While it seems easy to convert your machine from the 500mm or 750mm size to the 1000mm X-Carve size, it can be expensive and will require a lot of time: you are essentially building a new machine. You should expect to put the same amount of time into upgrading your machine from 500mm or 750mm to 1000mm as you did into building your machine. If time is of the essence and you are able to spend a little more money, we suggest purchasing a new 1000mm X-Carve.
If your machine was purchased before October 2016, you'll also need to upgrade your machine's controller to the X-Controller.
