How do you get thousands of attendees to collaborate on a single, massive art project in the short timespan of a conference? We built a solution for this utilizing desktop CNC routers controlled by Java embedded technology with an Oracle Cloud backend. Affordable desktop CNC printers for subtractive prototyping are the next big Maker movement after the 3D printer revolution. CNC routers are the analog of 3D printers with the ability to remove material with full automation and repeatability and can cut a variety of materials from wood to plastic to soft metals. In this presentation we will demonstrate how you can use Java embedded technology running on a Raspberry Pi to control CNC routers and fabricate your own designs. Come to learn about the technology and stay to play with the cool demos and hardware!
