Have a look at this forum thread for an idea to use our Y axis motion as a simple 4th axis, no additional stepper motor required. Pretty ingenious idea!

There are some cool modifications to Bob’s idea further down the thread.

Bob’s Super Simple 4th Axis

I can’t wait until someone adapts this idea to work on our MPCNC. I’ve been mulling around a few ideas but don’t have a prototype yet.
