In addition to teaching 3D modeling and rendering at CCS, Detroit-based designer Brian Oltrogge does fabrication for Massiearchitecture. In his spare time he does things like, oh, build CNC machines in his apartment out of MDF. As he explains,
After seeing you feature a small DIY CNC machine on your site, I thought I'd send you a link to my work. My machine is 98" X 43" and completely hand built in my spare bedroom in my apartment complex. After I designed my machine in Rhino, I started by plotting patterns full scale at Kinkos.
Hit the jump for tons-o'-shots of Oltrogge's hand-rigged, DIY CNC. And be prepared to feel bad about your own DIY skills.
