    This may have been answered, and I apologize if it has… but when determining the size I wanted to build my first MPCNC I decided the 24×24 size would be perfect.  However, I then was curious, is this work area size, or overall size of the machine?

    Thanks!

    Let me know if that doesn’t clear it up

    Just don’t be an idiot like me. Worked out the size I wanted, figured out the length of the conduit, and didn’t buy enough. In just the wrong way. 31.25″ rails and X-Y Axis. Got a 10′ and a 5′ section. 3 rails out of the 10′, 1 out of the 5′, the Z rails and feet out of the remainder… Got everything cut, started thinking about how it’s all going to go together… D’oh! I guess I’m not going to have a square build after all (since I can’t foresee ever needing 4’9″ of 3/4″ EMT for anything else).

    edit: and the killer is that if I’d just gotten 2 10′ lengths…
