DIY Dremel CNC #1 design and parts (Arduino, aluminum profiles, 3D printed parts)

3D model description
DIY CNC machine is a very popular project on the internet, a lot of people made different versions but I want to show you how I made my own CNC machine with a Dremel as a spindle. Personally, I think that CNC machine is kind of an upgrade of a 3D printer, you can create stronger parts made out of wood or metal but it also has some limitations (that's a topic for another video). To learn more check out my video about this:
That's just the first part, there will be more so make sure to subscribe!
Also keep in mind that this is work in progress so I may change some models or something in the design. If you have any questions feel free to ask me!
Below you can find parts that I will use to build this machine.

T8 CNC machine:

My design:

What we will need, amount in ():
-Dremel tool
-Aluminium Profiles 20x20x600mm (5)
-12mm rod (about 2 meters)
-500mm long trapezoidal lead screw 8mm (2):
-300mm long trapezoidal lead screw 8mm (2):
-12mm linear bearing (6):
-5 to 8mm coupler (5):
-T nut (50):

-Arduino+CNC shield+stepper drivers:
-Power supply:
-Stepper motors (4):
-Limit switches:
-AC IEC socket with switch:

In the first part of my DIY Dremel CNC, I will show you how my design looks like (if you have any idea on how to make it better or you see some problems please let me know :)) I will also show you all the parts that I will use in next parts of this short series. In the next two or three videos, we will assemble this machine and hopefully mill some stuff.

I always wanted to have one of those fancy CNC machines that can mill metals. It's cool and it gives you so many possibilities for next projects! I already have few ideas for projects with a CNC machine :)
