    Hello all,

    I have been printing the parts for my MPCNC for almost a week now and they are coming out great.  I am going to be building my wood table and spoil board setup this weekend while some of the parts print.  I have not ordered the hardware yet because I’m trying to decide weather to source myself or order the bundle from V1.

    I only have a crappy pic of the feet printing but I will upload more to this thread as I continue the build.

    Cut the first leg from my 3/4″ EMT  with a Dremel.  I think I need something else to make the legs smooth.  Going to try a cutoff wheel.

    Here are some of the printed parts so far.

    So I messed up and printed a part half way with 35% infill.  good news is they made good clamps for holding the conduit to cut.

    Had my first underextruded print.  Of course it was on the 15 hour print 🙁

    I replaced the nozle and boden tubing and it’s printing nice again

    Frame assembled, worked on it for 6 hours so far in assembly.

    Hopefully I can make some headway with the electronics tomorrow

    Mocked up the wiring and added the belts.  Got to see it move with the smart controller 🙂  getting close!!!

    I really like how these belt tensioners turned out they made it easy to adjust the belt to get the right feel while the bed is moving
