Maybe it would be worth pursuing the design of a double-wide Makerbot to allow clearance between the two tools.
if it is simular to my developmnents, the quality for etching pcb's will be determined to how stiff your build base is. If the build base can twist, as the copper runs through the cutting blade it will push slightly, therefore making 'curved' straight edges. see http://wiki.makerbot.com/robot... for a few images - to be updated with further results too)
Cloth bot - id love to see how well urs comes out, being a true makerbot(parts may be stiffer as more accuratly cut)

2. Tap a 1/2"-20 thread in the centre hole for the Dremel Flex-Shaft.
3. Print off two MakerBeam-to-M5 Bolt adapter parts (DFB_20100223.stl)
4. Tap the top two Mini-T M3 bolt holes on all printed parts with an M3 or 1/8" thread.
5. Insert the M3 T-bolts from the inside.
6. Loosely bolt M3 nuts on the outside.
7. Clean out Mini-T square holes and press Mini-T parts in.
Note: Even though the Mini-T square holes are 10.1mm in length and width, you may need to tweak skeinforge to print them large enough or be prepared to whittle out the excess.
8. Tighten the Mini-T M3 nuts, screw in the Dremel Flex-Shaft, bolt the assembly on your Z-platform with M5 bolts.
9. Rev your Dremel!
