Here is my first real project made with the MPCNC. I will need to redo it since there was an issue with the g code on one of the letters. This is something my wife asked for and will be a great Christmas present

Dang that thing is huge! Did you make a giant machine or move the part half way through? If you made a big machine you need to show me! I think that is in the release license, cool machine have to be shown off! Haha, so cool either way good job!November 21, 2015 at 12:20 pm #4313
My wife is trying to talk me into making it big enough to cut these 6′ boards in 1 cut but this one was done by re-positioning for each letter. I found the error and I am heading out to get a new board to cut a new one now that I have the snow cleared off the driveway.
Thanks for making such a great design and sharing it with all of us. I wish I had the creativity to design things like this like you!

Thanks for the kind words, This was designed on shear will power. I wanted a CNC mill that bad.
If you give in to the bosses’ request I would love to see a 6 foot machine.January 11, 2016 at 10:44 am #5756
Ryan- The design calls for over 2×2 to have support along the rails. The one I am building is 4×4 (which really means 4.5×4.5ft), has anyone designed these support structures yet?

That completely depends on what you are doing with the machine at that size and what tolerances you expect.
Yes someone did make a support on thingiverse. If you can’t find it let me know and I can look after my tax appointment. (taxes are a bummer).January 11, 2016 at 11:13 am #5759
