Re: V1 Engineering's Piper

Found a problem with the MPCNC Design. Bearing 1.jpg You can see in the middle assembly, that the 5/16 bolt head and the Bearing are touching, This will have to have thinner Bolt Head. Will be Grinding about 1/2 the thickness of the bolt head away to allow the bearing to freely spin... Bearing 2.jpg

Mainly on this forum we deal with 3D Printing. I am building a MPCNC from V1 Engineering Kits Available. I plan to use it for 3D Printing larger Parts, I will be using it as a CNC simply because it has that ability. There is a lot to watch on YouTube on this new MPCNC I like the ability to etch my o...

Re: My Tevo Tornado is going Crazy

My question is, can you mess up a 3D printing by manually moving the Z axis? No: If this was the case I would never be able to print. I manually move the XY axis to pre-level the hot-bed. Then do an Auto Bed Leveling. How can I reset factory setting. I send a " M502 : Factory Defaults " Then a " M5...

Re: V1 Engineering's Piper

No it was simple. Other than someone else making up the kit, it is all on you to determine what you what and make or order all the parts accordingly. I live in Washington State the conduit sold here is 3/4 or .75inch, selected the 23.5mm STL's and 3D Printed all the plastic parts in ABS. In my case ...

Re: V1 Engineering's Piper

Today started to Assemble the MPCNC, I do not believe any of the measurements of the Hardware match the hardware purchased. Will have to take the parts assembly to the Hardware store then match what is needed. The measurements are wrong or the Store has all hardware in the wrong parts bins, or they ...

Re: V1 Engineering's Piper

Thank you.

Have been searching everywhere to try to get the least expensive Hardware, It's crazy.

I have a E-Bay seller getting me a quote on a list, But it may look like Mcmaster Carr may get the bid.
