CNC machines have been around for decades, but the past few years have seen the rise of CNC machines for small-scale or personal use. If you’re interested in learning how exactly these machines work, check out MotionKit.
MotionKit is an affordable platform that aims to teach CNC in both theory and practice. The hardware kit comes with all the parts you need to build a 2-axis CNC machine.
The heart of the kit is the Motion Block, a multipurpose part that makes it less confusing to build a CNC machine while keeping the kit versatile.
MotionKit will provide lessons on its website to help newbies get started and make the most out of the hardware.
Pledge at least $179 (USD) on Kickstarter to receive a MotionKit hardware kit as a reward, as well as lifetime access to the virtual classroom. You can also pledge at least $79 to get just the Motion Blocks as a reward.
