This weekend I designed a Foamcutter. This projekt ist still in progress but I think it is ready about 70%.
To use the foamcutter you need two portals.


The printable parts are printered with PLA on my fabbster

8x 16mm rods
8x linear bearing 16mm SCS16UU
4x NEMA 17 Stepper
4x bearings (todo)
4x threaded rod
1x heating wire
.x Some screws

CNC Controler Board

What is still missing:

  • the bearings for the threaded rods
  • the top part to hold the vertical axis and rods

Not up to now. But maybe in the next month, because I need it.

Did you ever finish this?

Yesterday I did a small redesign and added some parts I will upload this evening.

Thanks! What will you be using for software? 

I think I will use Foamworks to create and Mach3 to control the Foamcutter
