(moved) PCB routing build platform for Thing-O-Matic
by MarcusWolschon, published
This is an alternative build-platform for the Thing-o-Matic.
(May also fit the Cupcake, You'll have to try.)
Using the ABP-quick-release ( thingiverse.com/thing:8878 )
you can quickly switch your automated build platform for this platform and using
the Repman toolhead adapter ( thingiverse.com/thing:8738 )
and Dremel Milling Toolhead ( thingiverse.com/thing:1703 )
you can start milling PCBs.
Make mechanics, enclosures AND electronics on your desktop factory!
I'm currently preparing a video explaining all the steps
from printing the parts down to setting up VIsolate
for optimized voronoi milling and then actually
milling a spare Thing-o-Matic end-stop.
This is already version 1.2 of the platform while I used version 1.1 .
The difference is that you can level the platform using 4 small bolts now.

Looks like someone designed a derivate platform for the Prusa Mendels.
Thanks for the insight.
I tried it a few times but that had to move on to other projects.
It worked "good enough" for some trivial milling.
So, are you up for updating the design according to what you have in mind?
a good example for comparison:

ComponentTraces.pho is a nice file to test this.
It is the upper side of the v1.2 mechanical end-stop for a Thing-o-Matic.
(You can have 3 additional end-stops + 1 emergency-stop -switch.)
In the video I describe the basics of running vIsolate
( sourceforge.net/projects/visolate/ )
to do optimized voronoi milling of that PCB.
There are lots of other programs to do the g-code generation too.
