Hello,

It has been one very busy day, I am sorry the Monday Update is coming late.  

The Monday Update is the official point for information on the progress of the RigidBot.  We also have an instagram page that you can follow our day to day progress - http://instagram.com/rigidbot.  We will post all important information and updates via the Monday Update, if there is a significant update we will post that update on the kickstarter page right away.

Here is a quote from one of the beta testers

"You've created an amazing printer. Nice work! :-)"

We now have 1300 kits on the water!  300 in the first batch and an additional two containers that left about a week later. I will let everyone know when they arrive to port and when they are cleared from customs.  The remaining 900 kits should be kitted this week and on the water by next Monday.

Devin is awesome, he helps manage the RigidBot production.

We have now officially assembled 125 RigidBots and it has taken us around 1.5 hours per machine.  Due to the missing cables we have set up production to the point right before the machines are wired, I expect it will take us about 30 minutes to wire and calibrate the machine.  We have already tested the calibration process and will have an official calibration run in the upcoming days.  See the short video of the calibration print.  We are printing directly onto the aluminum.

Packaging for the assembled printers have been tested and work well.  

We discovered that the manufacture did not drill/tap an important hole in the middle of the build plate for the RigidBot Big.  We discovered the error before any of the remaining parts were shipped out of China which is great.  We are in the process of reworking the 100 RigidBot Big build plates and they will be ready for assembly by the middle of this week.  

Instruction Manual 

I have included a link to the instruction manual.  On each page of assembly we will provide a link to the instruction video that relates to that portion of the manual.  We would love help translating it into the following languages: Spanish, German, Russian  and French.  Anyone who would like to help us please email Kae at - ks_support@inventapart.com.

Here are few more prints from the RigidBot

Answers to Questions

Technical and Production:

1. Have you received the final approval of CE Certification?  Yes, we have received verbal approval for both of the kits, the LCD, RigidBot Main Board and both heated build plates.  We have not received approval yet for the assembled machines, however are expecting to hear this week.

2. Will your calibrations methods be shared so that those that didn't get assembled RigidBots may repeat your methods? Absolutely, we want every RigidBot to work great.  Also, if anyone finds a new technique or trick we would love for you to share that with the rest of us.

 3. Has the manual been finalized? Can you share it with us? Yes, see above.

 4. Has the manual been translated to those languages where the respective countries require a local language manual for importing (e. g. EU - Germany)? If not, do you still need help from the backer community with these translations? (Which languages?)  See above

Manufacturing:

1. Have you received the cardboard and Styrofoam for the assembled printers?  Yes, (see above)

Delivery to Backers:

1. Could you share with us what shipping companies you have chosen to use for various countries? We will use a combination of different carriers and have not made final decisions for every country.  If there is a better carrier in your country we would love to know.  Please email kae if you know of the best carrier to use.  (ks_support@inventapart.com)  If you post it in the comments section it can quickly get overlooked.

 2. Is there, or will there be, a way to alter our order, in case we want to add the dual extruder, or more filament, or just to give Invent-A-Part more of our money? At this point it is a little tricky to add additional items to your order as we are almost shipping.  We have ordered certain quantities based off of the finalized pledges.  We have however order additional items of most parts in anticipation of unfinalized pledges / future sales.  We would love to offer additional opportunities for purchase, however we would hate for that to cause additional delays.  So if you are interested in adding additional items, we could unlock your account if we have enough of that item ordered.  It will of course be first come first serve.  Contact Kae and she will arrange for your account to be unlocked.  ks_support@inventapart.com

3. It has been quite a while since we finalized orders. Will there be way to change shipping address prior to shipping for those who may have moved?  That is a great concern... We will look into this and report back by next monday update.

 4. Will there be notification when our orders are in queue prior to printing shipping label, in case of last minute address change? We will look into this and report back by next monday update.

Other:

1. As beta testers post pictures of their test prints online, could you pass along that we’d like to know the software and settings used (resolution, material, temperature, speed, time to print, etc)? We’d also enjoy reviews or lengthier videos from the beta testers. At least one has a Replicator 2, so a comparison would be nice. I totally agree!  I will get some reviews from the beta testers as well as try to get them to send all of the print settings.  I typically get an email with just pictures so I will ask again if they can inform us on the print settings.

 2. In a prior update, you mentioned revamping the website to enhance customer experience. Is that happening now, or after bulk of shipping? We have started the process, however we are still focusing our time on getting the RigidBot out the door.  It is a ton of work :-).  What features would most be valued to make the new website better?  I know some people have CAD files they would like to share with everyone, perhaps a place online?  We would love to build the most user friendly site for everyone.    

 3. Will Invent A Part stock replacement parts for the RigidBot? We’re hoping for basic parts for wear or damage, plus upgrade parts.  Yes we will.  We have ordered extras of all parts in anticipation of this, and most we already have in stock.  This includes bearings, belts, motors, wiring, thermistors, heater cartridge, head parts, all of the plastics, RigidBoard, heated build plates, screws, springs, etc.

 4. Will you guys offer an alternative payment method for the orders at invent-a-part (including modifying current RigidBot orders)? (Many cannot or will not use PayPal.)  We currently accept all major credit cards and can take them over the phone.  What other payment methods would be preferred?

5. Is inventapart at risk due to the recent heartbleed issues?  As far as we know we are not, however we take your personal information very seriously.  For the past few weeks we have contracted an IT company to help secure our networks.  To operate our system we have 3 dedicated servers.  We have recently upgraded our services to backup everyday as well as upgraded our firewalls and email services.  We continue to work with this group to protect your information.  As a company policy we do not store your credit card or paypal information on our servers.  

Again I am sorry it is so late today, so please forgive me if there are typos.

Thank you for all of your support and we can wait for the shipping containers to arrive!!!!!!

Hello,

It has been a busy and productive week!  I finally received pictures from the kitting factory of the first 300 units.  The first 300 (200 regular and 100 Big) are on the water and as soon as they arrive into customs I will let everyone know.

Kitting the RigidBot

The factory has confirmed that 1000 additional units have been kitted and should get through Chinese customs around Wednesday or Friday.  

Missing Cables Arrive

The 300 missing cables finally arrived.  They have an additional 300 cables en route to cover the 300 machines that are on the water now.

Questions Answered

Technical and Production:

1. Is there a 12V pin available from the RAMPS board? How about a 5V pin? There is not a 12v pin, we regulate from 24v to 5v.  There are lots of 5v pins on the various connectors.  The limit switch connector is a good option.

 2. Are the motors and the fans also rated at 24V or 12V?  The motors and the fans are all designed to run on a 24v system.

 3. How many mA will the USB Socket provide at 5V? (In case we want to hook up a small hard drive.)  300mA 

 4. Did you get any help with the CE certification?  We have received verbal confirmation and should receive paperwork this week !!!! :-)

Manufacturing:

1. Has the cable maker shaped up yet?

Yes, we received 300 cables today (these will cover the 300 machines that are here in Springville now)  The additional 300 should arrive in the next day or two.

Delivery to Backers:

1. What is the mix of the kitted printer on the water? Will it be the 200/100 as previous, or all small kits? It is 200 regular and 100 big in the container now.  

 2. Why only 300 in this container? Is it because of the labor involved in adding cables to so many kits once they arrive?  I wish I had an exact answer, the factory has not given me any explanation for this...  However we know that 1000 kits are going on the water on Wednesday.

Other:

1. How about PayPal preorders; when will they get accounts to finalize their orders?  

If you are a paypal preorder contact Kae at ks_support@inventapart.com with the subject paypal online account - we will get you set-up into the system.

Thank you everyone for your support, we will keep you updated with all of the progress.  We are planning another production run to assemble 50 RigidBot Bigs on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Hello,

We have started the process of assembling printers!  It has been a great experience and it is a lot of fun to see the RigidBot come together.  Remember you can see more frequent pictures on our instagram page http://instagram.com/rigidbot follow us @rigidbot

There is also a great Google Plus Group (Organized by Backers and RigidBot Fans)

https://plus.google.com/communities/117996416225488251038

Manufacturing / Kitting 

As many of you know we have not received the pesky cables from the cable company.  I have not received a good explanation from the factory, however they say it has something to do with importing them into China.  The company I am working with is based in China however the cables are manufactured in Taiwan.  According to the factory the cables are finished and en route to the kitting facility.  They did not arrive before the Thursday deadline for kitting so we kitted 300 units that are now in route to the USA.  (last update they are in Chinese customs for export and should be on the water by Wednesday).  We are air shipping 600 cables to the USA that will accommodate the 300 units that are already here and the 300 additional units on the water.

The kitting went really well and I should receive pictures from the factory soon.  We will keep everyone updated on the progress. 

I know there is some frustration that we are focusing our time on the assembled printers, however I assure you we are doing everything we can to get the kits out as soon as possible.  We plan on kitting the remaining printers in two batches.  One batch of 1000 and another of 900.  

So 300 have already arrived (Most will be assembled)  -  300 kits are on the water - an additional 1000 will be kitted (scheduled for next Monday) and the final 900 (Scheduled for a little later that week April 11th).

This is our current shipping plan (it may change but it is our plan at the moment).

Obviously the 300 Kits that are on the water now are being shipped to the USA.  We can only fit 750 machines into a container so we are likely to ship 750 to USA and the remaining 250 will be reserved for international backers, to be shipped directly from China to their final destination.  (the only thing that will change this is if we don't have CE certification by the time of shipping)  We don't want to ship to a country where they will be denied by customs because no CE certification.  We are pressing as hard as we can to get this finalized as FAST as possible.  

We have a lot of pictures!  So I hope you all enjoy them.

Assembly of RigidBot 

We built the RigidBot in several different manufacturing cells. This allows us to control the quality of the assembly as well as minimize space and time. Most of our tables are on wheels so we can easily move that assembly station to where it needs to be.

Overall we have had no problems with assembly.  One important note is the z-rod on the z axis motor needs to be cleaned.  It comes a little dirty from the factory, so to get good movement on the zrod it is good to clean it.

Questions Answered:

Technical and Production:

1. Can you provide more details on the power supply? We know it's 24v but what amps 15a or 20a? 

The power supply is 24v and 17a and is external and plugs into the back of the RigidBot.

 2. What is the status on the first batch of assembled printers?

See above 

 3. Any update on CE certification?

Not yet, I check back with them once a week.  

Manufacturing:

1. Cable update? Who knew a simple cable would cause so many problems!!!! They are going to air ship 600 cables to us and the remaining cables will be sent to our kitting factory.

 2. Has the packaging for the assembled RigidBots been corrected/finalized?

Yes, we have shipped around a RigidBot with the standard corners seen in last update and it shipped great.  So we are planning on using the larger ones just for a little extra protection.  The box has been ordered and only has a two week lead time.

Delivery to Backers:

1. Can you tell us what group of orders the first 300 assembled RigidBots are going to? 

By my math, the 200/100 you received should cover all regular assembled backers (145), and almost all of the Big assembled backers (114). 

Yes that is about right, we have already distributed some of the 200 small to beta testers as well as when we have the local build party, we will use some of these printers to distribute to those backers.  

2. Can you tell us what group of orders the first 300 kits are going to? 300 will barely make a dent in the number of backer kit orders (1201/388), not to mention “extra RigidBot” add-ons and pre-orders, but it’s a start.  

The first 300 kits will be shipped to the backers in the order of pledge level.  We will finish delivering the $299 level first, then move to the next level etc.  There is a chance that some international backers will receive their kits before domestic backers as they will be shipped directly from China.  There are only 200 RigidBot Regulars and 100 RigidBot Bigs being shipped so it isn't a huge dent, however the next round should be right behind this one.  

 3. Any estimate on when the first assembled printers will ship? We know it's not concrete, but it would be nice to know what stands in the way of the first printers heading out.

We are waiting for the cables as well as getting more feedback from our beta testers.  We are close to shipping, and are estimating the first assembled printers should go out sometime next week.

 4. Some are worried about the declared package value on shipments. Though the RigidBot price has gone up since the KickStarter project, will KickStarter backer shipments be listed at the pledge-level amount, or the current retail amount? 

The package will be declared at the price of the pledge level, not at the current price of the Rigidbot.  The value the backer paid is the value of the package.  This is one reason we seriously entertained importing the machines into the country and having the build party.  We could declare a lower value on all printers coming in and have only one customs interaction. Invent-A-Part would pay all of the import fees then distribute the fees to the backers.  Overall it was less for all international backers however poised some problems so we have not pursued this option, and was very frustrating to many backers.

 5. For international shipments, what will the company name on the invoice be? This can be important to link the Amazon payment invoice to the shipment.

We will have the company name as Invent-A-Part, and the item declaration will be hobby kit

Other:

1. Do you still have plans for Google hangout build?  Yes, when works best for everyone?  We will probably look to having something next week??

 2. Are any special tools required, other than the allen wrench (/hex key/inbus) on the BOM?

We include 3 allen wrenches in each kit, used for the 3 different sized allen bolts.  Most use the large 2.5mm hex.  

Additional tools that would be nice for assembly: small phillips screw driver to adjust the current pots on the RigidBoard.  This is used to adjust how much current is sent to the stepper motors and is used to calibrate the RigidBot.  While assembling the RigidBot it can be useful to have a mallet to set the metal bars in the plastic, however it is not hard to do by hand.  Razor knife to cut blue tape or similar tape on the build plate.  

We are so excited for the RigidBot and look forward to shipping your printer as soon as we can.  Please send any questions or concerns to ks_support@inventapart.com. 

Thanks

Michael and Team

Hello Everyone,

It has been a very exciting week.  The first five printers deliverd last week have been beta testers. They have been assigned to assemble the kit based off of our Instruction manual and start printing.  They are starting to complete their kits and print parts.  Two of the five beta testers have the dual extruder option and one has started to print parts in two colors.  Way cool!

For a less formal - more often update on the RigidBot - please follow us on instagram @rigidbot

Here is a video of the RigidBot printing with dual extruder.  We will continue to post more videos  of the Rigidbot in action.

Questions and Answers:

Technical and Production: 

 1. Some who are new to 3D printing (aren’t we all, really?) would like to know what slicer and host software you use on the RigidBots at Invent-A-Part. I seem to recall at the beginning that you were using Slic3r and Repetier Host; any change?

We have used a lot of different programs to test the RigidBot.  We originally starting using Slic3r in connection with pronterface.  It is a great open source software, however recently we have been using Cura.  The Cura software is very easy to use to generate gcode and you can easily manipulate your part by rotating and scaling.  We then import the gcode into pronterface to actually interface and use the printer. 

Could you share some recommended settings sometime prior to shipping? 

Yes of course we will!  The most common settings are the print speed (75mm/s) however we will provide a recommended settings for the RigidBot and RigidBot Big.  Also after we ship RigidBots we would love feedback from everyone if they find even better settings.

2. An astute backer just pointed out that the RigidBot extruder has no object cooling fan (i.e. a fan to cool PLA as it is printed). I see that the extruder breakout board has a “Fan2” connector (J4). Is “Fan2” PWM-controlled so that we could add an object cooling fan? 

Yes, that is exactly what the Fan2 connector is for.  It is PWM-controlled through the slicer settings and can be completely controlled by the software.  

3. Some, including myself, are interested in printing with nylon. Can you tell us what, specifically, the "polymer sleeve" is made from (PEEK, PTFE, other?) in order to determine the max temperature for the hot end? 

The polymer sleeve is currently made from PTFE.  We recommend not exceeding 250 degrees celsius for this extruder design.

 Manufacturing: 

 1. Has the packaging for the assembled printers been finalized/shipped to you? You had written that it was still in the works some time ago. 

We are almost done with the assembled printer packaging.  We have decided to use styrofoam corners placed on the bottom and top of the RigidBot. These corners utilize the solid frame design of the RigidBot and protect the printer very well.  The packaging company sent the corners however we feel they are too small.  (See attached picture)  We have ordered larger corners however it has changed the size of the box, so we have ordered new boxes to accommodate the larger corners. 

Smaller Corners
Smaller Corners

We have not shipped the kits yet….  We keep getting pushed back from the cable company, so the kitting factory doesn't want to kit until they receive the missing cables.  It is very annoying!!!!!!!  We have rescheduled for Thursday and hope to receive those missing parts.  If not we are going to kit and air ship the cables so we can get the printers on the water.  

 Delivery to Backers: 

 1. Have you decided about sending an email with tracking numbers once an assembled printer leaves Invent-A-Part? 

Yes we will provide the tracking number of your shipment :-)  (Some areas may not have a tracking number, however most will).  We will email the tracking number as well as post it on the online tracking system.   

Other:

 1. Any work on the online store? We’re hoping to have access to parts and accessories after this madness is all over and, quite frankly, your current online order system is not well designed. 

You are completely correct on our online store… it sucks!  We will build an easy to use online store once things slow down a little.  We have focused all of our time and energy on RigidBot manufacturing, however once the shipment of kits is on the water we will be able to focus more time on the website and store.  We will offer all of the parts on our online store including, bearings, belts, motors, plastics, metal bar upgrades, heated build plates, dual extruders, RigidBoard, cables, extra tips, our awesome thermistor, head kits, and so much more. 

2. Some of the international backers are planning build parties, but lack the advertising reach to contact backers who have not joined our G+ community. Would you be willing to list these initiatives and contact info for the organizers in your Monday update(s)? 

No problem, we can also post them on the Invent-A-Part website.  Contact Kae ks_support@inventapart.com with any announcements.

3. Is there a chance to get some technical details, such as smooth rod diameter and structural tubing size? 

Yes, we designed the RigidBot to be easy to modify (hack).  The smooth rods are 8mm in diameter and use lm8uu bearings.  The structural steel tubing is a standard .75inch / 19mm bar stock.  It is available at any HomeDepot or hardware store in steel or aluminum.  

Thank you for all of your support!

Michael and Team.
