You all know and love the additive method of 3d printing with the plastruder. And now you can try the subtractive method by using this dremel attachment that i have been thinking of making for a while now, and finally sat down yesterday and designed it.

It uses the same holes as the plastruder for mounting, and even the same screws

It is now printed, mounted and tested.


Take dremel mount 1 and 2 and cut them in two and screw them together to make a tight fit around your dremel machine, use a hot glue gun and attach them to the dino in a way that works for you and your dremel.

Just print it, use it and love it;)

The mount is for Dremel 3000?

Do you have any example videos or pictures of making things with this subtraction method? Seems like it would be cool.

So, does this work well? Skeinforge has a subtractive method, but I'm a little unsure how much exactly your could get made with this

I still haven't had the time to try this out, but i guess that it would work just fine when you adjust the speed down slow and have milling tool at the end of the dremel..

But as long as nobody try this, it is just an educated guess for now...

Do you have any luck milling or engraving with this mount? PCB milling would be a nice addition to the Makerbot's features

I am currently working on a different project for the moment, so i have not had the time to do any testing at all.

All in due time;)


Can you say PCB!!!!! I LOVE IT. :)

Sweet! Thanks for designing this.

Will come handy in future.

No prob..

I live to please :)

"use a hot glue gun" ... can you get your dremel out again?

Well, you dont actually glue the dremel to the mounting brackets, but you glue the dremel-mounts to the dinos.

Its my fault for not making this clearer, and i see i have forgotten to mention something, and that is that you have to cut the dremel-mounts 1 and 2 in half. (I will upload more pictures to show this)


I was talking to somebody just yesterday about how someone had hooked a dremel up to a reprap and how I was hoping to see one for a cupcake, too. :)

Just curious: any reason you didn't go for a mount for a flex-shaft instead?

Webca - in reply to DaveD

The only reason is that i dont have a flex-shaft, i only have this dremel-model, so i just wanted to be able to use my dremel with my beloved makerbot ;)

And i see someone has already made one:
