Wisconsin Lowrider V2 Modifications

Used as many parts from the Lowrider V2 as I could and it only uses 4 nema 17’s. Getting ready to test. Video of crown test. https://www.facebook.com/groups/MPCNC/permalink/2413918222037706/

Nice design! Does the Z axis run on wheels too? Let us know how it works.

I will

This thing works great. https://www.facebook.com/groups/MPCNC/permalink/2421971387899056/

I’m crying for your basement. You’re going to be finding dust on things for years after that! Looks pretty cool otherwise, I’d suggest moving the router mount lower on the z so it sticks down more. I ran my tubes into a carving on my mpcnc because they stick down too far.

Ahhhh! Freaking facebook videos. Always at 100%. I’m awake now! Looks good.

Jeff that thing looks awesome. I like the idea of the c beam. It would be cheaper for me to use the c beam instead of 2 ss tubes. Does it seem to add more in rigidity? Curious if this could support my 2 1/4 hp router. If it could then I could save 100 bucks not buying a dewalt.


Also, do you have any design plans for this? I’d be interested in using this sort of design.

Thanks, I’ve been really busy, when get a chance I will be putting together a parts list. It works very well and it eliminates the z problems I was having. I will post as soon as I can. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10214746720725772&id=1357334796

Sounds great! Keep up the good work! Looking forward to this! The videos look like it’s running well too.

I’m new to Lowrider2 and intended to start printing out the parts this week.

But now that I’ve seen this design, which makes a lot of sense to me - I’m unsure on which parts I need to print out of the Lowrider 2 list - and which parts need to be added to recreate this design. Also I’m wondering whether the belt drive as developed by BraunsCNC

could be effective here. Also - what are the dimensions of the aluminium beam and where is it able to be bought from.


thanks in advance.

Jeff that is based off the MPCNC not the Lowrider. From the looks it you would need to print everything but the legs


There is a thread here about Leon’s double belt mod: https://www.v1engineering.com/forum/topic/mpcnc-with-double-belt-setup/

He ended up removing the double-belt modification earlier this month:

As you may have noticed, I removed the double belt. It worked ok for some time, but then the glued belt started to curl up at some places. Additionally, as I have already mentioned in a previous post, it’s not really easy to tension the belt. Too little tension -> loose belt. Too much tension -> the angle iron will be pushed down and the two belts don’t engage each other anymore.
There is also a thread I just started about adapting the concept to the LR2 Y-axis without needing to add an extra structural piece (just some additions/tweaks to the idlers) https://www.v1engineering.com/forum/topic/double-belt-for-lr2/

Hi Mike. OK, I re-read what I wrote to you. I see where the mix-up is because it was worded clumsily. . I know that the unit shown in the video is an MPCNC. I was referring to the double belt drive mechanism only and wondered how difficult it would be to incorporate into Jeff Lister’s design.

Frosty - thanks for those links. Interesting. I guess there would be problems over time with the belt stretching - if not the bottom one so much then definitely the top. I’d already been thinking that the double belt system is really a form of rack and pinion so I wonder if anyone has added an acetal or metal rack and pinion drive to an MPCNC build yet. I don’t think that there’d be a weight issue and of course never any stretching problems. And price is not prohibitive:
