Update 1-29-13

It is really bad timing, as all metal fabricating companies local and overseas are busy because of China's holiday in February. They take a whole month off.
I have found a company to make the parts for us. They are going to begin their break on Feb6th. They are going to do partial of the order and have it ship by air to me before that. By the time I finish shipping the sets for those. The remaining parts needed should be here. Hope to have the parts by next week. Once I get the parts, I will assemble and make a video of the new Eventorbot and start shipments (you will not be disappointed with the new version).
If all goes as plan, shipments might start next week.

      It seems like everytime I start to get antsy, we get a reassuring update on the status. Keep up the good work and we will try not to kill you with our anticipation.

      @ Quarta
      As I'm from also from Europe, can you advise me, what should or it would be better not to have on the outside of the box. I know that the invoice should not.
      @ Duy
      What about the upgrades - 3rd rod ?

      Thanks for the update Duy. Again, great work, can't wait to get my eventorbot!

      Great News.

      Can you give us an idea of what will be shipped first?
      The completely assembled printer or the complete kits.
      Just like to get a sense of when my order will be fullfilled so that I can get everything else I need organized to start printing once I receive my printer.

      Also, I believe you mentioned that a sample piece of filamant would be included.
      What material would that be made of?

      Excellent news Duy!

      Hi Duy,
      thanks for the update. Delay is not an issue (even if we all want to start playing :-) ).
      Having a full metal machine, is really a big improvement. I hope you are still within budget.

      by the way take your time to pack, especially for oversea backers (a missing part could be nightmare...).
      please let us know before shipping, depending on countries we will need different information sticked to the outside of the box (like content, cost,....).

      Thanks again!!!

      Where are latest plans available, technical drawing, BOM list etc? Latest with fresh updates. I'm slowly preparing to collect all needed and not included parts, before or soon after I receive a packet from Guy.

      Where others have sourced parts, motors etc. Stores in Europe.
      Guy will you offer some help with: "All other parts needed for the build should be easy to find."

      Thanks. Great Project.

      Thanks for the update Duy! I'm starting to get excited! I'm looking forward to assembling my Eventorbot!
      I guess it's about time for me to start buying filament :D .

      Thanks for the update Duy!

      You are running one of the most informative Kickstarter projects. Even though there have been hiccups along the way, you have managed to keep your backers informed and behind you. Others should look here for pointers on how to run a good campaign.

      Sounds good Duy, thanks for the update. I'm very appreciative of all the hard work you've been putting in, and can't imagine the details and difficulties you've had to face. Sounds like you're nearing the end of this phase, which must feel good. :)

      Great news Duy! It's been a long time coming but I hope the new all-metal design will make the machine that much better!

      I am curious -- does the new metal extruder stepper bracket have dual extruder support or will we have to print or otherwise acqure a new bracket? I was doing some basic functionality testing with the SLUM board and my Netduino a few weeks ago and it seemed to work as expected so I will look forward to testing and validating the dual extrusion idea once I get the machine running solidly with a single extruder!

    13. Joseph Bozarth on January 29, 2013

      It is good to hear something. Hopefully all does go to plan. I am really itching to start printing. Did you find a good price on the metal parts then that allowed you to stay in budget?

    14. Limbo on January 29, 2013

      Don't worry Duy, we have time. Thanks for the update.
