This is an alternative build-platform for the Thing-o-Matic.
(May also fit the Cupcake, You'll have to try.)
Using the ABP-quick-release ( thingiverse.com/thing:8878 )
you can quickly switch your automated build platform for this platform and using
the Repman toolhead adapter ( thingiverse.com/thing:8738 )
and Dremel Milling Toolhead ( thingiverse.com/thing:1703 )
you can start milling PCBs.
Make mechanics, enclosures AND electronics on your desktop factory!
I'm currently preparing a video explaining all the steps
from printing the parts down to setting up VIsolate
for optimized voronoi milling and then actually
milling a spare Thing-o-Matic end-stop.
This is already version 1.2 of the platform while I used version 1.1 .
The difference is that you can level the platform using 4 small bolts now.
ComponentTraces.pho is a nice file to test this.
It is the upper side of the v1.2 mechanical end-stop for a Thing-o-Matic.
(You can have 3 additional end-stops + 1 emergency-stop -switch.)
In the video I describe the basics of running vIsolate
( sourceforge.net/projects/visolate/ )
to do optimized voronoi milling of that PCB.
There are lots of other programs to do the g-code generation too.
