I think I have enough stuff to start my build. I still have to finish printing the XZ and X parts, and I need to cut the largest XZ frame and table.
The parts all printed great, the hole sizes all look to be right on. I haven’t fired up my MPCNC for a bit, so I had a few setbacks. My Raspberry Pi that runs it wouldn’t boot, so I needed to make up a new SD card. I had a wire connection break on the Y steppers. Good thing I was just doing a dry run.
I found my 24"x24" MPCNC (old version) is about 1 inch short for cutting out the XZ frame. I’m thinking I could squeak out another inch my sliding out the conduit, but that would be a lot of work. I’m thinking I will just cut out the center, then finish the outside on the jig saw. The inside cut is more important to getting a tight fit.
For the panels I am using a 1/4" Handy Panel. It has a finish on both sides, one side wood, one side black. I need to pay attention to the side I cut so I can make the wood side out, or black side out. I think it helped to build everything in 3D first so I have a good understanding of how it all goes together. I will attach a picture of the 3D model I made.
I just want to put in a good word for the excellent service Ryan provides. I put in my Vicious order and Amazon order on the same day. My package from Vicious came 3 days before the Amazon package!
