Ok, long work weekend. Here's a few pics...
The external case : Fit and finish is spectacular
The interior feels cramped for those of us used to the 1000mm XC :
The right side, under the control panel, is literally empty except for the power supply, and the control board. I'm thinking both will be moving soon. Extending the X carriage into this space is a common upgrade.
I purchased an upgraded head and lens, so I can add air-assist to the cutting, as well as a small air pump.
Pump was $59, nozzle was $22 and lens was $30. So, I'm plus another $100 to the base price right out of the gate.
I hope to have the nozzle, pump and lens this week.
Also ordered a drop-in replacement control board which will allow me to use GRBL instead of their proprietary configuration for controlling the laser with CorelDraw. Another $100.
I'll post more as time allows.
