Build your own CNC
This week we were tasked to create our own CNC machine. So we decided to build a toaster that would print neil's face onto toast via a soldering iron. It was a integrative week - taking 3 axes and composing it into a system, coding and creating tool paths in our own mods, and instructing a machine on how to draw out neil's face by following a bit map
I was mostly responsible for tracing neil's face and reinterpreting it into a bitmap for the tool paths to follow.
Realizing the fire hazard from the toast we aptly named our machine so
We had issues with scaling the bitmap into our code
