I am running www,HomoFaciens.de providing educational material for free. HomoFaciens means "making human" (derived from Homo Sapiens which is the wise man). The topics are semiconductors, electronics, computing and robotics. You can drive robots in my RoboSpatium - try it out!

I made a quality check of the spindle motors I am using for my CNC projects:

Tests with my CNC v3.2 will follow..

With this CNC I have cut gears and sensor discs to improve the design.

Schematics and details about the construction are freely available on my project page:

Working full time on my educational platform would be a great thing.

How??? This is really something

I will send a robot around planet earth in a peaceful mission. Join my campaign:

Give the rover a name, paint it or make suggests for the design.

My CNC version 2.0 got an upgrade using bipolar stepper motors, thus it can run grbl software on the Arduino and so process G-code:

It's made of materials available in a hardware store and uses motors from old optical drives.
