This research presents a theoretical and practical approach on the construction of a low-cost CNC machine, using as a base model found on the internet. Having his knowledge of movement that in the past was movement only one axis at a time, and in current controls movement on three simultaneous axes. The use of an Arduino micro controller will be the key part of the machine's operation, since it behaves like a PLC, starting from basic to advanced programming. The use of the project will end in its academic use and the dissemination of the technology used
