    I am finishing up my second MPCNC build and this time around taking cues from the MOMUS CNC enclosure to have a fully enclosed self contained machine.

    The frame is built from 3/4″ MDF with a torsion table base, weighs a ton but is also completely ridged.

    That looks great. I really like that, and most of the dust will stay away from the electronics too.

    Good choice, that should work well. I think it would be an awesome idea to make sure you can hang material out of either open end in case you do bigger things. like a sliding or removable door at each end. I tend to mostly do material that hangs off the table.

    That is the plan, there will be a removable back plate and I’ll just leave the cover open if needed to stick out the front. The cut area is around 22″ x 16″ with the longer side oriented for allowing cut tiling.

    For the dust I am going to add a fan grill and a cut out furnace filter in front of the PCU and electronics.

    I did some cuts for a friend and he bought a really nice piece of wood and wanted the same thing cut along it at 1′ spacing. So I just slid it through 1′ at a time, front to back. I guess it all depends on your end use, Just a thought.

    Added a spoil board, I bought this router bit from ebay and routed a t-track channel every 3″ in 3/4″ sanded plywood. It is nailed down to the printer bed with a few small nails which I’ll pry off when it needs changing eventually.

    I wanted t-track but real t-track was cost prohibitive, this works well and was quite cheap.

    Clean build, I like it.
    Your table is neat. Just not a big fan of this weird yellow color XD
