Open-source wire bending CNC machine for wires at 1mm and less in diameter.
Don't miss a chance to build your own wire bending machine!
Detailed instructions how to build one can be found here https://www.instructables.com/id/Spring-Making-Wire-Bending-Machine/
All STL files are now available in a git repository on GitHub. Feel free to download and print. I will post instructions on how to build the whole machines shortly.
Yes, it can make springs. Totally satisfying to watch. The precision is incredible. I am really proud of this machine.
My Wire Bending Machine Finally Works! And it is incredibly precise!
Few hex made by the machine. They are identical. Two sizes.
New wire feeding gears assembly is ready. Using welder machine feeder gear. It's incredible, works like a charm. I will share the overall progress tomorrow.
The first successful bend. A lot of scrapped wire was made in the process. Still, the biggest problem is insufficient adhesion of drive gears.
The new assembly is ready, will test it tomorrow. I will upload all the STL files if it works.
Today I am printing new version of drive gears assembly and bending tool. It should improve it significantly.
