DIY CNC machine called the Ripper

DCIM100GOPRO

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!

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

  2. 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.
