MPPCNCFC - 3D printed 4-axis-foam-cutter-hardware


Hey guys! Here a link to Thingiverse were I published the 3D-files. I have designed a 3D printed hardware for 4-axis foamcutter. Using Aluminium Profil 20x50 mm. Have fun with it.

That might be the most useful thing I've ever seen posted to the 'verse. Thanks for sharing. I will certainly give it a closer look.

Thank you for the praiseworthy words... Weather is too nice in the moment so I do nothing for the machine. Im on the airfield... Next work will be machining the M8 threaded rods on every side.

By the way: In this dimension y = 1000 mm and z = 500 mm aluminiumtube. the workspace will be 810 mm (y) to 300 mm (z). I think a 1300 mm hotwire bow is long enough to cut profils out of 1000 mm foam sheets.

Baseplate for hotwire holder and bow holder


See pictures...

I add this new grey part at thingiverse, today. Second print tomorrow...

This machine is a work in progress. Much things to do before the "maiden" cut is possible... Patience please...

Next work: Test the electronic components.

Waiting for: 2 energy chains, 2 wooden baseplates, 2 hotwire holder, cables, 4 endswitches and so on...

To design: Baseplates for endswitches, Baseplates for energy chains, a box to install all the elctronics inside.

my machine is 800x400x1200 to 14000 mm and i can cut most things i need for fuz cutting it good to have more height 600mm is good

Hello,

Very great work ! A member of jedicut.com community published another project of "foam cutter hardware" very easy to build (I have one).

Do you published video ?

Do you have any idea of the cost of this hardware ?

Thanks for sharing

Sorry no video jet. I am waiting for parts. Endswiches, Arduino and ramps etc.

Costs:
Aluminium tubes 33 Euro
Bearings 15 Euro
Printed Parts 15 Euro
Stepper 40 Euro
Screws 10 Euro
Arduino Ramps 25 Euro
Energy chains 4 Euro
Wood Baseplates 5 Euro
Other parts 10 Euro

Round about 150 Euro costs of hardware.

First computer controlled moves of the machine:

mppcncfc - first moves (2 min 38 sec)


Using Arduino Mega and ramps 1.4 and DevCnc Foam as cutting software. Still a first step in completing the machine.
