This machine is the ultimate sub $1K prototyping machine designed and built by me. This can mill anything from PCBs to steel (with an upgraded main spindle), plasma cut, and even 3D print (with a heated platform and the extruder head).
You can easily hotswap the spindle/cutter/printer heads and you are ready to build your prototype.

I was able to build this in 2.5 days which is pretty awesome. I am currently working on it's controll panel so it will be a true standalone machine no PC, Laptop needed.
Thanks to 4D Systems the HMI will be a 7" Touch TFT with a BBB.
