I’m Arthur from France. I recently build my beautiful Xcarve but living outside US is such a pain!
So I thinking to open an european store and I need your help for that!
First of all buying the machine from Inventables is impossible due to taxes so I choose the lonely european reseller Robosavvy.
You need to wait more than 1 month before shipping because it’s a preorder. I wait 3 more weeks due to their supplying (without counting some days for shipping). It was a bad user experience when you just waiting to carve.
Days after assembly my beauty, I need more carving bits. Problem, we don’t have the same units! (imperial/metric).
I wanted high-quality bits (CMT carbide) but it’s 8mm, not 1/4"…
I ordered some bits from Italy and router collet from United States (ElaireCorp), and I wait, wait again…
