This seems like a nice community. I am going to buy a MPCNC as a family present for Christmas (meaning it’s really for me, but I’ll let my two teenagers help me). We not sure what we’ll make with it. I expect we’ll mill foam and wood - probably never metal. We might also like to get a printer head - though that is not what we would design for. After reading a bunch here, I’m going to make my purchase list. I’d appreciate feedback. Planning on 24x24x4 inch setup.
bundle (I’ll start with the Rambo Series version. In case I want to try printing or dual endstops later)
3/4 in US Conduit Printed Parts (23.5mm) with DW660 mount
10’ 3/4 in EMT for Orange or Blue big box store
vinegar 000 / 00 steel wool to remove galvanizing
I thought I should get the LCD, but the notes say driving it from the laptop is easier? So I guess I go that way.
Extruder mount? I saw in some post you expected more Extruders this week? I wonder if I should wait on my order (and take advantage of my free shipping?) Any guess as to when they will be available? Or maybe the milling is enough to start with?
I have scrap for a table. I was surprised by some of the lightweight tables. I would have thought they would be massive (like you would make for a lathe) so they wouldn’t vibrate. Is that not an issue?
Cheap measuring tape to destroy
two sizes of the wiring sleeve (looks like there is only one here - so next size up as well from Amazon?)
Looks like I could try printing without the heated bed? Didn’t see much on it, but I didn’t read the MP3DP section.
What did I miss?
