Hi Anton,

... i atached a paste-dispenser to my CNC-mill ( [objects.reprap.org] ), but are busy with developing/testing with diodelasers, so it's actually not in use eye rolling smiley

For fabbing i'll use G-Code and a modified postprocessor for my Isel-controller, where i changed the milling-speed output for driving/controlling the dispenser.

For start printing i can apply a delay, where the dispenser-motor starts some miliseconds prior to moving the head and when stopping, i can reverse the dispenser-motor for some steps to release the pressure in the cartouche ...

Putting an extruder on a CNC mill has been done. It is one valid way to create a RepStrap.

See the MillStrap page on the wiki for some info.
