We wanted to let the community know that on Friday, Maker Made is launching our new version of the Maslow, called M2. This project is a result of everything we’ve learned over the last year-plus from the forums, customers, and our own dev and research, and we’re so excited to finally launch. Release party is Facebook Live, Friday at 5pm EST, which you can find here: https://www.facebook.com/events/551639809097741/?active_tab=about
The goal for M2 is pretty simple- take the Maslow and a) make it easier to setup, calibrate, and use, b) increase accuracy at the limits, and c) keep the cost reasonable (especially next to the standard tabletop CNC options). By doing this, we’re hoping to offer a new version of Maslow that’s more accessible to average people who don’t have the expertise that this group has.
Key new features will include- aluminum extrusion z-axis, GRBL-based DUE control board, wall mounts for simplified frame design, spring solution for chain slack, 3-pk of router bits, and free shipping. These upgrades will also reduce the lumber / router expenses by up to $150.
For existing Maslow owners, we’re also releasing a backwards-compatible upgrade kit so no one would need to purchase a full M2 if they want to use the new features.
