A Cheapes CNC Acrylic board cutter with hot wire.
Yukkuri means slow but also means the girl "ゆっくり霊夢"。It is famous in Nico-TECH (Yet another Maker movement).
Please see this video site to know about Nico-TECH party.
*Now,Here is Rev.B(Strong cooling) 3D model of parts and so on will be camming soon,video on youtube
YukkuriCut cuts acrylic(plexi grass) board with Φ0.2mm nichrome wire.It's cheap and safe way than laser cutter.
Above sample is T=5mm.You can cut T=10mm also (almost same speed as 5mm). and T=40mm!(stacked 5mm board x8).But very slow 0.03mm/sec at 1.4A heater current.
And you can make it your self About 1,5000JPY(=150USD).The cost depends on precision of XY table. My table is very cheap one ,So it have about some backlash(Not perfect circle at Φ3mm ). But it's not problem for my use. Anyway building cheap machine is Fun!Enjoy!
