I officially decided to build this back in Jan, but had a set back with some minor printer surgery. However, fast forward to today I got this working. This is the most advanced thing I’ve built to date. I had a sense I could do it (or wouldn’t have started) but wasn’t sure I’d actually get all the way through the build with a fully functional CNC machine.
I still need to calibrate my endstops, do some actual cutting, wire management todo, figure out a work holding system, but wanted to share my excitement of having it officially up and running.
The forum’s been a huge help. Thanks to everyone who contributed to this wealth of knowledge.
Great idea about saving the crown! I’ll stick it up in my garage too.
My 13yo is kinda, sorta, a tiny bit showing interest in digital fabrication. The MPCNC has captured his attention way more than my 3D printer. He helped me setup for the crown test print and is asking if he can pick what we draw next.
