I’m pretty freakin excited about this! I bought a 3D printer just to have something to tinker with, then I stumbled onto the mpcnc. I have all the parts being shipped, and I hope to have it finished in the next few weeks. I figured I might as well share the progress with everyone here. And I’m sure I’ll have some questions along the way about the electronics.
If you’re wondering why it looks like a Denver Broncos machine… it’s only because I had orange and blue pla filament on hand. Plus, my neighbor hooked me up with some orange conduit. Go Steelers!

Ryan, what you’ve created here is absolutely amazing! I’m very jealous of your CAD skills. The way everything fits together perfectly is very impressive. My friends and family think I’m the smart guy because I’ve figured out how to put this thing together, but you’re the man!

Awesome! Is the conduit painted?November 19, 2018 at 9:17 pm #76279
No, it can be purchased in a bunch of different colors. My neighbor is an electrician so he picked some up for me.November 20, 2018 at 4:50 am #76293
Be interested in how long that color lasts on the bearing surfaces.

Me too, Barry. I’m not very confident that it’ll last for long. But hey, compared to how the rest of my garage looks, even scratched conduit is an improvement 🙂

So, I’m wondering if it’s worth printing the new burly parts. Anyone have some thoughts?November 20, 2018 at 6:19 am #76298
Also… I’ve been using a Raspberry pi and Octoprint on my 3d printer. Is that a possibility for the MPCNC?November 20, 2018 at 6:54 am #76299
