  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

    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)
      Cheers

  2. 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!

  3. 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

  4. 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 !

  5. 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 ?
    Cordialement
    Lionel

    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 😉
