Curious about thoughts on the upcoming new X-Carve CNC’s from Inventables??

I currently use an x-carve at a makerspace and would love to have my own machine, simply for fun and hobby. Seems most CNC’s are quite expensive but what the heck, you only live once.

I do like the software X-carve uses which would be my primary reason for considering this machine. Legacy also looks good.

Your thoughts appreciated. Thank you.

Seems VERY overpriced for what you get. Compare to Avid which several YouTube woodworkers use.

Have you taken a look at the Shapeoko Pr it comes in at $2800 and is a very nice machine. I have the Shapeoko 3 XXL which is also a nice machine. Their customer service is fantastic and the owners are on all the different groups answering questions.

Carbide 3D has their own software and it’s free and is not cloud based which is nice.

Anyone start off with really entry level cnc units, like the Vevor 3018s? The size is not and issue as we would be doing small items. Apparently, Easel software works well with them. What, if any experience has anyone had with these units?
