommened) instead of a desktop for the controls. We are using a proprietary controller from Xylotex (RepRap controllers were not available at the time we purchased this), but we are also looking into adapting the the open source RepRap controller. We will be using a plasma cutter head initially, and we are looking into developing a dual plasma cutter handle that can be used either on or off the torch table.
Listen to Lawrence’s introduction, impressions, and goals about the project and about Factor e Farm:
