is there any difference between these two machines besides the size???
Pros and cons
I read that the X axis rod can sag or bent when in the middle of a job. If this is true is there an upgraded rail to eliminate this issue.
I want to get the 1000mm so if there is no difference besides the size that would be great.
Where’d you read that? The new single piece X axis shouldn’t sag.
Size is the only difference I believe. With the updated makerslide I believe any “sag” or flex has been elimanted. I own the 1000mm version with the newer X axis and have never had any problems.
when you say new X axis you are refering to having the 2015 version and upgrading to the 2017 ??
Sorry dont know anything about these machines yet
I bought mine at the end of 2016 with the upgraded x controller and the bigger x axis gantry. All the x carves come with this now.
I didn’t do any upgrades, it came that way.
perfect thanks for your help
Get the largest size that you have room for.
Going to that detail, the 750 mm uses 1/2” MDF spoilboard where the 1000 mm uses 3/4” MDF.
Is the waste board and the spoil board the same thing?
Are there other places to buy the x carve or just on inventables??
The Xcarve is an Inventables product. They are the source.
If you are in the UK you can buy them from a company called RoboSavvy (sp?). A distributor.
