This project makes a mini CNC 3D printer. For a previous project, I wanted to be able to create PCB’s quickly and simply. I have tried many methods: Toner Transfer (Iron Method); Photosensitive; Hand Drawing. None of these I found particularly inspiring or reliable. So after watching countless videos on Mini CNC machines, I have decided to build my own. I have been using Google SketchUp to design my parts and my AnyCubic Kossel to realize my designs. The design phase has been quite challenging for me, making sure each part has the correct dimensions and that each component will work with the rest of the project. Then you have to print it, and things very rarely go to plan, so you then need to tweak it. Re-model in SketchUp and Re-Print.”
