Re: X-Carve Videos On Youtube - Same for Shapeoko 3?

The best advertising for a business is word of mouth. And Youtube takes word of mouth to a global audience. So, when Inventables sent out a lot of machines to people with channels, some of whom live outside the US, I think they did a good thing for their business. And they likely couldn't have purch...

Re: Shapeoko 3 tolerance

Yes, the Nomad is to be upgraded to a “Pro” model, due to a mis-order of too-large parts. The Pro version takes advantage of said parts, and has some modifications to make assembly easier, and to reduce parts count, taking advantage of 5-axis machining. Thread on it on their forums. I'll have to ch...

Re: Shapeoko 3 - Expansion Packs

I sure hope that they bridge these information gaps soon. You bring up a very good point. Managing information is so important. When I look at Glowforge or X-Carve, the amount of information is almost astounding. I think finding ways to encourage higher traffic through a site is important, along wi...

Re: 40W Laser Cutter/Engraver for $2000

The Glowforge caught my eye today. Thanks Shapeoko Forum! I actually first saw the Glowforge video a few days ago as an ad, I think, but cut it off short because I wasn't in the market for a laser. You know! It's like seeing that cool (insert favorite and very high priced sports car here) but not re...

Re: Shapeoko 3 tolerance

I'm waiting for my Nomad 883. I'm mainly going to use the shapeoko for roughing and Nomad for finishing. Just curious of the tolerance on my S3. :D I would be interested to know more about your experience with fine tuning your Shapeoko 3, if you go that route; for example, if you were to upgrade yo...

Re: X-Carve Videos On Youtube - Same for Shapeoko 3?

Gadgetman! - in the videos where the machine was received for free in exchange for an honest review, the Youtuber makes it clear. Inventables asked the various channel owners to provide an honest review. The machines were sent entirely free, including shipping, in advance of any review. It appears t...

X-Carve Videos On Youtube - Same for Shapeoko 3?

I keep seeing more and more X-Carve videos on Youtube, where Inventables gave a full X-Carve CNC machine in exchange for an honest video review by the recipient. This strategy by Inventables seems to be working. I search for Shapeoko 3 videos and get a few hits of mostly uninteresting footage, excep...

Re: Shapeoko 3 - Expansion Packs

Great info - thanks for sharing. If shipping ends up being several hundred dollars I hope picking the kit up is an option - most likely the 5hr trip will be worth the savings. I wonder if carbide will offer a buy back/trade in for the standard rails & frame. Once I have the longer rails I will have...
