A viewer challenges Ben to build a small, portable CNC machine. Can Ben not only design it, but get it running G-code as well? Ben also starts the Xbox 360 laptop design.
Ben starts cutting parts for the CNC machine he designed. He then starts putting it together, only to realize some of the parts don't quite fit! Dremel to the rescue!
Armed with only a dial caliper, ruler, Diet Pepsi and a computer, Ben embarks on the design stage of the Xbox 360 laptop.
Ben journeys to the wilds of Milwaukee where his friend Chris Kraft helps him get the CNC machine running using some leftover Makerbot parts. Will they get it to cut something in time?
