Thought this might interest a few people that do not want to build a second machine for 3D printing but use their own CNC Machine.

Okay not as fast as a RepRap as they use belts which can move very rapidly. But the accuracy is spot on and you can just set it running and walk away.

I have detailed how you can use your existing CNC Controller and designed a breakout board to connect to it. This can be used with the popular Sanguino RepRap controller board and hence use the RepRap software available.
