5axismaker Multi-fabricator: Mill, Scan, Print, Spray & Cut

by Lambert Varias

We’ve seen a couple of compact machines that can print, scan or mill objects. Fedor Gridnev and Elena Gaidar want to raise the bar for affordable workshop machines with the 5axismaker. It’s a 5-axis milling machine, a 3D printer, a 3D scanner, a water jet cutter and a wire cutter in one.

In theory, you’ll be able to modify the 5axismaker’s function simply by switching its tool head. However, as of this writing, it appears that only the 5-axis milling head has been developed. But even still, an affordable 5-axis machine is a welcome development. In machining, 5-axis means that not only can a machine’s arm move in three dimensions, its milling head rotates on two axes as well. This makes it able to carve complex shapes in one go, whereas 3-axis machines might need multiple passes or multiple machines to create the same object. It can also lead to faster build times and more durable outputs.

You’ll be able to support the 5axismaker through Kickstarter starting tomorrow, or check out the 5axismaker website for more information. A pledge of £4,499 (~$7,330 USD) gets you a fully-assembled 5axismaker as a reward. It’s definitely not for beginners or hobbyists, but if it can perform all five of its functions well enough then overall it’s still going to be quite the steal.
