Does anyone know the approx total cost of parts to convert a 5 into a 6?

I'd be in for a full conversion kit. Any chance of an announcement at CES? ;-)

Arse! I just noticed the dates on all these posts and then just stopping in June. Does that mean everyone was serviced offline and this ship has sailed? Honestly, I love my 5 when it works, but I need an easier life for work.

They still have some of the hardware, but I do not know if there are any cables/wiring available. Best to contact them and see what IT Works3D has.
I will express my CRAZY ideas at any time! So you have been warned. None of my opinions are Lulzbots and can be wrong at any second.

Given the investment made in the system and that we are still to get a reliable build out of the thing over 1 year on, it's a shame to hear that we can't find an upgrade path to a more user-friendly system. Wandering over to the Sands now. Let's see what the folks on the stand have to say. Right now this thing is just gathering dust in the corner of the office. Kind of cruel to tease us with the possibility though :-(
