Today we bring you André Catarino’s project. He will be bringing to the Maker Faire a CNC machine and a 3D printer of his own design and manufacture.
André’s goal is to demonstrate how it works and how easy these machines are to build and use. As an Elecrotechnical and Automation Engineering student at Instituto Superior de Engenharia de Lisboa, he soon became interested in electronics.
He also has a special interest in CAM (Computer-Aided Manufacturing), which is his field of work, and with this kind of machines he was able to bring both interests together and make this kind of projects into a hobby, having helped build and design several CNC machines, 3D printers, engravers, laser cutters and lathes.
You can see more photos and designs of his machine at this forum.
