    Build Your Own Multifunctional 4-Axis CNC Machine

    Plot, Cut, Drill, Mill and Laser with the Z99This book covers the construction, hardware, software, and operation of the Z99 – CNC machine. This is a multifunctional 4-axis machine for home construction.The capabilities of the Z99 machine include: large-format schematic plotting PCB plotting with etch-resist pens schematic plotting with conductive-ink pens letter cutting out of vinyl paper cutting PCB/substrate drilling PCB/substrate milling text milling laser engraving laser cutting of solder paste masks By making the support software available as freeware, readers of the book are challenged and encouraged to develop new applications for the Z99.The machine would not be of much use if the user has no option to create suitable files for the designs in mind. A large part of this book is dedicated to creating source files in a variety of freeware software packages, including Inkscape, DesignSpark PCB, KiCad, and FlatCAM.The book is also useful for readers keen to comprehend and then master the basic structure of HPGL, Gerber, Drill, and G-code files, as well as to have a go at deciphering them using software.

    Motors for Makers

    3 in stock

    Makers can do amazing things with motors. Yes, they’re more complicated than some other circuit elements, but with this book, you can completely master them. Once you do, incredible new projects become possible. Unlike other books, Motors for Makers is 100% focused on what you can do. Not theory. Making. First, Matthew Scarpino explains how electric motors work and what you need to know about each major type: stepper, servo, induction, and linear motors. Next, he presents detailed instructions and working code for interfacing with and controlling servomotors with Arduino Mega, Raspberry Pi, and BeagleBone Black. All source code and design files are available for you to download from the 'Attachments/Downloads' section on this page. From start to finish, you’ll learn through practical examples, crystal-clear explanations, and photos. If you’ve ever dreamed of what you could do with electric motors, stop dreaming...and start making! Understand why electric motors are so versatile and how they work Choose the right motor for any project Build the circuits needed to control each type of motor Program motor control with Arduino Mega, Raspberry Pi, or BeagleBone Black Use gearmotors to get the right amount of torque Use linear motors to improve speed and precision Design a fully functional electronic speed control (ESC) circuit Design your own quadcopter Discover how electric motors work in modern electric vehicles--with a fascinating inside look at Tesla’s patents for motor design and control! Table of contents: Chapter 1: Introduction to Electric MotorsChapter 2: Preliminary ConceptsChapter 3: DC MotorsChapter 4: Stepper MotorsChapter 5: ServomotorsChapter 6: AC MotorsChapter 7: Gears and GearmotorsChapter 8: Linear MotorsChapter 9: Controlling Motors with the Arduino MegaChapter 10: Controlling Motors with the Raspberri PiChapter 11: Controlling Motors with the BeagleBone BlackChapter 12: Designing an Arduino-Based Electronic Speed Control (ESC) CircuitChapter 13: Designing a QuadcopterChapter 14: Electric VehiclesAppendix A: Electric GeneratorsAppendix B: Glossary

  • Getting Started with 3D Carving

    Make Getting Started with 3D Carving

    Learn the basics of designing and making things with Inventables' software (Easel) and 3D carving machines (X-Carve and Carvey) This book was written for people who have never carved before. It teaches the basics of designing and making things with Inventables' software (Easel) and 3D carving machines (X-Carve and Carvey). It showcases five step-by-step projects you can build yourself as a beginner, including an inspiration tile, kitchen cutting board, custom block stamp, fidget spinner, and balsa wood glider. The book also features a gallery of aspirational projects, like an electric guitar and a box joint toolbox, to show what else is possible through 3D carving. The design files and instructions for these more complex projects can be found on the Inventables website. Projects Included Participate in the world's largest mosaic tile wall Build a glider to your own specifications Create your own inlay cutting boards Carve a fidget spinner toy Craft wooden 3D stamps you can use to create your own greeting cards
