MARCH 27th 2013 -TIMELAB - GHENT - On Wednesday March 27th we will be presenting our big black machine. It is a 800x1000mm 3-axial milling machine intended for milling wood panels in the Ghent fablab. See http://www.timelab.org/nl/presentatie-zelfgebouwde-freesmachine

Everybody is welcome for a quiet drink and some loud milling, from 19h at timelab.


MARCH 25th 2013 - Way too long since we came back to our milling machines. Both me and Kurt have been busy running our respective labs and haven't been able to put as much time in our machines as we would want.

MARCH 20th 2013 - SHOP UPDATE - For now we are not distributing any kits of the miniCNC. The machine electronics are based around the old Makerbot Cupcake boards, which are no longer available. We are reworking the electronics to run off a set of Reprap electronics and a modified version of Pronterface.
