I wouldn’t blink an eye at the $2000 price tag if I had it to spend. I think it’s one of the best inventions I’ve seen in a while, possibly ever.
To just walk up to a piece of material and almost instantly cut out a perfect square or circle of any size with no setup.
I literally dreamed about this machine the night I saw it.
That being said, no, it does not take the place of a CNC router. Completely different in my mind.
