    So I almost had all the parts printed and the wood cutout when I saw V2. I got to have the latest version of course so I’m printing the v2 parts.

    So should I paint the wood parts black or just leave it as is? All my printed parts will be translucent red pla. I painted the v1 parts black but if I were to paint v2 I’d use something with much more shine or glossy look.

    Black shows saw dust…wood is like camouflage for saw dust.

    Ahh good point. I will just leave it as is. Looks like this is 1/4 mdf right?

    Nope 1/4″ and 1/2″. I have updated the parts page.

    Sorry, 1/4″ for the dewalt plate, and 1/2″ for the sides. Sorry, I will go in and clarify that right now.

    Okay no problem. So I have one side done, the second failed for some reason. I still have plenty of 1/4″ to cut the dewalt plate.

    I have this one piece printed for V2. This translucent red filament is great! Looks good.  I had printed 21 pieces of the V1, but I have to have the latest of course!

    Is there a list of parts that need printed for V2? I’m not sure about quantities.

    I usually get this EMT from Home Depot. With that in mind I went and got the 1” x 10’ conduit. $10 a piece. Turns out that is the inside dimensions. The outside is 29.5 ish mm. The 3/4” conduit is 23.5mm.

    Where would I get the correct size for this LRCNC?

    Oh no….stainless tubing is what you are looking for usually from a metal supplier.

    Besides look, what does stainless steel do for me? It’s about twice the price.

    More rigid. On the MPCNC parts page or FAQ’s page you can see a “quick and dirty” test I did. A 5′ span needs all the help it can get.

    I will go with Stainless. Will this work? Seems to be the right wall thickness.

    Yes that should work20180810_172120_resized

    The picture of my tube was to test the functionality of the insert into content.

    Looks like it was some sort of caching issue, I have no idea….

    Build looks amazing though!

    Yes it does! I’m really impressed with the quality and design of the LRCNC. I’d rank this up there with one of the best things I’ve every 3D printed! Great job Ryan!!

    Is this normal to have that gap?

    8ADD7569-3D18-466E-ABF5-1E5FCCBD8C4E

    Is this stainless as shiny as it will be or should I treat it with something?

    I’m pretty sure that gap needs to be there. If there’s no gap, then how can you be sure you are tightening the pieces together?

    Stainless is usually a shiny metal because of its surface finish and treatment.

    The gap is expected.  You don’t want to overtighten the assembly, it will just crack the plastic.  Just make it tight enough that the pipes do not move.  This is a lesson I hope I don’t need to learn again – I had to reprint a couple of the parts for my MPCNC because I cracked them when I was assembling them.

    The rail can not extend all the way through. There is a ridge in the printed part. When you lower it to fit the gap should be smaller, but yes there should be a 2-3mm gap a bit less when snugged up.
