We’re building a MPCNC! You can find the parts I used listed below, as well as the build videos and livestreams. As the build goes on, this page will get updated!
For the project I printed the official parts from V1 Engineering, but I’ve since learned that there are substitute community versions available that make metric hardware much more usable. After having built with the official parts, I can highly recommend not using them and printing the modified versions instead. (August 2019)
If you don’t have access to a 3D printer, you can also order the parts through V1 Engineering or services like 3D Hubs. But it’s more fun to print them yourself!

Screws and fasteners (list at V1 engineering) are available through sources like Amazon, but I’ve found it’s much easier to find a specialized store that carries everything in a consistent quality.
