Total retail cost;
Stainless Rails $42 (with some leftovers)
Stainless Stain $38 (plenty leftover for more)
Dual Endstop Kit $331
Sleeve ~10′ $3.80
1/2″ wide tape $3
Total (so far) = $1143
Not as bad as I thought, this is literally as awesome as I can possibly build it including a huge brand new toolbox. Xzibit & West Coast Customs could not have done a better job other than adding some pop out TV’s!
I used the tape measure trick (1/2″ width) on all three axis, the cables do not touch the table at all, no worrying about clamps catching.

That is really great looking. Do you think the black will hold up to the wear? What a nice build.April 9, 2018 at 9:21 pm #57336
Thanks. No the black is already showing little grey bearing marks. It is stainless so I should not have to rotate them, so I will live with the tracks if I get to have the rest black.
I was torn between keeping a budget build for all the pictures and stuff so people would not get discouraged or intimidated, but this just shows what it can be, for a tiny bit more (not including the box). A build I didn’t make any compromises on. It took forever but now I can have my living room back. This is going into the clean garage.
Next up is the LowRider rebuild, how big of a box does Milwaukee make?April 9, 2018 at 9:26 pm #57337
You should probably make the premium low rider (cnc) build in the back of a low rider (car). Then you could drive to mrrf next year.April 9, 2018 at 9:30 pm #57338
I better be able to beat Kevin’s aluminum cutting ability…
@lionkev55 , I’m coming for you!April 9, 2018 at 10:01 pm #57340
Awesome. Nice work!!! What is the Z height?April 9, 2018 at 11:45 pm #57344
Wow…NSFW….you weren’t kidding…that things stunning! I love the tape measure trick, I’d missed that post…and it’s super cool that it worked. Great job man, I think those pics will definitely spice up the image of the device!April 10, 2018 at 1:10 am #57353
Dui, ni shuo de duiParticipant
Beautiful build, I love your toolbox.April 10, 2018 at 4:33 am #57355
Is that filament changes I see in the rambo box? That’s cool!April 10, 2018 at 5:29 am #57362
Well I’m jealous that’s for sure. Looks great man! What did the build volume turn out to be?April 10, 2018 at 7:12 am #57378
That thing looks amazing! What are you using as your 3D printer nowadays? MP3DP?April 10, 2018 at 7:23 am #57381
It is so … glossy, cool and visually appealing machine 🙂April 10, 2018 at 7:59 am #57394
Verrry nice Ryan! Really like seeing how that tape measure mod worked to keep all the wires off the deck. Have you posted those endstop modifications anywhere yet?April 10, 2018 at 8:08 am #57397

That’s a really nice looking setup. Makes me want to finish my storage under mine.April 10, 2018 at 8:57 am #57409
What is the Z height?
~3.5″ Actually it is taller than I wanted. I seriously might trim it 1/2″…Have to do some speed runs first.
Is that filament changes I see in the rambo box?
Yeah, I like the look of a few stripes, gives it some flavor…Can you smell me? Sorry too much E-40 lately, dam bay area.
What did the build volume turn out to be?
~13.5″ x 10.5″ x 3.5″
What are you using as your 3D printer nowadays? MP3DP?
Yup V1…and a V2.April 10, 2018 at 11:13 am #57434

Are those what you do your production on? Don’t mean to hi-jack thread just wondering if I should do one of those or just go for the MK3.April 10, 2018 at 1:54 pm #57445
The MK2 or 3 are going to be amazing. My printer is just super basic, zero fancy features. I love my printer and have never been big on the fancy stuff, the only other printer I would get at the moment would be a prusa. If you have an MPCNC building a printer with it is pretty cool.April 10, 2018 at 2:03 pm #57446
Love this build… but where the hell are you getting tubing so cheap?? I’m quoted $150 for 40 feet from Gerlinger Steel in Redding, calif. Even ‘cheap’ conduit is going for $20 for 10 feet up here. Thanks for sharing Ryan! I’m starting my build now and having a ball… bought all the printed parts from Jim Allen so I saved a ton of time.April 10, 2018 at 2:32 pm #57451
I wonder if using the Caswell Sealer after staining them would help.April 10, 2018 at 2:32 pm #57452

Alco, they have a few shops in northern Cali I think. It is 1″ OD non-polished.
bought all the printed parts from Jim Allen
Don’t tell me that…I am assuming he gave you the parts as the license they are released under… he can’t sell them.April 10, 2018 at 2:33 pm #57453
Caswell Sealer after staining them would help
They come with a sealer but I think I read it was just kerosene? After a few test runs I will take a picture to see how it looks.April 12, 2018 at 1:02 pm #57686
I love the tape measure trick. Your list just shows 3/8″ wire sleeve, did you just use the one size? Put the 1/2″ tape inside one and then slip that into the same size sleeve? Or did you use a slightly larger sleeve for the outer one?April 12, 2018 at 1:22 pm #57694April 12, 2018 at 1:27 pm #57696
So Ryan I have 20′ of braided cable cover I got from you, think that’s enough to do a 20″ x24″ build? I really like the tape idea… and your DOPE build!April 12, 2018 at 1:28 pm #57697
Have you thought about incorporating that into the MP3DP? How do you mount it to the parts?April 12, 2018 at 1:45 pm #57699
think that’s enough to do a 20″ x24″ build?
A few times over. I don’t use it in the tubes, that is where I fold and store the extra wire length.
Have you thought about incorporating that into the MP3DP? How do you mount it to the parts?
Well I have now! I just have it zip tied to the plastic or steppers. There does not seem to be much force because I keep them slightly pre-kinked.April 12, 2018 at 1:45 pm #57700April 12, 2018 at 1:48 pm #57701April 12, 2018 at 1:48 pm #57704
