How to Prepare for Shapeoko’s Arrival

If you’re new to CNC like me, this is a question you’ve probably asked yourself a million times after hitting the confirm order button…aside from when it’s shipping of course…how the heck do I prepare for the Shapeoko?

Fortunately there are a ton of great  folks over at the Shapeoko forums that take the time to share their knowledge and make it easier for others like me to enter this whole new world.

I’m putting this post together to help me organize thoughts and tasks surrounding the arrival, assembly and use of my Shapeoko 3. I also hope that this post serves to guide others who may be looking for some information on getting started with the Shapeoko 3.
