I don’t have a lot of issues with the ShopBot except that it’s more tedious on job execution. Having to change the mills between operations is a PITA and the speed is not nearly as fast as the laser. Calculating speeds & feeds is tedious but if conservative can be stored in the library and reused pretty easily (but then that means I sacrifice potential speed improvements ). VCarve is pretty solid and insulates me from needing to worry about the G-code.
Overall though, more projects for lasers than for CNC in my current world
