Creation quality: 5.0/5 (2 votes)
Evaluation of members on the printability, utility, level of detail, etc.

3D model description

At today this is only a proof of concept
I just started printing all items, you'll be noticed about little necessary adjustments in NEWS section at BOP

Read always NEWS below

Well, this is V4 and final version of my lathe.
It features:
- optional CNC via Arduino Mega and RAMPS; if you don't want it just omit related items
- continuously variable speed via strong and much better printable pulleys
- rotating tools turret 0-360° at 45° steps
- counterpoint carriage sliding via T8 lead screw, manual action
- can accomodate every printed 80mm chuck or optional metal one from China
- supports width reduced to 20mm, no one can spend 39 hours to print just one support!

Among downloaded files you'll find a text file with the link to download the whole project.

I hope you like it...
