Printers Shipped this week!

20 likes

Quick update:

As you all know we received 500 printers this week. After organizing, going through and QCing every printer, and getting the process down, we were able to ship 89 Printers this week!

Next week we should be able to ship over 100 printers now that we have the process down, the stations set up, and things are moving. 

The other big batch of printers is being shipped soon as well!

Thank you for everyone who has been patient. I know it has been a while but your printers will be arriving soon. RoBo On!

-Team RoBo 3D.

      I'm assuming the backer list isn't ordered according to when you pledged. I'm backer 84 (-ish, I suspect I miscounted somewhere but it's close to there) and have yet to receive any notice, yet Jahangir is at 229 and has it.
      On the other hand, I missed the April unassembled kits but did pledge near the start for a May unassembled kit. There's approximately 125 assembled kits that could have pledged after me but paid extra for their April slot. Until some June backers start posting I'm not worried, just anxious. Assuming they held to their 100 last week, and another 100 this week, May should definitely be done by next.

      Received my print on Monday, 28th. Everything in order, pretty much plug-and-play. (took some time to calibrate it, though).
      I'm extremely happy with the printer, thanks Team Robo3d for the great job!

      Received my printer, timing belt loose, power supply bad we think, waiting on tech support

      So just did what Xepol said bellow... very crudely worked out when copied in to excel and making sure that the 1st 1000 cells had a person to every 7 (if you copy paste you will see why) took that as the average as 142.85 then worked out i was in cell 3782 etc... im backer number 542.85 however this is flawed because I have no idea what rewards anyone above or bellow me went for... so its basically all irrelevant i also added up all the people in the rewards above e and worked out im somewhere around the 400th in theory... any one else going mad waiting?

      count your way through the backers list & hope.

      How can you see what number of the backer you are?

    9. Creator Jahangir Naina on October 21, 2013

      I'm backer #229. Received mine on the 18th, in Singapore. Took some time to calibrate the printer (pro tip - DO NOT HIT THE HOME BUTTON ON THE MANUAL CONTROL ON REPETIER-HOST). Have been printing up a storm! Thanks Robo3D Team!

      Mine should arrive tomorrow. I'm very excited. I received my filament on Thursday and my family has been bugging me on what it's for. Hope it works great right away. I'm sure I will have no issues. Great job guys!!

      April backer here - thrilled to have received my printer! I know the wait is agonizing, but on the other hand, it made unpacking the printer today that much more exciting. The printer only comes with a small amount of material; not that I'm complaining at this price, but you might want to consider ordering more for when you receive your printer. I have a feeling I'm going to go through this stuff pretty quick after I set it up tonight.

      And thanks, Robo 3D gents!

      Great news, I am looking forward to using this printer for a few gifts I have planned. Seems as though things are smoothing out a bit for your team, much deserved.

    13. Creator Xepol (deleted) on October 19, 2013

      Not quite the 30 a day you were hoping for, but keep pushing foward. I want my printer!

      Heck, I would provide an Fedex account # to ship it overnight once its ready if you are shipping that way at all because leaving it up to the postal system (or UPS ground for that matter) is painfully slow.

      Good to hear, and when you say it'll be shipped soon, do you mean before the end of the month, or another month or two?
