CNC Mill Build

A computer numerical control (CNC) device is a machine tool (usually this means a machine that cuts or shapes material such as metal, wood, or plastic) via commands and measurements stored in digital form instead of guiding the tool by hand. "Mill" is a generic term for a machine that can remove material in along two or more dimensions. They are pretty cool. They are pretty expensive. One could buy one, but why not try to make one? In this project we will assemble a team that will explore existing DIY CNC mill projects and then either select one to replicate or come up with a new design that combines what we learn from existing projects. This is intended to be a "learn as you go" project so no particular prior experience or skill is assumed.
