Any update from the guys who have gotten their mpcnc working with plasma? I am contemplating building out a second machine dedicated only to plasma cutting. I ordered a Lotos ct520d TIG/Arc/Plasma combo, and now I’m thinking I will have to try to add CNC to it. It is a High frequency start, hopefully there is a work around for that and the electronics.

Any other machine modifications that have been needed? I was wondering if belt covers would be needed, and possibly a shield above the torch to deflect sparks away from the whole middle assembly?

Thinking I will wait to start printing up the parts until the newest middle section is posted up. These machines are just a blast with how many directions you can take them.
