The PrintNC is a high performance, DIY CNC router. It's based on a steel frame to ensure rigidity and uses 3D printed parts to make assembly easy.
The PrintNC project is in active development and community participation is highly encouraged! You can live chat on the PrintNC Discord or head to r/printnc and ask there. Answers are fast and the community is quickly growing!

Understand that this is a rapidly-evolving project. This wiki is the most current source of documentation. Documentation from github and and elsewhere is obsolete. Dozens of people have built a PrintNC - not hundreds or thousands. PrintNC relies on 3D printed parts printed specifically for the tubing you obtain locally.
Read the FAQ and browse this wiki. Please note that like everything else in this project, it's a work-in-progress.
Check out the Notion gallery which highlights current build logs in addition to completed machines.
