I had all the electronics hardware from an old 3d printer.
I had a dremel 4000.
I have a cutting size of 450 x 450 to suit a project I built this for.
Very happy with the results.
I work at a cardboard factory and the few jobs I’ve done on chipboard and nylon I think I can get away with a single sheet of cardboard as a waste board using double sided tape to hold everything. I can’t see it moving but have yet to try aluminium.
Gotta say I was pretty excited when I did the crown test.
Nylons interesting as I expected it to melt with the dremel at 25000RPM but no problem.
Using a single flute end mill. Pack of 10 for about $10.
Discovered Fusion 360 at the same time as building this and have to say the process of getting model to gcode is super easy.
Edit: Using this for dremel 4000 mount
Using these bits for chipboard and nylon:
Using this for all gt2 2mm pulleys. Download and edit openscad source to suit. 16 teeth.
Cable chain I made for z cables. It works.
Bracket for attaching aluminium angle for z axis cable chain:
Flexible z coupler:
Thankyou V1 Engineering.
