    I made some changes to my MPCNC, found what was causing me issues after a winter hibernation (belts had become much looser on one side than the other), upped my voltage from 12V to 24V, and upped my max Z speed to ~30mm/s.

    In ~6-7 hours (6% stepover on 1/8″ inch ballnose bit) I turned this:

    Into this:

    Used a cheap 6mm bit (10 for $10) to rough, then a cheap 1/8″ ball nose (10 for $10) for finish pass.

    I used Vectric Aspire, but for just 3D models their Cut3D is cheaper. I made some money selling signs made out of Extira (and have been toying with making my own 16lb HDU – I bought the chemicals from USComposites, but was using it up too fast when I tried using it at 70 degrees. It says for best results to only use when outside temperature is 80+F since you have to have a lot of ventilation), so software/hardware becomes business expenses and easier to justify.

    I just went through the things made thread. Now I need to keep digging to find other stuff, and suggestions are welcome.

    Man that is awesome! Would love to be able to cut something like that once I get all setup.

    What is the size of this project? Hard to tell without something to scale it to. Still amazed by this and want to carve it once the machine is setup.
