Search for a "fablab" in your area is like a copyshop printing 3D files...

Buy a printer...


I think a 3D-printer is the right stuff for every rc-modeller. You can buy cheap models round 200 $. My machine is printed on such a simple Printer. Acrylic Geeetech prusa I3 pro B. The printed parts have not the best surface but you see it works, too.

Other way is you cut the parts from any other material. I have seen such machines like my MPPCNCFC made of plywood or metalsheets. The principe is always the same and very simple.

This looks like a great design! I like your use of aluminum tubes for the rails.

What program did you use to model this, and would you be willing to share your source models? Metric tube is expensive and difficult to find here. I'd like to make a version for inch size tubing if that's OK with you.

Breaker of things...
Hi Guys,
This is my first post here and I'm glad I found this thread!

Firstly, THANK YOU to Kyrill, I looked at many designs and yours came out top!
Well done!

I have built but not completed my cutter and I am at a bit of a junction...
I am stuck on what power supply to use and the motors I have NEMA17's don't have plugs on the leads and there's not info on how to wire them??

*EDIT* It's ok.... I've found the info online...

Can you fine people help me out?

I will post pictures soon but then I guess you know what it looks like! Lol
