It is no secret that, since the launch of Snapmaker 2.0, most support for the Original Snapmaker was all but abandoned, in favour of the company leveraging their new platform.
Any future addons for the Original Snapmaker planned for development were also cancelled, as the technology has continued to evolve. The company does not even offer a Trade-In program, to support a discount towards upgrading to a Snapmaker 2.0 machine.
As such, this has placed a large percentage of Original Snapmaker owners with few choices:
Sell a machine no longer supported beyond replacement parts on somewhere like eBay, hoping to possibly afford a Snapmaker 2.0 A250 later (which may suffer the same fate, once Artisan is out for a while).
Keep using it, with the knowledge it will never expand beyond its existing ecosystem.
Try to afford equipment from another, compeitor manufacturer, much of which can be the same (if not more) expensive than a Snapmaker 2.0.
This is, therefore, a petition to the Snapmaker Team to release all schematics for the Original Snapmaker open-source, including plans for the abandoned modules. This would thereby enable experienced companies like E3D to develop new modules for the platform, and users on Thingiverse to create mods to help improve their experience for a machine they already have.
