I have been having a look at Design and Makes CraftCNC and thought it would be a great side project as I have a Proxxon (German version of the Dremel). I thought it would be nice to have a small unit to play with to expand my skills without having to go the the workshop to do it.
I just got a price for cutting the 10mm parts in acrylic for which the dxf is set for a 600 x 400 laser. Would you believe they wanted $NZ265 for just those 2 sheets cut and there would be more for the other 8 sheets in 3mm and 5mm. At that rate it would be close to the cost of an S3 by the time I have printed the 3d parts as well.
At this stage the project is on the back burner unless I can get the dxfs converted to cut on the S3 - beyond my skill at this stage.
I am following the project on the Vectric site as there seems to be a few folks interested in the idea and one who has a build underway.
Maybe one day I can fit a Laser to the S3 and at current rates make my fortune:wink:
