low – cost DIY milling machine

2014-02-25 15.25.35

As a master thesis I am designing and creating a low cost milling machine.

Lots of work  has already been done and the first prototype is up and running.

It has the following specs:

- 0.2 mm accuracy while milling in wood @ 1500 mm/ min in layers of 1 mm

- dimensions: 50 cm x 50 cm x 60 cm

- max. dimensions workpiece: 32 cm x 32 cm x 8 cm

- used materials: Birch plywood (6 mm), ABS-plastic, aluminium

- price < €1000 (all parts included)


Some better movies and pictures will be uploaded later on.
