Make custom PCBs with the Sienci CNC and FlatCAM!

I’ve always wanted to make my own PCBs – and with a CNC machine, a few tool bits and a few pieces of software it’s actually a super fast and straightforward process! In this video, I show how I used Eagle and FlatCam to create an isolation-routed circuit board on the Sienci Mill One, complete with a milled-out contour and all holes drilled.

3D Print ANYWHERE

I’m converting my Printrbot Play into an off-grid, mobile 3D printer! No need for power or wifi – it’s all built in using Octoprint, access point mode and charging support.

Live: Building the Original Prusa i3 MK3!

The assembled Prusa i3 MK3 printed well, but the big selling point – the new sensors – didn’t perform as expected. Today we check out how easy the MK3 is to assemble and whether the kit is “smarter” while still printing as nicely!

Building a Hangprinter!

If you want to 3D print really large parts, you have two options – either build a really large 3D printer with its own rigid frame or use the frame you already have: Your house! And that’s exactly what the Hangprinter is doing: It’s a fully featured frameless 3D printer that uses the room it’s set up in as a frame and suspends itself from the walls and ceiling with high-strength line.
