Ladies and gents,

I would like to introduce Contraptor a modular DIY Aluminium system to build cartesian robots like CNC-mills, plotters etc..

One part of this system is Arduino. Just now this system is getting to be converted from the imperial system to metric system. Everybody is invited to contribute.

Cheers

Reminds me a little of the old erector sets we had in the 50s. I had a model 11 1/2 set back then. Anyone else remember them?

Yup.  I can't remember why, but I only had a very minimal set of erectors.  But a ton of Lego.  

Hmmm... I bet someone's made a very tiny X-Y plotter-thingy using Lego and an Arduino.  I'll have to do some searching over the next few days...

My thoughts exactly - except mine was in the 70s.

Though I doubt my erector set would take the vibrations for long smiley
