Dremel Quick-Fit Mount by csweichel Jan 9, 2013

Description

Does what it says: let's you mount a Dremel on your Quick-Fit carriage (via the Dremels 3/4-12 thread).

Here is a video of it in action: youtube.com/watch?v=3xa4viowcVM

Uses the "Screw library" from syvwlch (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:8793)

Thought about the flex shaft, but apparently it's less precise and weight is not really a concern here as moving fast is not a priority here (precision over speed). Also, I think others have created FlexShaft holes for RepRaps - though not for the QuickFit.

Regarding software, I'm running a recent Marlin build using pronterface as host. Preparing the GCode side of things is less straight forward, but I've tried to write it up here: http://32leav.es/?p=1098 - scripts can be found here: https://github.com/32leaves/gc...

Dig it!

Suggestion, use the flex shaft adapter to lessen the weight.
and a Q, what software? Slice, host & firmware?

Link established :)

I was quite worried about the flex before I tried it. Now, after going through wood with this thing, I'm a bit more confident this actually works as intended. The thread works surprisingly well.

The test part was printed with an infill of 30% and 0.2mm layer height.

It is a good suggestion, though and I might add lateral support after I've tried milling some PCBs or other, harder stuff.

Link to that "Quick-Fit carriage"?

I suggest to brace the Dremel along all of it's shaft because this will flex on even slight (for a Dremel) lateral forces.
