Cupcake CNC transformer

Cupcake Xformer

Jmiller made a robo-bre

So Make: recently introduced a contest to give away a Cupcake CNC FDM machine kit, and I came up with this entry… What’s cooler than transformers? A Cupcake CNC transformer with a Bre head? This is a fully articulated assembly that transforms from a Cupcake CNC to a Bre-bot. I started with a snap-together design (see the attached concept sketches) but migrated to a bolt-together kit or various reasons. The final design allows for fine adjustment of the joint tension so the transformer can stand in any position but still be movable, positionable, transformable!
