Summary

This is an add-on to ZMorph 3d printer allowing you to mount a dremel on standard ZMorph carriage and use it as a small milling machine.

Instructions

use 4 M4 screws to attach two carriage mounts to the round part. Then insert another M4 screws with nuts inside, so after inserting the dremel they can be tightened and will provide secure mounting for it.
After the dremel is mounted attach it to the carriage with one M4 screw.

Standard zMorph extruder can be found here (with carriage)

dremel.stl is an older version, please avoid using it (it's here only for compatibility)

good work, but which version of dremel do you use?

i have Dremel 4000 and it doesnt work. Dremel is to big!

Could you make the design files available?

Video is marked as private and therefor not available. Please fix this.

Hi, I was using my own gcode generator for it... but you can easily use any software that is dedicated for CNC machines. Just make sure you work in mm (G21 code), and that you view the file in text editor before printing to verify everything... you might want to remove some unnecessary code in the header.
Btw, in May/June we will be releasing dedicated software for ZMorph machine, it will feature path generation for dremel... stay tuned ! (and check http://www.zmorph3d.comwww.zmorph3d.com from time to time)

Is this done using a RAMPs? and is there somewhere I can find a tutorial on how to do this?

I know its 4 years later but for anyone else looking at this, you can control a dremel on/off using RAMPS by putting a 5v relay on one of the unused digital pins and mapping it in your firmware.

what software do you use for g code generation?

What do you use to generate the g code for it?
