Print out a glass bottle cutter

I actually have one of these from a kickstarter project from years ago. Its a nice build but I think you need a good sized 3D printer to print this one out (over 8 inch bed). https://www.instructables.com/id/3D-Printed-Glass-Bottle-Cutting-Tool/

Cool mini 3D printed CNC laser engraver

Nice build, I like the re-use of the CD-ROM motors, but I am not so sure about using lasers. Drill motors I can handle but lasers make me a bit nervous. Either way the STL files for the build are … Continue reading

Interesting CNC build

Author uses 3D printer to make the ends for the frame. Nice build overall. Not sure if I would go with this over MP CNC. Bit pricey of a build with some of the parts he uses. https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-3D-Printed-Dremel-CNC/

Make your own 3D scanner

Interesting build, it moves the object around and you use your phone’s camera to scan in the images. Uses an ATiny to controll the thing. https://www.openscan.eu/?lang=en

Interesting CNC build

could be a bit more complicated of a CNC to control, as you need to handle the table spinning. But it does save on number of motors and other parts a standard CNC would use. The write up is not … Continue reading

Another cool stool assembly

Seeing more and more of these lately. This is another simple stool assembly made from plywood and does not need nails. I may have to upgrade my CNC so I can cut a few of these out myself. https://www.instructables.com/id/Moth-Stool/
