Anyone have plans for an adjustable Z table and also a rotary attachment for engraving glass bottles?

LightObject already sells a z lift table.

They also have a rotary attachment.

I saw those but they are kind of pricey, was hoping for a DIY solution.

There’s a rotary attachment on Thingiverse http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:299018

El rotary no funciona en k40 verdad?

The rotary attachment that is on thingyverse requires an easy driver to drive the stepper(assuming your using a stepper with different specs than the K40 y-axis motor) Has anyone used this design yet. If so, how are the connections made to the main board.( is it connected directly to the Y-axis wiring or does it need to be connected to the stepper driver inputs on the main board. Both the easy driver and the Lihuiyu mainboard use the same stepper driver. (Allego A3967)
The main difference is that the easy driver has an adjustable current pot.

@Joey_Fitzpatrick pero funciona con la tarjeta por defecto de la k40? Con la lihuiyu añadiéndole el easy driver?

This is the easy driver I was referring to. https://www.sparkfun.com/products/12779
