“Arduino Based CNC Drawing Machine” is a machine that works based on the rule of Computer Numerical Control (CNC). CNC Plotter typically works with two CD-drives for Z and Y axes and one CD-drive for X axis, where the CNC PLOTTER plots the input which is given from the system from the drawing board using an open-source physical computing platform called Arduino Uno. The CNC PLOTTER has two CD-drive axis control and one single CD-drive to lift and lower the pen. Each axis is given power and driven by using an Arduino Uno compactable driver A4988. The X and Y axis mainly contains step- per motors taken from CD-drives. The software used for programming the Arduino board is Grbl software. The right and efficient arrangement and proper use of these programs besides the circuit makes up an efficient CD-ROM CNC PLOTTER.
