Modifying a Makerbot for PCB milling

Makerbot and Dremel, unite!

Makerbot owner Keith has been chronicling his efforts to mill PCB boards with a Makerbot on his blog (thanks Keith!). He’s using a Dremel mounted in the place of the print head. The basic idea works since a Makerbot is already designed to control movement along the x- and y-axes, but PCB boards put up more of a fight than heated plastic filament.

You can read more about his first effort, the improved mount, and the improved build platform on his blog.
