Ok, I understand that extra GF variants means extra development, manufacturing hassle, SKU’s, software development, etc, however, I still think there is merit for two additional versions…
- All the features of the PRO (better laser, optics, cooling, etc), but without the Pass-through slot.
- Benefits: Ability to be used in schools and for public demonstrations (as Class I laser).
- Cost: PRO minus $200?
- All the features of the BASIC, but with the Pass-through slot (and software changes).
- Benefits: Ability to cut large pieces of material, but without the cost of other extra PRO features if on a budget, expecting low usage, etc.
- Cost: BASIC plus $200?
I think that people upgrading from a BASIC to a PRO SAFE would offset those downgrading from a PRO to BASIC PLUS.
