rBot is a 3d printed low cost CNC that fits perfectly around a IKEA Malm chest. It is designed to be both: easy to print and easy to build.
All parts of rBot are designed from the ground up to be perfectly printable. Almost every part can be printed without any supports.
rBot was not made to be the best and most accurate CNC. It was designed to test the limits of a 3d printer. Additionally it is a nice add-on for your existing Ikea furniture.
The design goal was to create a new gadget for home laboratories that is fun to build, easy to print and incredibly useful.
You can mount different tools on rBot. Right now a milling machine and a pen holder are available. A 3D printing add-on will follow within the next weeks. (Detailed Timeline)
