RoBo 3D Printers update!

Hi RoBo 3Ders, First off, I want to say thank you again for all those who have been patient with us. We know and understand that there have been very long delays in shipping RoBo 3D printer to you all. We are already through over half of the Kickstarter orders, about 511 to be exact. We still have a couple hundred units in house to send out as well as another 300 on the way to San Diego. We have been sending out about 20 printers a day on average.  

**For those backers in Australia, we are doing a bulk shipment of units to you via our shipping carrier and distributing locally within the next 10 days. Reason being is that shipping is extremely expensive there and Kickstarter only allowed us to charge one amount international. Therefore we have teamed up with an Australian fulfillment center to distribute them locally.    

**Just as well, Japanese orders will be sent from our manufacturer overseas in bulk shipments and they are being boxed up currently so stay tuned for your tracking numbers as well. Orders are going out every day. Check your inboxes and stay tuned. We cannot tell you exactly when your order will go out so please refrain from asking us. We are moving down the list and shipping orders according to estimated deliveries and order numbers. More are going out every day than ever before and the pace is constant.  

On another note, We appreciate all who have been active on the forums and helping answer questions in regards to technical issues. You have all been extremely helpful and we thank you! Our team is going to be taking active approaches to helping anyone out with any printer issues on the forums as well.  

2 quick notes:  

1) We just partnered with Repetier Host and will upload a version of Repetier with our ideal settings preloaded for all Window Users. Mac users, unfortunately Repetier said we cannot upload the version on the ios, so we will release all of the latest settings updates for you to implement.  

2) We found an easy solution for calibrating the Z. If you are using painters tape, when pressing z home, the tip of your extruder should touch the bed on both the left and right side of the platform(not press inwards on the bed, just sit right on it-adjust the screw that hits the endstop if needed). Then go into your slic3r settings, in infills and perimeters, change your first layer height to 0.3. This should get you at the right z height every time you print.  

Once again, thank you all and we will keep you posted more as we keep fulfilling units! -Team RoBo 3D

      seen the last post was in November, it is now January, and still nothing new about the delivery status it starts to look a bit sad around here ... (and yes, I am waiting for my printer still)

      @david they asked that we notify them if we really wanted our printer in kit, which I did... :-) thus my question ;-)

      Thanks for keeping us updated. Any idea when I can get mine? My batch had an estimated delivery date of May 2013.

      @Romain

      You will find that the Robo team mentioned several weeks ago that all printers will be shipped assembled.

      It is apparently easier to ship completed printers rather than kits.

      I received mine (Assembled ABS) last Tuesday.... test print today (was overseas last week).

      Hi,

      What about unassembled printers? It seems to me that it should be easier to send, isn't it? :)

      Thanks, and good luck in fullfilling all the orders :) Can't wait to build and use my Robo3D :)
