LOM-fabbing with a CNC-repstrap
... i'll post some images of my first LOM-fabbing (LOM=Laminated-Object-Modelling/Manufacturing) with a CNC-repstrap and a minidrill.
As you can see, with this method it's no problem to make overhangs or complex geometries out from single prefabbed sheets:
Here is the reactivated CNC-system:
Outputting a single sheet - the software:
Outputting a single sheet - milling:
I'm waiting to by a 'serious' millhead, then i'll make some 'real' parts needed for going further with my tripod-repstrap and the dispenser-heads.
One of the next goals is a software or conversion for automated slicing the LOM-sheets from a STL-file, so it would be much easier to process ...
Here you can find the complete image-sequence in ZIP-archives ...
