So here is my progress on my MP3DPv2! My friend gave me his broken anet a8 (which is the printer I currently have). The board was dead, and the bed thermistor was burned out. My plan is to use as much of that printer as I can in the MP3DP. I know I could have tried to resize some stuff to make it better fit, but I am going to see how far I can get before I need to change stuff up.
Old Anet A8 dissembled.
After printing most the parts (im still having problems with the x carriage) I had to wait a couple of days to get a nice 1/8 inch router bit, but its great. It is a carbide spiral upcut bit from whiteside. It was expensive but cuts great. I fired up the MPCNC and of course had to proceed to mess up on the first part I cut. I did the optional base plate first just in case I had problems. Can you guess which side I will have down?
Finished cutting the frame, this time without incident.
And here is assembly so far. I need to finish a good print on the x carriage and then Ill see if if I need to cut any rods, or if I can make them all work. Oh, how I love baltic birch plywood. It even comes in handy 5 by 5 sheets that I can actually manage myself.
