virtual machine/timing belt snap machine/motor control

How to make something that makes (almost) anything

This is a page documenting Nadya Peek's work in the MIT Media Arts and Sciences Special topics class S62, How to make something that makes (almost) anything, taught by Neil Gershenfeld and Joe Jacobson.

I'm working on small-format milling machines and their controls. The 3 topics I loosely separated above are the virtual machine controls, a method of controlling machines directly without having to stream things like g-code, the timing belt machine (a new generation of MTM snap), and motor controller circuit boards (probably the thing you are most likely to want to reuse).
