While all you guys have been off playing in the sandbox, I’ve been working on a Phlatprinter-inspired foam cutter machine… that uses MPCNC-style conduit and printed parts construction. Here’s the initial test plot…
This is a fun project which uses leadscrew-driven Z, belt-driven X, and printed rack and pinion for the Y-axis. I’ve used inexpensive window-screen frame to make a material carrier… here a thick piece of plexiglass from a trashed LCD monitor. Ultimately I plan a carrier for a couple of sheets of DTFB and a needle-cutter mounted on the X-carriage.
I’'ve documented the build so far over on my FliteTest forum threaad, if you are interested…
