X carve with a print heaad

I would like to mess around with a 3D printer. Has anyone added one to the x carve. or what is a good cheap printer.

0.4mm Nozzle MK9 Mod Extruder Print Head
For 30.00

Look for Prusa i3 on ebay. Cheap and they work. Remember, you get what you pay for though. Do some more research before you commit.

well, I bought a version of the I3. I shou;d get it in a couple days and then the fun begins. Combining the work of the printer and xcarve is sort of exciting.

One can add a print head: http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/RepStrapOko

but it’s arguably better just to get a second machine as noted at: http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/3D_Printing

Absolutely. I’ve created custom jigs for special projects. Worked real well. I’ve also made some really handy clamps. I hope it works out for you.
