Arduino based ‘Etch A Sketch’ laser cutter

Posted on Wednesday, March 26th, 2014 in Arduino, DIY, open source, tools by the machinegeek


Martin Raynsford writes about his latest Arduino based project:

We switched out the standard controller with an Arduino (just in time for Arduino day) and connected two rotary dials to directly manipulate the X and Y axis. As long as the laser only cuts while the axis are moving then we should avoid fires. We’ll be touring the UK Maker Faires with it this year so everyone can have a go

Project details can be found at Just Add Sharks.
