I used the threads Library with 19mm diameter and 2mm pitch.
I'm looking to make a mount for my dremel. Not for a printer, but to make some accessories. What thread size did you use?
Thank you, I was planning to buy one, now I will plan to create bigger CNC to fit my dramel.

So this is like a mini CNC router? Oustanding work.

Will the weight of the dremel affect the Printer in the long run?
There is attachment head from Dramel - extension that is very light (around $40) and bowden type driven.
I used that before, but its a lot louder, and the rpm is not very consistent, when it comes to parts that need some more torque it slows down and turns faster afterwards so the finish is not as good.

No, I don't thinks so. But I also did some reinforcement to the z-axis to get better tolerances.
Nice result, I would have never believed that milling metal is possible with an reprap style 3D printer.
How high was your feed rate for the aluminium board?
Its possible, but not very quick. As far as i can recall I milled it with a 3mm 2-flute end mill, 0.4mm pass depth and around 70mm/min... So really slow. Working on stiffening the frame now, especially the Z-axis
Hello, really nice work, how do you drive the system? Prepare and send the gcode? Are u using some special software or plugin in some known software? Thx!
I'm playing with Vectric VCarvePro right now. I made a custom template for gcode export and use the fan output (M106/M107) to switch a relais to power the dremel.
Right now I'm playing with Vectic VCarvePro and made a custom template for the gcode export. For spindle start and stop I use the fan (M106/M107) and attached a relais, which switches the dremel, to the fan output on the ramps.
