CNC Build Club

Welcome! The CNC Build Club is a group of people interested in designing, building or working on CNC machines including CNC routers and mills, robots, Carvey, Shapeoko, 3D printers and other contraptions. We often/usually meet at Pumping Station: One (Chicago's original and biggest and best hackerspace) every third Thursday of the month 7pm. There might be additional field trips and meetings from time to time. This Google Group is for discussion of all kinds of things, the Meetup group will also alert you of upcoming meetings and events:

How to use this group:
  1. Introduce yourself! (we're friendly)
  2. Join or start a project! (all experience levels welcome)
  3. Come to the monthly meetings and build stuff!
