Sorry for the long post.
I’m going to be building an MPCNC from parts I will purchase here. I will be using a spindle (noise issue).
At first I’ll be using it to cut plywood for clocks and kinetic art pieces. Probably nothing thicker than 1/2 to 3/4".
Before I begin the build I have several things to work out. First of which is where it will go. I plan on building a fold up table for the garage (I have a design). Could someone tell me, needing a 3 in Z height, how high in total is the Z axis from the finished (waste) table. I just need to know so I can have the table the correct distance from the wall to tip up.
I was originally looking for a 24x24 work surface but reading some posts I’ll probably start with a 24x24 total outside dimensions and then eventually make it larger. I’ll size the table for the larger size.
I’m going to have to run some electric and lighting before I begin also. It doesn’t look like this should pull a lot of power, I only have 1 15 amp circuit to work off of. Should I be worried?
I’m not too worried about the build itself (I follow directions well) and have been playing around with some software (Estlecam, Inscape etc).I would like to run the Gcode off an SD card. Any recommendations?
If there’s any builders in Florida who would give a tour of their setup, I’m willing to travel to see.
Thanks in advance.
