Carbide 3D is the small, self-funded company which made the Nomad 883 which was launched on Kickstarter May 2014. Since then, Edward Ford (designer of the Shapeoko has joined them as a partner), and they added the Shapeoko 3, XL and XXL to their product lineup. The original Nomad has been replaced by the Nomad 883 Pro.

This page is intended to be a sitemap of their site, so as to have one master reference.
