Open Source Hardware: Fraizilla CNC Cutter Crowdfunding

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I don't have so much time to publish my prints anymore, and here is the reason why:

I founded Chantier Libre a non-profit fablab 3 years ago, which promotes the use of libre softwares and open hardware. Of course the first tool we used was my trusty old Ultimaker Original.

We launched a crowdfunding campaign to allow us to build more machines (SLA and ceramic 3D printer, big size 3D printer, thermoforming machine...) and mainly to build the first prototype for our openhardware big CNC machine Fraizilla.

This CNC is designed to cut 2.5x1.25m panels for projects like Opendesk or Wikihouse.

The estimated cost is under 6500€.

The design is easily extendable. The steel frame can be build in a workshop with lasercutter and metalsheet folding machines. All the other components are standard an easy to find online.

Here is a video introducing Fraizilla:

 

You can support us so that we publish all the design files (freecad files and building instructions):

And in case you wonder, the name Fraizilla is because in french fraise means strawberry and cutter, and the machine is big and powerfull ;-)
