First and foremost, I’m delighted that you’re inspired by what we’ve built and honored that you’d consider it worth your time to explore what we’ve engineered. If you’re reading this, you can probably appreciate in a different way than most the love and energy we’ve poured into building this product for you.
That said, I want to share a few notes of caution, with an eye towards avoiding an unpleasant surprise.
First, each unit is factory calibrated for many tiny variations in assembly, like the precise amount various assemblies are tightened, twisted, or torqued. A unit that’s dis-assembled and re-assembled may (or may not) show a host of problems, small or large, immediately or much later: out of focus, image alignment errors, etc. Even if a machine has been properly re-assembled, it’s possible that the calibration may no longer be correct. There’s no way to re-calibrate these without the factory fixtures and factory software.
Second, should a machine that had been disassembled or modified be shipped to us for warranty service, we would have to charge for repairs and shipment since this activity voids the warranty. I say that not to finger-wag, but to avoid the unpleasant surprise that could occur if someone took their machine apart, discovered a problem, and sent it back. I’d hate for them to only then discover too late that they had to pay to have it repaired.
Finally, I would be remiss (and scolded by my friendly neighborhood lawyers) if I did not point out that you could seriously injure and/or kill yourself or others by disassembling it, by modifying it, or by operating it after it is re-assembled should it be re-assembled in a manner that created a hazard.
