Correct, we’re aware of the date the preorders would start, I was inquiring about what time and timezone it would start in addition to if there would be options of selecting no router or router included for the Shapeoko Pro.
I imagine them selling out in minutes, so want to have a heads-up
Ah, right, sorry, I read that too fast. Definitely contact sales then for a definitive answer
The quick change is the expensive toy on your Christmas list there
But as for the rest, the bulk manufactured spindles with ER20 are 2.2kW but that doesn’t mean you have to be able to drive all that current. As I understand it, when the VFD runs out of delivery current capacity that presents a torque limit for the motor and it effectively stalls away from the drive RPM causing the VFD to detect and try to recover. One would imagine that with a reasonable order volume somebody like HuanYang or Delta would be able to provide a 110V input drive with a firmware configured current limit for the machine. We know that drives with step-up input stages to drive 220V three phase off 110V input are already in volume manufacturing.
The other option would be to see what order volume is required for G Penny or similar to fit an ER20 collet onto the 1.5kW 110V motor.
Neither of these things make sense for an individual, but for a vendor…
That and running a 220V line, or at least sourcing a 220V extension cord from the laundry room to where the Shapeoko Pro will get set up.
The AMB (Kress) 1050 FME-U DI alternative uses ER-16 collets and is available in a 110V version according to the manual. It shouldn’t draw more than 11A, so you shouldn’t need a separate circuit for it (if you can find one) or a 230V step-up transformer.
Unlike the standard types, apparently there’s no info on runout for either type.
OOPs Damen CNC says the Mafell’s “Concentricity of <0,10mm at a distance of 25mm”. Mafell claims to be 6 dBA quieter than the Kress (10 dB quieter would seem half as loud).
I have the FME 1050 normal version and whilst it’s a perfectly OK plunge router / spindle, the dentist drill noise drove me insane. A couple more months of that noise and I’d have been caretaking the Overlook hotel for the winter.
What did you want to know?
@Luke See my quoted earlier reply above.
I believe PDT and I think we will have a no router option like we do for the shapeoko.
I ran a 220 line from my mains panel, disconnected the dryer outlet and ran from there. Easy since the panel is on the outside wall of the garage. Maybe not so much in your case.
We just got a first pass at the page posted to: https://shop.carbide3d.com/collections/machines/products/shapeoko-pro-cnc-router?variant=32912259186749
We’re expecting to turn on orders at 10am PST. (But anything could come up before then)
Awesome! Sure is a great looking machine
Any photos without the MDF installed? We have something really great planned
Sorry, we don’t have any pics of that yet.
Obviously, not for sale just yet, just providing the link.
@robgrz Will these two holes in all four plates (front and rear) be on the final production machines? I already have something neat planned for these holes, so I hope they’re still there If so, do you know the diameter and center to center distance between the holes?
I’ll bite. What’s the idea?
