Thumbs up! Newcomer myself, chiming in. Unfortunately away on vacation, and all I can think of is coming home and resuming the printing and picking up parts.
I don’t have a technical background at all, my studies since high school have been in the humanities, and I’m working with counseling. But - in my youth I dreamed of electronics and engineering, so the MPCNC is an old dream coming true!
Sucks when you get a missed step 90% into a print doing that, or one of the tall parts pops loose. Shit happens for any printer. I did the same though, only printed the XY parts by themselves, after losing both to a layer shift 80% into a print.
