SHAPEOKO Specific laser on Kickstarter

Post by HPGreyling » Mon Jan 05, 2015 3:33 pm

Has anybody subscribed to this kickstarter project?

It seems like a great idea. especially as you get the hardware and software in one package and.. it is made for specific use on the Shapeoko!!

The hardware and firmware will be open sourced once the Campaign is funded. The software will not be.

How do I get the Winston treatment? I have a micro MASSIVE youtube channel and absolutely no experience working with lasers....

The software is being offered separately on the Kickstarter for $95
The software also supports doing CNC work but this is not its strongest point.
Once the Kickstarter is over I plan to retail at 149.99.

I don't plan on sending any more Demos until the kickstarter funds.

I see that this is specific to the ShapeOko 2.

Do you know if this will be readily adaptable to the new ShapeOko 3, or is that an unknown area at this time?

thanks

Hi K,
I have been working with Edward and he has assured me that the necessary mounting holes will be present. I am also looking to get an early release of the SO3 as soon as they are ready. Hopefully, I will have a chance to post video before the Kickstarter ends.
