Bart Bakker of Utrecht, Netherlands sent us these images and a link to a short piece about his mini home fab lab. He built it for around US$4K. The lab consists of an A4 Laser Cutter, a vintage Ultimaker 3D-printer, a Mantis CNC mill, and a CraftRobo vinyl/papercutter. Bart built the Ultimaker and the Mantis 9 at the ProtoSpace Fablab. Both use an Ultimaker open source motherboard and ReplicatorG for control. The 35W lasercutter from HPC costed € 1235.
