Well I’m fairly new to this forum and without Shapeoko. For that reason I’ve been more of a lurker.
I’ve been looking at various CNC routers for quite awhile now and am leaning toward the Shapeoko vs other brands. BUT, from what I’m seeing is that many people aren’t satisfied with the V-rollers, belts, Z-axis, and router.
My question is:
Are there plans to offer a Shapeoko 4 or 3+ or SuperDuper version sometime soon? It would include Water Cooled Spindle, Linear Rails, Heavy Duty Z axis ( possibly more z-travel ), integrated homing/end-of travel proxes, helical rack drive ( x,y ), optional Tool Changer, etc…
As I’m getting to ready to write a check, I would hate to purchase the 3xxl only to find out that in 2 months later the SuperDuper version is ready to be released. I would rather have an OEM kit with components that are designed and integrated into one package.
