MPCNC Primo Parts

Printed Parts Sizes

There are 3 different sets of printed parts C-23.5mm, F-25mm, or J-25.4mm (1 inch). The measurement is for the Outside Diameter of the conduit/rails/tubing. Please measure your rails before printing! 23.5mm fits ¾″ EMT conduit in the US. Anywhere else you must physically measure first. Some things are sold as Inside Dimension (ID) (conduit), or Outside Dimension (OD) (tubing).

Hardware store steel EMT conduit works well and is inexpensive; an upgrade would be .065” (max is 0.120”) wall thickness stainless steel tubing or DOM. Stainless steel tubing is more rigid and smooth, but also much more expensive, Dom is less expensive than Stainless but requires some coating to prevent rust.

Recomendations

Recommended Print Settings: PLA for dimensional accuracy (PETG is also acceptable, if your dimensions are verified good and you are willing to sacrifice some rigidity). Two or more perimeters for through hole strength. There are some steep walls so no more than 75% layer height to nozzle diameter. No support should be needed for any part I have designed.

A tool mount is also needed for your specific tool. A list of mounts I have designed are below. You can also find user designed mounts on PrusaPrinters and Thingiverse by searching “MPCNC Primo” and your tool name.

Color is the default color scheme I use to print the kits. Color A is one color of filament, and B is the second color of filament.

Note

The core can be printed with varible infill to save time and plastic. 70%/30%/70% split at 24mm and 116mm.

Total weight in PLA is approximately 2.2kg.

Print times have varied from 65hrs (0.5mm nozzle @38mm/s), to 120hrs (0.4mm @60+mm/s), and 160hrs (0.4mm nozzle @35mm/s).


Hardware

The kits in the V1 Shop contain all of the following hardware. Currently it is not available separately.

Hardware Alternative QTY
5/16x1.5” M8x40mm 46
5/16 locknut M8 locknut 46
M5x30mm 65
M5 locknut 65
M3x10mm 24
M2.5x12mm #3x½“ 10

This version uses both sizes of hardware equally well. No issues with metric bolts what so ever.

Note

Bolts need to be hex head, screws pan head. If you choose to use cap head you will need washers and perhaps a little extra length.


Components

The kits in the V1 Shop contain all of the following components. Some of these are affiliate links, you can buy from these links or just use them for information.

Note

I try to keep the Amazon links up to date, but they can sometimes change products without changing the item number. So be careful when looking at these links to compare against the offerings in the shop. If you’re not sure, drop a question in the forums.

Caution

Do not use Steel reinforced belts, they will fail 100% of the time. Fiber reinforced only.


Spindle Options

Currently I have made mounts for the preferred Dewalt 660, Makita RT701c. Others options would be the 55mm spindle (57mm caps), the least attractive option is the 52mm spindle.

More to come.


Tool Mounts

You are able to use tool mounts originally designed for the Burly MPCNC, you just need to use the Burly tool mount and nut traps.

  • Blank tool mount, HERE, to design your own.

Note

The blank tool mount needs details.
