I’ve been planning to build a MPCNC for a while now, but real life has been interrupting my plans so far.
I’ve been thinking about the build size and where I would put it in my (relatively) small workshop.
Basically, I have 2 options:
- either build an MPCNC with a small build size (think 300mm x 300mm)
- or build a larger MPCNC on a low table I can slide beneath my desk and take out when needed
Does anyone have experience with putting an MPCNC on a low table?
If my MPCNC has a Z-axis work height of 100mm, the height of the Z-axis will be 100mm + 190mm + 50mm (approx. length of the stepper motor) = 340mm
And if my desk is 750mm above the ground, the MPCNC table can have a height of 410mm max.
So would this be a feasible idea or not?
I can’t seem to find any major drawbacks (apart from having to work on your knees) but maybe I am missing something…
