    Nailed it on the head, really. The fact that he already has a CNC and recognizes the value of the MPCNC is really apropos.

    Yup, I am happy.

    He said he doesn’t plan on building one as he has others, cool project for those who don’t want to spend much and have a 3d printer, “pretty neat”, he also thinks it is rigid for what it is.

    That was it, more than an hour stream but just mentions it for just over a minute. Just kind feels cool because he knew the MPCNC meant Mostly printed CNC and had a positive comment about it. So many people make such crap assumptions about it it is pretty refreshing to hear a positive assumption (unless he has used it somewhere, there are a ton of aussie users).

    Been following him for a while on and off. Easily one of the best 3D printing channels I’ve seen so far. He has mechanical design experience, so he recognizes good and bad designs fairly well.

     

    I love my MPCNC, but it is the very first public version with the exception of the corner blocks. It has been moved and reassembled a few times and the PLA simply hasn’t held up. No fault to the design. I can’t wait to fix it up (aka build newest version) after I graduate and have my printer back up and running.

    I don’t think there are to many who have moved it, and if they have hopefully not more than once. A few of mine go though many cycles of building as I prototype stuff and or update things but I tend to do all my hardware loose, where as some split there parts from gorilla tightening the bolts. I do see how moving it a few times could cause issues though if you aren’t moving the whole table.

    Well, the moving process wasn’t easy on it. Once from where I built it to home 300 miles north. Partially disassembled. That move wasn’t too rough on it (some parts damaged in junk shifting), but the rest were. It has moved 3 times in the house to different locations. All 3 times it was assembled but not screwed to a solid base. I think the main thing is that there is a wide range of temperature and humidity conditions. I accidentally left it assembled in our garage through a cold winter. The PLA was super brittle when I went to move it inside.
