How slow it is, to be milled by hand...

Well, standing in one place for nearly 6 hours to make 1 part may sound like fun, although my feet had other ideas.


With over 100 parts, the MGF project would take nearly a year and a half to complete. So I looked into purchasing a CNC mill that was up to the task and found them to be well above my budjet.


That's when I made the decision to upgrade my own machine to CNC (Computer Numeric Control), with a bit f a difference. Where mine would use brushless motors instead of stepper motors. Normally brushless motors are hard to control, especially for accurate position control and holding that position.


Well, that's where the ODrive comes in, checkout https://odriverobotics.com


Now I just need to design it on my 3D CAD package (Alibre Design Pro).
