CNC stepper motor Answered

Hello, I would like to use my 3 printer scanners I recently salvaged for a CNC. Would you expect the motors to be able to cut aluminum with a multi-speed dremel? If there is enough torque, it would be sufficient to make a 3d printer right?

Not quickly if at all. The printer motors will be relatively low power motors.

You may be able to make the 3D printer as there is no cutting effort required.

Thanks - there are a large number of CNC projects here on Instructables you should review a few to help you decide on how to proceed.
