DIY CNC machine called the Ripper

Posted on Thursday, March 6th, 2014 in DIY by DP


Maximilian Malihas built this cool CNC machine called the Ripper:

The 3-Axis CNC was not designed for a specific application – ripper fusions the needs required for fast shape-cutting in wood/PVC and the strength and stiffness required for milling in aluminum and copper. It brings the precision down to fractions of the human hair – and can be build using simple tools!

    That’s an awful large machine to run without any kind of feedback loop in the motion control.

  2. JRDM says:

    At least, those look like stepper motors and don’t appear to have an encoder on them.

    That said, the motor form factor looks pretty standard, so a servo motor would drop in just fine. I like the machine that I see so far.
