Same here - I thought I signed up for shapeoko update, carbide 3D updates and carbide create updates.

I really want to build a 48" long machine (cutting area), and I was hoping to do it by extending a Shapeoko 3. :(

Any word on if they're going to offer the new extrusion à la carte so we can extend the Y-axis, at least?

With all this talk of XL, XXL & wishes of XXXL, I'm feeling left out without a tall version.

Ballpark guesstimate the spoilboard surface on the XL will likely be around 42" X 24".

Using tiling this would be large enough for most of my requirements.

I would like to see a tall version offered in the future and a Z axis which would handle a spindle or router that can take an1/2" shank bit or endmill.

I began working up an Acme screw drive for the SO3’s Z-axis: http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/ ... Acme_screw

Just a parts list and some notes, but it seemed pretty straight-forward.

Did the email announcing these upgrades include any pricing details?

All I really want for Christmas :) is two longer rails. I don't need any other parts to expand my machine...

Hope they offer some a la carte options.
