Another simple 3D printed plotter CNC

This is like the CDROM based CNC’s but…its all 3D printed and is using servos instead of steppers. Its using the ESP for a controller and seems to be doing a pretty good job of it. https://www.instructables.com/id/Tracey-Drawing-Machine/

I like this build. I was doing something similar with CDROM drives, but this is easier and uses servos over steppers. https://www.instructables.com/id/Tracey-Drawing-Machine/

Making an Omnibot CNC plotter

First time I have seen one with 3 wheels instead of 4 and a write-up that involves the math behind it. Omni wheels have come down alot on price too…I saw some for $10 each. https://www.instructables.com/id/Omni-Wheel-CNC-Plotter-V2/

Nice CNC cut end table

Nice build, but…you need a full size 8×4 CNC to cut this one out. In other words this is for a pro shop. Or maybe a makerspace https://www.instructables.com/id/Bed-Table/

Clever tank tread build

The design (that you can 3D print out) uses plastic BB’s as the fastener and bearing for the tread.
