We have an epilog laser cutter around here and I was wondering if it would possibly work as a base for a 3d printer? Here is a Dropbox photo album of the laser cutter. I am thinking I will have to get a new control system but I am unsure if I will be able to use the motor controllers or if they are embedded in the current control's board. I am also unsure if it has fine enough control on the z axis but if not that can be modified.
What would be a good head to look at? Any other thoughts?
