Project Timeline for 3D Printed Desktop CNC
I just decided to start a new 3D printed CNC project. Currently I am in the process of finding and ordering parts and figuring out which elements of which remix I want to use on my build.
For this project instead of creating a bunch of individual blog posts I am going to try maintaining a running build log on this category page until the build is complete.
While there are quite a few different desktop CNC projects out there now I like the size of this project for my purposes. I also have a lot of the parts of the project on hand already. I plan on using the printed parts from the 3D Printed & Laser Cut, Lil-CNC Mill ACv2. I think I have found a local laser cutter and am going to use one of the many salvaged DC motors I have on hand to get started.
After some additional reading I have decided that I want to use the laser cut parts and additonal 3D printed parts from the Table CNC Engraver remix. This way I will have a little additional size and some handles. I also like the spoil board, 3D printed electronics enclosure, and start, pause and stop buttons on the front of the unit.
I also decided that I am going to use my Clear Push Plastic High Heat PLA and Clear Push Plastic PETG filament for the 3d printed parts. I don't print with ABS because of the fumes, so I am going use PETG in place of ABS.
