    Hello

    I like the way MPCNC is built and I am in the process of finding the parts. I have a 3d printer myself (A reprap), but the tube I can buy has the following sizes:
    Tube size = OD
    3/8” = OD: 17,5mm
    1/2” = OD: 21,3mm
    3/4” = OD: 26,9mm
    1” = OD: 33,7mm
    1¼” = OD: 42,4mm
    1½” = OD: 48,3mm
    2” = OD: 60,3mm

    None of them comes close to to the part sizes on Thingiverse, Will there be another size of printed parts, like 26.9mm or 33.7mm ?
    Does it have to match exactly?

    How good (how small) is the smallest amount (mm) anyone has been able to make a MPCNC move repeatedly?

    Sorry for my English..

    Best regards
    Arnold

    Are you sure you are looking at conduit? The sizes that are available have covered the 3 size globally so far. If for some reason your conduit is different buy stainless tubing, or shop online.

    +/- .2mm is a good place to start.
