Milling-machine with PLA parts

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Milling-machine with PLA parts



this is my new hobby milling-machine  with 800x500mm workspace. Contains about 4kg of PLA for spindle-mounts, e-chains, suction system, end caps...

PLA works great for this. I have just added thermal isolation plates between the motors and the spindle-mounts.

that is cool !  what spindle is that?


There is a Kress (AMB) FME800 Spindle inside. The idea behind was to place all components of the z-axis side by side to minimize the distance between the center of the spindle and the big aluminium bridge. But works only with a flat basic plate without any components (guide rails/spindles/e-chain) at the sides.
