Artists Chris Reilly and Taylor Hokanson appear to be getting some impressive results from their DIYLILCNC. They certainly aren’t the first to develop an open source CNC mill, however their build looks particularly nice. They claim that the whole thing can be assembled for around $700, including the stepper motors and drive electronics. Want to get in on the action? CAD drawings for the parts and build instructions are available on their site, under the Creative Commons license. [via core77]

    We’re getting ready to release a second, improved generation of the design and assembly instructions for the DIYLILCNC. We’re doing some fundraising right now via kickstarter to offset our R&D costs.

    We’ve got some pretty fun rewards for contributors… donors can have a part of the new machine named after them, or use their contributions to vote for specific design changes they’d like to see in version 2.
