Well, we have an operational MPCNC with a pretty large 2’x3’ cut area! The project took about two weeks from the start of printing parts. Many thanks to Vicous1 for these awesome plans. Instead of a router I dropped in a 500 watt spindle; so much quieter and for $135 on Amazon it seemed worth it. I also used a TB6560 control board and am running Mach3, so a slight departure from the Ramps set up. Speeds are pretty good and crisp.
There is always something new to do to improve a project and I’ll be moving on to an enclosure very soon. Then electronics box, lighting, cable chains… I hope to have a YouTube video up tomorrow of the machine as it runs now.
