    Hi,

    I am thinking abaout building MPCNC and was just wondering if printing parts in Polycarbonate and using steel tubes instead of conduit would help with the rigidity of the frame? And if it would, would it be an improvement worth the hassle?

    Stainless is a noticeable difference, the rest of the parts are fine in any material except the XYZ parts, those should be a rigid material…PLA is really good for all the parts.

    Here is a very clear chart, https://www.simplify3d.com/support/materials-guide/properties-table/
