Carpet cleaning? What does that have to do with an MPCNC build? I thought I would share the short story of how I ended up here since I don’t come from the CNC world and had never heard of an MPCNC nor witnessed a 3D printer in action until about a week ago.
The Obvious Pathway From Getting Your Carpets Cleaned -> MPCNC (Step By Step)
- In late summer I was too cheap to replace my office carpet so I thought I would get it cleaned. As such, I had to empty my office of a bunch of mismatched furniture.
- Once the room was empty, I thought to myself. I see a lot of people building their own rustic furniture. May I should do that?
- I then discovered the Kreg Pocket Hole Jig and a variety of barn-wood staining techniques. I made a bunch of stuff for friends, family, and me.
- I was then was lucky enough to win this year's match play series at my local golf club. They don't give you a trophy so I thought I would make myself a coffee table with something engraved in it.
- I found it hard to get something done at a reasonable price, but stumbled across someone who did.
- I asked him what he used, he said "Just Google MPCNC, and btw 3D printers are cheap now".
- I did just that...and "presto"...I started my MPCNC build.
I am just printing parts now. I figured I better get that done before order the kit from V1. Things going well so far (tons of Googling of course).
I think I still need new carpet
