Over a year ago, I was building a DOF(Depth fo Field) adapter for my hd video camera. I was successful using materials found around the house, but, aesthetically, it was pretty ugly. During my research I found a site where they offered DOF parts made via their cnc. I’ve always been fascinated with technology, electronics, and machining. This was the launching point into the field of “hobby cnc”.

After my first cnc build, I wanted to create a bigger version with unused linear rails and support blocks. Instead of starting out with an idea on paper, I started using Google’s Sketchup for visual design and testing. Once I was done, I was able to take the design and print out dimensions for fabrication. Below you’ll see the Sketchup model and near finish build.
