If you can tighten a bolt, you can assemble Shapeoko. The closest you'll come to fabricating during the assembly process is tapping the rails. Outside of that, the entire assembly process involves screws, washers, and nuts. Easy. Peasy.
We tried getting the best working area vs footprint ration possible. The new Shapeoko 2 will consume 500mm x 500mm of desk space. The working envelope of that area is roughly 300mm x 300mm!
Shapeoko 2 utilizes GT2 belting to drive both the X and Y axis. These belts give you great repeatability, wicked accuracy (.1mm), and a quiet ride. Add to that the belts are so easy to assemble a child could do it. And trust us, they have.
What good is a machine if you dont' have the software or knowledge to use it? We've tried solving this problem by providing a well documented Open Source toolchain for everyone to start with.
