Dremel attachment for MakerBot

The correct name for the MakerBot 3D printer is the Cupcake CNC, suggesting that all sorts of attachments could be substituted for the usual plastruder — in this case, Andrew “Clothbot” Plumb created an assembly out of some makerbotted connectors and a length of MakerBeam, allowing the mounting of the business end of a Dremel Flex-Shaft. The result? A mini CNC mill slash drill press.

  1. Oooh, cool! That could be super useful for lightweight material. I wonder if you could do PCB hole drilling with it?

    I’m working on a dremel attachment for a little desktop cnc robot, but am concerned about the torque required for machining. It’s encouraging to see that the Makerbot is able to push the head around!
