Zen Toolworks CNC 7×12 3D Printer/Milling Kit

This is a DIY kit for a CNC milling/carving machine. You can now build your very own CNC machine to do relief carving, letter cutting, milling, inlay, and many other interesting processes that enhance your woodworking, PCB and endless other projects.

The body of the machine is constructed from high density PVC material. High quality, stainless steel guide rods, linear bearings, and stainless steel lead screws allow for extremely smooth and accurate movement. The anti-backlash teflon nut design will virtually eliminate all backlashes. Three new Dual Shaft Nema 17 motors for all three axis are also included along with wiring harness. The install is very easy, and can be done as an evening or weekend project. The structural build usually takes 3-4 hours to complete. We have worked hard to produce visual written instructions as well as videos to assist in the build.

Finally, a CNC kit that is affordable, durable and accurate, and easy to build. The high quality PVC material creates a strong bond with the hardware to keep a low maintenance machine.

Please consult our website for our wiki and forum that supports our products.

NOT INCLUDED: This is just the CNC machine frame with stepper motors, guide rods, and lead screws. You will need a 3 axis stepper motor driver to manage each motor, a spindle/cutting tool with mounting hardware, which is all available from Zen Toolworks. You will also need a DC power supply and a computer with a standard printer port and CNC control software.
IF you are looking for a complete kit with everything needed including all electronic equipment and software, please check out our Amazon store front for our complete packages as well as many other products.

Making Things Move DIY Mechanisms for Inventors, Hobbyists, and Artists

A unique guide to practical mechanical design principles and their applications
In Making Things Move, you’ll learn how to build moving mechanisms through non-technical explanations, examples, and do-it-yourself projects–from art installations to toys to labor-saving devices. The projects include a drawing machine, a mini wind turbine, a mousetrap powered car, and more, but the applications of the examples are limited only by your imagination. A breadth of topics is covered ranging from how to attach couplers and shafts to a motor, to converting between rotary and linear motion.
Each chapter features photographs, drawings, and screenshots of the components and systems involved. Emphasis is placed on using off-the-shelf components whenever possible, and most projects also use readily available metals, plastics, wood, and cardboard, as well as accessible fabrication techniques such as laser cutting. Small projects in each chapter are designed to engage you in applying the material in the chapter at hand. Later in the book, more involved projects incorporate material from several chapters.
Making Things Move:

  • Focuses on practical applications and results, not abstract engineering theories
  • Contains more than a dozen topic-focused projects and three large-scale projects incorporating lessons from the whole book
  • Features shopping lists and guides to off-the-shelf components for the projects
  • Incorporates discussions of new fabrication techniques such as laser cutting and 3D printing, and how you can gain access
  • Includes online component for continuing education with the book’s companion website and blog (makingthingsmove.com)

507 Mechanical Movements: Mechanisms and Devices

This is the classic about mechanical things and devices, using simple drawings to explain 507 of the small components that constitute complex machinery. Left-hand pages show illustrations, and facing pages offer brief descriptions of use and operation. Ranging from simple to complex, the mechanisms include cranks, pulleys, drills, wheels, and screws.
