Here’s quick little video showing it running the default program to cut out the EMC2 logo.

  1. Nice . . . looks like it’s starting to come together, well, in baby steps anyways.

    Oh, and nice music. Kind of went well with the motor sounds in the background 🙂

  2. Yup, it’s slowly coming together. With any luck the mechanical stuff will be here this week…
