Thinking making your own robot parts? With the Shapeoko Deluxe Kit from Sparkfun, you can create 2D and 3D designs out of plastics, hardwoods, and non-ferrous metals.
This special SparkFun Edition of the Shapeoko Kit includes everything from the base frame and hardware to the motors and SparkFun Stepoko controller. This is an entry-level, 3-axis CNC machine with a cutting area of 16″ x 16″ x 3″. It’s designed for hobbyists, artists and fabricators. (The only thing that’s not included in a trim router.)
The included SparkFun Stepoko is an Arduino compatible, 3-axis control solution that runs grbl software and is able to connect to your computer to accept stepper motor commands.
You can buy the Shapeoko Deluxe Kit on the Sparkfun Website for $999.95.
