Able to get a used Shapeoko 3 for 550.00. Its a 2015 model with 22"x22" working area so different than the models I see now. The guy knows nothing about it cause he set it up but can’t figure out how to use it and thats all the info I get. Looks like brand new in the pic. My wife has two different vinyl cutters and I know this is totally different. Don’t know if this model is 3d or not, we know nothing about cnc but make a lot of signs by hand. At the moment Im only interested in 2d where it just routes a sign off a silhouette like a vinyl cutter but don’t know if programs have gotten that easy yet.
Is this machine for me to get my feet wet or should I stear clear cause of the learning curve and unknown if he set it up right?
They said they paid 800.00 for it 3 yrs ago so I don’t know if they were cheaper then or not as well made.
