    Hey All, figured it was about time to share.  I kept telling myself when I ran into a snag, I would start my build thread and ask for help…  somehow everything went super smooth and seems like everything is working great.  I must have learned a lot more than I realized building the MPCNC 😛

    Anywho, here she is.  I still need to get the 611 (next check) and figure out a way to manage the y-axis cable but other than that, she’s working!

    I went pretty rogue with the electronics.  I used an rasberry pi, + the pi 7″ touch screen with CNC.js and an arduino uno + CNC shield with GRBL and wired the Z motors in series.  Works fine, the only hitch is if I idle the Z steppers at-all the z-axis falls down, so I had to configure grbl to never idle, and always have the steppers powered.  Hasn’t been an issue in my short tests, but I may have to add some cooling or something for longer cuts.

    Anyway, here it is!  let me know your thoughts!

    Nice! I can’t wait to see how you like the electronics. I have been itching to try something a little different myself.

     

    Sorry for the delay you got stuck in the spam filter for some reason.
