CNC Machine built using a LEGO Mindstorms NXT

Check out this LEGO CNC Machine which is built around a LEGO Mindstorms NXT system. The creator is 16 year old Youtube user Kabeltomten, all I can say is way to go and I can’t wait to see what this guy is building 10 years from now. The Z axis has some great height, looks to be something like 10 inches, the X, Y table can move around with some great speed also. Now since it is built using LEGO pieces don’t expect the thing to be the most stable thing around but I can see this thing cutting some cardboard, drawing some homework with a marker or frosting a cool cupcake!

Be sure to watch the video after the jump.

There are quite a few LEGO CNC machines out there and I don’t think this will be the last! If you have some interesting LEGO creations be sure to let us know.

    Great learning project, not so good for sturdyness although can add a pen to the end and make it into a plotter 🙂
