Patrick here, this forum has already been helpful with this build. Thanks.
I finally have a little bit to show, but I guess some background would be good. I have a small carpentry shop with focus on wooden boats. I also do carpentry in people’s houses, built-ins, cabinets, railings, etc. I’ve wanted a cnc machine for a few years now. I decided to see if I could learn some cad/cam first and have been successful modeling a few things. Because of that my wife got me a 3d printer for Father’s day. It’s a Voxelab Aquila. I printed some of the things I designed and also started looking at the mpcnc. I actually looked at a few other printed designs but the community and success rate here made the decision for me.
Anyway, most of it is printed now and my stainless tube arrived the other day. I took it to my shop and cut it to length. I used my metal bandsaw and that went quick. I picked up the stainless from one of my suppliers Fisheries Supply in Seattle. It’s 1" polished…065 wall.
The prints are all hatchbox pla. 55% infill, .26 layer height.
The work area will be 20 x 18 x 3. Thanks for looking
