  1. Hello,

    I was wondering if there is a list of which parts of the R-CNC can be used for the RS-CNC
    I have al the parts for the R-CNC, but haven`t started building it yet. I now wish to build the RS-CNC

  2. I am really interested in making one of these, Is it an easy thing to modify the length of X would ideally like a bed size of 1mtr x .75mtr i.e. 1 sheet of depron.

    1. Hi Steve,
      It’s easy to increase the size of the CNC, you just have to modify the lenght of the box screeds, square tubes, plate and the Y smooth rod (where are the pulleys)

  3. Hello! Congrats on the great design and most of all thanks for providing the documentation for free. I was gonna build an MPCNC but as soon as I saw this project on youtube I was sold.

    Two questions:

    1) In my country I can’t find the box screed required, so I’m wondering if I can use rectangular 100×30 box section (easily available) as a replacement. From what I gather it doesn’t bear much load, but I don’t really want to use wood because of warping. Do you thik the extra thickness would compromise, for example, the fitting of the Y rails?

    2) I’m also thinking about adding a small laser module, for low-power engraving tasks, perhaps in custom bracket on the side of the spindle. Any thoughts regarding this?

    Thanks in advance!

  4. This is a brilliant project and I’m half way through and it’s going well.
    Can you tell me what you coated the MDF table with? It looks good in your pics although I guess it has to be fairly hard wearing.

    Many thanks

  5. Bonjour, quelle est la taille maxi qu’on pourrait envisager sur cette CNC. Mes projets nécessitent que je puisse travailler des paneaux finis d’environ 180 sur 70, est envisageable de monter un châssis de 200×90 par exemple ?
    Merci !

  6. Bonsoir Romain et d’abord bravo pour ton formidable travail,
    j’ai chez moi une Anet A8 que je pensais transformer en graveuse laser, mais en voyant ta RS/CNC (que je vais faire 😉 ) je me suis dit que cela surement mieux intégrer à celle ci : plus grande, plus tout quoi … pense tu que cela est ce possible ? y as tu déjà pensé ?

    1. Bonjour Hervé,
      Oui il est bien sûr possible de monter une tête de gravure laser sur la RS-CNC, il y a même une pin prévue pour la commande PWM du laser sur le shield 😉

      1. Merci pour ta réponse Romain, et tant mieux que le pin soit déjà prévu… il n’ y a plus qu’a rassembler le matériel petit à petit 😉

  7. Hello from across the pound,

    After a 4 month long investigation into MP-CNC I believe that the RS-CNC just might be what I’m looking for. I was wondering if any other modification concerning the Hardware and software could be envisioned to boost the speed of the RS-CNC.

    Best regrads

  8. Hello,

    I was going to ask you,

    You used wood in the video. But the material I want to use is cast iron. What is the performance of the cast iron processing on this device?

    1. Hi eA,
      If you need iron milling, you have to get a professional CNC milling machine who is build with massive metal. RS-CNC can mill wood, carbon, aluminium but not iron.

    1. Bonjour Xavier,
      Je ne vends pas la machine complête, juste la carte de contrôle.
      Pour avoir les pièces il y a deux solutions, un vendeur sur Aliexpress propose le kit, ou acheter les pièces une par une avec les liens de la liste des pièces du tutoriel.
      Bonne journée

  9. Ciao, complimenti per il progetto. Stavo anch’io progettando in una CNC ma quando ho visto la RS-CNC ho deciso di realizzarla. Sono appassionato di modellismo e spesso mi trovo a dover lavorare pezzi abbastanza lunghi. Dovrei quindi ingrandire la stampante anche nell’asse Z. Per fare le modifiche che ho pensato sarebbe veramente utile se potessi avete, oltre alle singole parti di Solidworks, anche il complessivo assemblato. Mi è possibile per favore scaricarlo?
    In seguito posterò le modifiche mettendole a disposizione ed alla vostra valutazione.
    Grazie in anticipo

    1. Bonjour Claudio,
      Des membres du forum ont réalisé des assemblages solidworks, vous devriez le demander sur le forum 😉
      Bonne journée

  10. Hi Romaker: I’m realizing the RS CNC but I ha e two problems.
    1- I forgot to pass the cables for z top probe: is it possible to avoid it using the zmin probe and saing to the firmware (please explain me) ztop is zminus + tot mm?
    2- the touch screen doesn’t work so well. I’ve to touch the yellow flat behind it so it works again. What is happened?

    1. Hi Emanuele,
      It’s higly recommended to mount the physical Z endstop ! But you can put a jumper on Z pins on the board instead the enstop.
      If the touchscreen doesn’t work so well, try to calibrate again the touch pad (see the pdf manual or the forum)

  11. Bonjour
    Est il possible de commander chez vous la carte mère avec tous les accessoires (écran + esp-32 développement + le reste …….)
    si oui a quel prix ?
    bien a vous

    1. Bonjour Alain,
      Si c’était possible, ce serait en boutique, mais je n’ai pas d’écrans ni ESP32 en stock.
      Je ne vends que la carte GRBL 32bits V2.0 que je fabrique.
      Bonne journée

  12. Salut,

    tu devrais mettre des gros panneaux bien visibles sur tout le site disant: “Je ne vend pas le kit complet, juste ce qui est listé dans le shop, veuillez vous référer à cette entrée de la FAQ pour plus d’informations” 😉
