Mantis 9 on PCWorld!

The Mantis 9 and Eat your Face are on PC World:

Check out slide 8!


  1. Maybe I'm slow, but I see a lot of information on how to MAKE the bot but very little on how to USE it. Engraving chocolate and cutting through copper sheeting is all I can find. Could I mill an aluminum block flat to within .001"? Drill a whole through a 2" steel block? Basically, what are the capabilities/limitations?

  2. Hey dr

    I believe that the videos and support are for their internal group - looking at the power output of the motor, I would be very suprised if you could cut aluminium at any real speed. Modellers wax and wood seem to be a much better pace for it. They are clearly building it with circuit boards in mind - so it is engineered to that target. You could reasonably use a higher powered high speed brushless motor but you start to put stress on your Y axis.

    As to what you do with it - it is a CNC mill - Either hook it up to reprap style electronics and use it as a repmll - or you could use any of the CNC side of it (Mach3 etc).

    They are just showing you how to make one part of your toolchain. They are not showing you the complete system, nor what to do with it. I would also prefer that they do that, but I haven't got arround to documenting and uploading mine either - so I can't fault them.


  3. My life is beautiful thanks to you, Mein Helfer. Lord Jesus in my life as a candle light in the darkness. You showed me the meaning of faith with your words. I know that even when I cried all day thinking about how to recover, you were not sleeping, you were dear to me. I contacted the herbal center Dr Itua, who lived in West Africa. A friend of mine here in Hamburg is also from Africa. She told me about African herbs but I was nervous. I am very afraid when it comes to Africa because I heard many terrible things about them because of my Christianity. god for direction, take a bold step and get in touch with him in the email and then move to WhatsApp, he asked me if I can come for treatment or I want a delivery, I told him I wanted to know him I buy ticket in 2 ways to Africa To meet Dr. Itua, I went there and I was speechless from the people I saw there. Patent, sick people. Itua is a god sent to the world, I told my pastor about what I am doing, Pastor Bill Scheer. We have a real battle beautifully with Spirit and Flesh. Adoration that same night. He prayed for me and asked me to lead. I spent 2 weeks and 2 days in Africa at Dr Itua Herbal Home. After the treatment, he asked me to meet his nurse for the HIV test when I did it. It was negative, I asked my friend to take me to another nearby hospital when I arrived, it was negative. I was overwhite with the result, but happy inside of me. We went with Dr. Itua, I thank him but I explain that I do not have enough to show him my appreciation, that he understands my situation, but I promise that he will testify about his good work. Thank God for my dear friend, Emma, I know I could be reading this now, I want to thank you. And many thanks to Dr. Itua Herbal Center. He gave me his calendar that I put on my wall in my house.
