    I built a MPCNC plasma cutter. It went together really well and if I did run into a problem the forums had a solution. I built it for a class in school for genius hour.

    Here is a video of it running.

    Thank you for designing the CNC.

    Dude, High five!

    You need to give us some details, super stoked to see this and I have been itching to build one myself.

    I want to set up my MPCNC to run a 2D pattern from a sketch I would draw. Doll house parts. Can any one suggest a simple drawing program, a program to create the g code, and how to use repetier to run my MPCNC. How do I disconnect the temperature requirements for the extruded? How do I change the code to control the router off and
    on? Do I reload this to the Arduino? Will the 3D aspects of the software make it difficult?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    @Rand, check out the vicious1 tutorials. If that’s​ not enough info, maybe make a topic of your own.

    Start Cut
    M106 (Close relay on D9)
