The mount is for Dremel 3000?

Do you have any example videos or pictures of making things with this subtraction method? Seems like it would be cool.

So, does this work well? Skeinforge has a subtractive method, but I'm a little unsure how much exactly your could get made with this

I still haven't had the time to try this out, but i guess that it would work just fine when you adjust the speed down slow and have milling tool at the end of the dremel..

But as long as nobody try this, it is just an educated guess for now...

Do you have any luck milling or engraving with this mount? PCB milling would be a nice addition to the Makerbot's features

I am currently working on a different project for the moment, so i have not had the time to do any testing at all.

All in due time;)


Can you say PCB!!!!! I LOVE IT. :)

Sweet! Thanks for designing this.

Will come handy in future.

No prob..

I live to please :)

"use a hot glue gun" ... can you get your dremel out again?

Well, you dont actually glue the dremel to the mounting brackets, but you glue the dremel-mounts to the dinos.

Its my fault for not making this clearer, and i see i have forgotten to mention something, and that is that you have to cut the dremel-mounts 1 and 2 in half. (I will upload more pictures to show this)


I was talking to somebody just yesterday about how someone had hooked a dremel up to a reprap and how I was hoping to see one for a cupcake, too. :)

Just curious: any reason you didn't go for a mount for a flex-shaft instead?

The only reason is that i dont have a flex-shaft, i only have this dremel-model, so i just wanted to be able to use my dremel with my beloved makerbot ;)

And i see someone has already made one:
