PCB Milling Using a 3D Printer

I’ve made a number of projects and Instructables with electronic circuits. And most of them used a prototyping PCB. This works fine, and it’s a quick way to finish a project. But creating a PCB yourself gives a project a more professional appearance. It looks less messy, and reduces the chance of fa…By: Gosse Adema(…)


Two Sided PCB Making With a 3D Printer

I will try to explain the making of an isolation router type two-sided PCB with a help of a modified 3d printer.This page inspired me to use my 3d printer for PCB making. Actually, the method described on that page works well enough. If you follow the steps you probably optain a well crafted one-sid…By:(…)


CoreBot – CoreXY 3D Printer

I wanted to built a really reliable printer which is ready for the E3D tool changing mechanism, when it is finally realeased. At this stage this is only a big CoreXY machine because the E3D tool changer is not released yet. I also have doubts that the clamping / tool changing mechanism can bring up(…)


LED 3D Printer Bed Leveling Tool

Being new to 3D printing I found leveling the bed a challenge particularly on printers without auto bed leveling. This 3D Printer Bed Leveling Tool uses a Pulse Induction Metal Detection Sensor and a LED Bar Graph to show the relative distance from the Print Head to the hotbed. This is an independen…By: TechKiwiGadgets Continue(…)
