I just had a questing about recomended build size for first time CNC build. This is my first CNC build, but I have built several 3d printers, and other things like race quads.
I am looking to do wood routing, probably drag knife, and ocasional aluminum or G10 cnc. It seems like using the 24" foot print would only give me about ~13.5" of working space. Will I run out of space for wood CNC and vinyl quickly, or do people see to find it nice workable size.
I will be using 3/4" EMT conduit, I am already ~50hours into printing. How is the regidity if I move up to a 24" or even 18" working space? Is their a stainless steel upgrade for (23.5mm OD) 3/4" conduit readily available in the states, or would I need to reprint some?
It would be nice if I can get a tight enough tollerance for press fitting things made out of MDF or G10.
