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.
