    Hey all, new to the forum, I’ve got a snap maker with 125mm^3 working area.  Will I have enough space to print all the 3-D printed parts for the MPCNC?

    Essentially I’m asking what is the size of the largest part.

    “Minimum printer size required to print the MPCNC parts- X&Y –  (XYZ turned) 135mmx135mm, min. Z– (toolmount) 120mm min. You can add these parts to your slicer and verify if it works with your own printer.”

    You might check your local library. All the libraries around the Denver area have LulzBot Taz printers with large print volumes that they let people use.

    Has anyone tried splitting the large parts? I’ve been printing it on a 125 x 125 monoprice select mini, and I’m almost done printing everything that I can fit. I’m thinking of splitting the bigger ones and pining/gluing them back together but it’d be nice to know if someone else has tried it!

    The big part is what keeps everything square.  Not sure what will happen if you cut it, then glue the two parts back together.

    PROBLEM SOLVED!!!

    I eventually found this thread: https://www.v1engineering.com/forum/topic/one-part-too-big-for-my-printer/

    The short version is that you can split the one part and super glue it together; it should hold long enough to make a new part with the MPCNC. Jo Lallo was even nice enough to upload a split version of the XYZ part!

    I’m happy to print the big parts in PLA+ for the cost of material and shipping.

    Let me know if you’re interested.

    The FAQ says “X&Y –  (XYZ turned) 135mmx135mm, min. Z– (toolmount) 120mm min”

    I make my XYZ_F_Burly part 160mm across so I think this answer maybe wrong/outdated.

    The turned part means, turned 45°. Then it fits on a 135×135.

    I hadn’t considered that, ingenious.

    In my defence I have a delta machine so never had much luck turning things around on my circular build plate.

    Oh…shoot.
