Does anyone have or does Carbide 3d provide a Carbide Create file to cut new hybrid table slats that exactly match the ones that ship with the Shapeoko Pro 5 4x4? Preferably with all the holes, counter sunk holes, layers and tool paths already in the file.
Also can we purchase exact replacement slats from Carbide 3D or other third party seller?
However, I must ask the obvious. Why is there not a finished, complete, tested file with all tool paths and layers already provided by Carbide with which a 4x4 owner can cut their own slats? Design the file to be cut in 2ft sections so it would fit evenly and square to cut on the 5 Pro 4x4 and then assemble together to fit 4x4.
You sent a link to slats for a 4x2 from CutRocket and said that file could be adapted. Why hasn’t Carbide “adapted” this file for 4x4 users? Why put the burden on the user?
Why not provide the file that you guys use to produce the slats for the 4x4 machines you sell? At least then we would have the option of having cut on a larger machine somewhere else.
Having owned 5 CNCs from X-Carve and Openbuilds, I will say the Shapeoko Pro 5 is a vastly superior machine. Why fall short then on such an obvious need for your users?
Not providing these slats or a finished ready to go Carbide Create file is really a huge miss for Carbide 3d.
I think here the need is always different, or at least I’ve found it to be that way. Some users may only need one slat made at a time, or 3, or they need a custom stock size because big box store sells MDF in x size or MDF sheet was cut to a certain dimension to fit in someone’s vehicle. Or they want a specific thickness. Or in a specific material.
