For a new build we’re considering to create a bit more mobile version, by not mounting it on a full table. Having just the upper part would make it much easier to transport in the back of a car, for example. I know the entire machine can be unmounted from a table quite easily, but then you’ll have to screw it to something else and ensure it’s squared, etc…
So we’ve got the idea to build a square frame which holds the feet of the MPCNC. A bit similar to https://www.v1engineering.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/20180717_091933.jpg (found on https://www.v1engineering.com/forum/topic/a-texas-rebuild/ ), but then larger and perhaps have a steel frame welded instead, for added rigidity.
Besides being able to easily move the machine, we were thinking an added benefit might be the possibility to clamp the frame to a large surface (like a large table or a door) and engrave directly on it, through the “hole” in the frame. This way, you’d be able to work with objects that normally wouldn’t fit between the MPCNC feet.
What are your ideas on this? Any advice is much appreciated, thanks!
