I’ve been considering the XXL for a while now, and the last time I was on the site looking at the options there was a customization process where you could decide what you did and didn’t want with your kit (tools, waste board etc). I can’t seem to find that area any more.
Did they do away with the options?
I’m afraid that that has never been an option — while they’ve slightly increased, there are only a couple of options offered by Carbide 3D:
- SO3/XL/XXL (full kit only, Sparkfun offers (offered?) a mechanical-only or deluxe opensource kit in red)
- (SO3 only) aluminum threaded table (add-on — you’re stuck with the original MDF, cut it up for projects or use as a spoilboard)
I believe the Inventables had that sort of thing as an option back when they were selling the Shapeoko.
Oh Holy Hell! I was thinking of the X-Carve (another machine I’ve been pondering).
Thanks! While I may be embarrassed at least I’m not going crazy.
