Given the existence of affordable 5 axis CAM software (Autodesk Fusion 360), it’d be fun and educational to make a 5 axis mill!

MakeItZone probably has enough inventory on hand to create a prototype:

  • 4 or 5 nema 17 steppers
  • RAMPs board
    • 5 axis capable
    • Note: may need to order some more stepper driver breakout boards
  • inventables quiet spindle + controller

First question is would be what is the most common configuration of the 5 axis? Ie spinning turntable for workpiece or rotatable spindle holder?
