Re: Adding tool change

I'm not sure if the GRBL developers read this forum... but I guess not. It sounds like a option for tool change to me, but I'm a CNC noob... I think you want to post this to another group/forum/mailing list.

Good question, I would like to have an answer too. I remember Edward Ford offered two kits at one point, one with threads (I think for $20 more) and one without?

Re: Inventables is accepting pre-orders ORD Bot Hadron 3D pr

As far as I know BD did sell the first 100 kits for $350... and I think you get 4 stepper motors as well. I think it is a OK price. I guess the biggest issue with the ShapeO...
