Late last week i put in my order for the mpcnc kit. I bought the electronics kit as well as the printed parts. Ill be using 1" stainless tube and a import 500w spindle. I went with the MPCNC for the same reason im sure a lot of other people have. I love that its a great router/milling machine but can be used for all of the other various tasks on a as needed basis. I am completely new to the diy CNC world. I am not new to computers and im not new to design and fabrication.I have done a lot of machine work on manual mills and lathes. The cnc side is something i have wanted to dive into for a long time. My question is pertaining to the process of swapping the mpcnc over to a 3d printer when i need to. I am seeing all of the mods and cool things for the mpcnc on thingverse that can be printed. I also need a mount for my import spindle, why not get a 3d print head and print the mount first thing? The problem is, i know very little about a 3d printer. I realize that there is an extruder and a hot end, and there is spools of plastic material. I get that a hot bed is nice to have to keep the part nice and use various plastics. I guess i really just need clarification on how i get from a to z with the 3d printer swap over on the MPCNC. Do i need to do something with the firmware, or since the extruder/hotend is sold here is it ready to simply bolt on and plug in? I can obviously buy the extruder and mount from here. This sentence confuses me a bit in the description of the extruder "Firmware edits will be needed to adjust the E steps, thermistor type to #5, and care needs to be taken to set your extruder driver correctly." I see some information about drivers and wiring the extruder/hot end, but again its not super clear to me. Is there anyone that wouldn't mind to take the time to write up a step by step procedure from start to finish on how to swap the MPCNC over to a 3d printer? It would really be greatly appreciated, and im sure it would help other people new to this that come along. I assume like most things, after you get all of the information you need and apply it, its really no big deal. I'm excited about this machine and can't wait to run some parts. Please help!
