Thanks to an outpouring of support on Kickstarter, we’re finally in a position where we can spend the money and time to roll out DIYLILCNC version 2.  We’ll post periodic updates to show you all of the great ideas that make it (or don’t make it) through our unconventional approach to engineering.  Keep in mind that all of the improvements you’ll see documented below are based on user requests.

Featuring:

  1. Trapped bearings:  No more reliance on gravity-seating.  Avoid specialty bearings where possible.
  2. Metric parts:  Hardware and sheet goods.  This means the new design will never rely on material thickness to enforce precise positioning of components.
  3. Scalability:  Each axis should be easily lengthened without significant redesign.
