New, Revised, BURLY, MPCNC Center Parts

Updated Parts! I would like to introduce you to the new "Burly" parts. It has been more than 2 years since the "525" (5/25/16) parts were released and I am very excited as I have been toying around with these ideas ever since. No new hardware is needed just some new...

The LowRider2 CNC

The LowRider2 CNC This is my revised version of a CNC router that can handle full sheet material! Of course you can go smaller. If the MPCNC is not big enough for you this picks up where that left off. Both versions are now live, links on the main pages....

Alex on Hackaday!

Alex has been working on his Piper printer idea for a little while, here is his thread. His recent trip to the East Coast Rep Rap Festival with it got him a nice piece on Hackaday. Being partially inspired by the MPCNC it uses conduit and can be made to any size...

Aluminum Guide

This guide is long over-due but I suppose better late than never. Over the past year, my MPCNC has been a gateway machine that got me introduced into the CNC world. I started off with a 3D printing setup, but always wanted to do some metal work. I now use...

Thomas Sanladerer -Toms3D- MRRF2018

The Midwest Rep Rap Festival was amazing. I didn't get to see too much, instead I hung out and talked with so many cool people instead. Ron saved me a place to set up Friday afternoon and Barry showed up on Saturday with a bunch of his projects. Thank you both for...

New foot.

It is finally here, two years later, a new foot. Why, this one is better. Why is it better, more rigid and easy to adjust. Use some number 6 or equivalent screws and washers to hold them down. There are slotted and oversized holes so you can move them around to get...

Circuit Cellar and Ed Nisely

The current March 2018 issue of Circuit Cellar has a very informative article in it. Ed Nisley did an in depth look at steppers and drivers. If you have ever been lost as to what effect speed and step rate have on your steppers this should clear it up. This really...
