great project by Dirk, he has used the 3D Router plans, but he has added some stepper motors to convert it into a CNC:

I am very interested in doing something similar. However I have a couple of questions:
  • Can it still be used in manual mode or is it full-time CNC?
  • What Software Do you use for creating plans and controlling the machine?
I am more than willing to contribute whatever expertise I have:
  • I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering,
  • I first came across Numerical Control Machines in the aerospace industry when I left University in 1966.
  • I now have 50 years experience in Computer Systems Design and programming.
