What temperature and what type of filament? have you tried bringing the temperature up as that’s the most usual problem when the extruder jams. other than that you can check to see that the spring is putting enough pressure on the filament to keep it from grinding. then you’d check the stepper driver voltage and increase that if it’s still…[Read more]
Keep the MPCNC sales going, offer the simple bundle for anyone who wants to get into this one, and maybe the skate wheels. let the end user decide on the level of difficulty. if they want to go ful sheet, then they can part out the rest. no one is forcing you to sell everything, or grow bigger than you feel comfortable with. just take it one…[Read more]
Plus all that extra weight actually makes the pipe more prone to sagging not less. what you want is added stability not added weight. while stainless is slightly more heavy than zinc plated, dots extremely more rigid along its span. there’s always going to be a trade off.
I should reiterate that this chain will work with other parts that are already available. i did make my chain able to hold more stuff inside it, but it is still the same chain. i am currently using pcflyer’s parts for my mpcnc. the chain was designed mainly to speed up the process.

Working on the final designs for a version that has bltouch support. so far it works as a bltouch mount. haven’t had the time to try it out to see if it actually works as such. I’ve tested the fit with a generic and genuine bltouch classic. but I’m still waiting on some feedback as to the validity of the probe height in relation to the nozzle.…[Read more]
How about changing out the doors in your house to openings that fit your silhouette… lol
As far as being slightly warped, couldn’t you get by with using estlcams surface mapping? easy just lay a 4×8 sheet of tinfoil across the entire workpiece!
Dude my mpcnc prints so good I stopped using my printrbot because it’s too small. I just printed my buddy an mpcnc and while I was printing his parts I was printing my small parts for my next build. 4-8 Parts at once is a dream I made 1.5 mpcncs in just under 115 hours of printing
Fwiw you’re going to spend much more than you should if you go to HD or Lowes. try the pro lumber stores or mom and pop shops where you can pick your own lumber. i have a lumber yard that I go to who’s prices are almost 1/3rd the price of the big box stores. they really gouge you on lumber especially treated lumber. you’ll also have a better…[Read more]
When the crawlbot was in its earliest of stages, they were contemplating having the bot actually crawl across the sheet. what you would end up with is a machine that can use a 4×8 price of stock but only cut about 40-42″ to the inside of the sheet. they eventually scratched that idea and went with the belt driven design that works quite similar…[Read more]
what about pvc? like 3 or 4″? Then you could make the table whatever size you want with a 4 or 6″ piece of mdf running the total length on each rail so you could drop an entire slab in the middle and keep your z height low. trust me there’s a hundred reasons why a full sheet utilization would be nice, but still once you start cutting that big…[Read more]
I thought we were trying to stay cost effective here. i still don’t see the need for a full 2′ of extra space. if done right you should be able to put get by with <10″ oversize. I mean the current mpcnc really only loses about 6-8″. mdf can be acquired in 9×5 sheets and 10×5 if you really wanna go that big. and I get the allure of using a full…[Read more]
Mdf is the way to go here. doors are not that strong, and aren’t going to hold up to the abuse of routing. most of them are just luan over cardboard. metal will be too heavy and is definitely going to flex under its own weight over 10′. Which I don’t know why you need 10×5. Shouldn’t it be 9×5? mdf can be found in 9×5 or at least 9×4’1″…[Read more]
