I also wanted to keep the mind “Printable cheap CNC, easy to assemble, easy to use” for the same budget with better quality 🙂 It’s done! The budget of this complete CNC revolves around € 350/400 router included! Free files and tutorials!
The CNC is made with printable parts and mason box screed !
If you don't find the 18x100mm aluminium profile in your country, you can build it with wood or print this parts to fit with 20x100mm aluminium profile: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2487484.
It has a large area of useful milling, 550x550mm
Fully Autonomous and very easy to use, it just needs to be plugged into an plug:
-Place it at the desired location
-Connect the plug
-Fix the milling stock
–Set the end mill manually to the point of origin with the adjustment wheels
-Insert the SD card containing the g-code
-Start the program via the LCD
It also has 4 rubber pads at each angle, anti-vibration and anti scratch.
The electronics are integrated into the machine and it has a front USB port to connect a computer to the Ramps 1.4 if necessary without dismantling everything.
Clean installation thanks to dragchains
The pressure of all bearings on the square tubes is fully adjustable
Very high torque for Y moving thanks to a nema motor 23 multiplied by 3 with pulley 20×60 teeth
Integrated LED lighting
Easy mounting with printable drilling templates
I can create a support for different routers if given me the measurements (Dremel, Kress,...) 65mm et 52mm spindle mount available now, watch my other things.
