Very small router table, using a Makita Handheld Router*. I originally made it larger, but had to make it smaller to be printable from a single 1kg spool (it uses about 1kg of plastic). I’ve been using it with fillet templates and flush trim router bits* to cut panels for an adaptive kayak seat the Environmental Traveling Companions are making.
After printing, parts of the clamp may need to be separated from the shell with a small spatula. There are spots for two small M3 socket cap screws under the clamp to prevent it from wearing in those spots.
The rubber base is optional, as is the geared wheel (the wheel can get jammed from material falling into the gears so it may be better to leave it out).
I also added a Mini Router Table, which is larger than the one in the picture (240mm across instead of 180mm – I haven’t tried printing the larger version).
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
