Hey all, A build thread was requested for my MPCNC Build so I’m throwing one together!
The MPCNC is the Mostly Printed CNC by V1 Engineering (https://www.v1engineering.com/) that you guessed it, most of the parts are 3d printed. In my journey to press my own decks, the one step that I’m still held up by is the lack of access to a big enough CNC machine to cut my molds out on (and possibly the decks from blanks). I started shopping around and couldn’t find an “off the shelf” one for less that $2k at the time. So I started thinking to myself, hey self, this is all about DIY right? Maybe there is a diy kit I can grab to build my own to the specs I need? After a few days/weeks/months of searching I came across and decided on the MPCNC.
It’s a pretty simple build, just a lot of time and thought that needs to go into it. I’m going to use this thread to document my build and hopefully answer anyone questions along the way.
Warning: I’m a slow builder….I work way too many hours during the day and sometimes night, have 2 dogs and a wife, and way too many other hobbies I’m in, so this isn’t going to be a week long build. It may take me a while to get through all of it but I will finish it up and track my progress here, as well as post a lot of pictures, show any and all of my screw ups, give up, question my life choices, burn everything to the ground, and then hopefully finally finish my CNC.
So buckle the F up and get ready for a slow ride to getting my CNC up and running.
