In this project I’m showing you step by step how to build a low cost Arduino based mini CNC ink plotter machine using a scrap DVD player’s stepper motors , Arduino NANO, and also I will show you how to make a circuit/driver for stepper motors. The maximum printing area of this CNC machine is (40*40mm). You can use this machine for drawing labels, symbols etc., this CNC machine is requires only 5V, 1A of power for the working.
