MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
DIY CNC machine is a very popular project on the internet, a lot of people made different versions but I want to show you how I made my own CNC machine with a Dremel as a spindle. Personally, I think that CNC machine is kind of an upgrade of a 3D printer, you can create stronger parts made out of wood or metal but it also has some limitations (that's a topic for another video). To learn more check out my video about this: https://youtu.be/Fs9dosQYtGU https://youtu.be/TXEHunJmjcg https://youtu.be/239aFAqYBpQ https://youtu.be/I7woln6urVY https://youtu.be/GsKiz49x8rI https://youtu.be/xfQ0YosR6us
That's just the first part, there will be more so make sure to subscribe!
Also keep in mind that this is work in progress so I may change some models or something in the design. If you have any questions feel free to ask me!
Below you can find parts that I will use to build this machine.
In the first part of my DIY Dremel CNC, I will show you how my design looks like (if you have any idea on how to make it better or you see some problems please let me know :)) I will also show you all the parts that I will use in next parts of this short series. In the next two or three videos, we will assemble this machine and hopefully mill some stuff.
I always wanted to have one of those fancy CNC machines that can mill metals. It's cool and it gives you so many possibilities for next projects! I already have few ideas for projects with a CNC machine :)
I changed some STL files, fixed naming of them.
x axis carriage right was changed, I made the cavity for stepper smaller so that there is more working area.
Small changes to the spindle carriage including smaller holes for bearings so that they are not loose.
I also uploaded .step and .iges files. I deleted old STL files from Thingiverse to keep it cleaner. All of the old files can be found in everything.zip
Remember to come back and post what you've printed as Make.
It's good for the designer and the community (that means you)!
To post a Make, come back to this Thing and click Post a Make.
Or, you can use the Thingiverse Mobile app found on
and the Apple App Store.
