ORE-Bot Side View


"ORE" stands for [Ottawa Robotics Enthusiasts]!


ORE-Bot is a bit of a grind to machine and build. We need a more mature and easier to build design in the wiki!

ORE-Bot as RepRap

Using a milling bit, this machine may be to make its own parts out of aluminum, and thus be a RepRap as well as a RepStrap.

This is at the "Proposed" stage, we haven't tried it yet. Should work.  :D

We know it will be able to print Mendels using Wade's_Geared_Extruder.

ORE-Bot as PourStrap

This is also a good candidate to be a PourStrap, a RepRap made from molds filled with Epoxy-Granite. It might then cut molds out of acrylic sheet and thus make more PourStraps ...

ORE-Bot as CNC-Router

ORE-Bot was designed to be a light-duty CNC Router for printed circuit boards.

Cutting and Pasting!

Using a subtractive tool and an additive tool, ORE-Bot may be capable of Shape_Deposition_Manufacturing.


If we do up a metric version of ORE-Bot, it will be at Metric ORE-Bot.

A few CAD Files

These CAD files only open in [CAMBAM].

We may want to use CAMBAM to export DXF files of this if there is demand.

The base is about 90% completed. The table needs several coats of varnish. The leadscrew isn't quite straight and will need some work.

The gantry needs holes for the bushings. 90% completed.

The carriage needs holes for the bushings. Also, the top and bottom plates need to be milled.

All 3 stepper motors need to be mounted.
