I've built a computer controlled 3 axis milling machine that
has a range of motion of 31 inches in the X direction, 15 inches
in the Y direction, and 7 inches vertically in the Z direction.
I've written some software (for the Mac) that can be used to mill
parts based on drawings and also pictures such as those taken from
a digital camera. Here's the photo gallery...
A sample screen. (click to get a full size image)
Some pictures cut out of colored plexiglass. They are lit from behind.
Some other more practical uses of the machine can
be seen on one of my EV1 pages
or on my singlespeed pages.
