Update #20

Production printers rolling out

9 comments

Greetings,

A lot has happened in the last two weeks.  We got out first batch of cases and have begun assembling units.  We will start shipping out the first printers on Monday!  Output will remain relatively low until we receive the full batch of cases via sea freight in 3-4 weeks.

When you receive your printer, it's been fully tested and is ready to use out of the box.  We'll be publishing our Mac and Windows tools, and OSX applications next week.

If you'd like to use our hosted mPrints, you don't need anything other than a WiFi connection.  You simply enter the serial number of your printer on our website and start printing content.

I'm attaching a few photos of the printer and packaging.  We've been through countless revisions, manufacturing delays, and refinements.  I'm happy to say that the final product is better than I could have imagined.  I can't wait to see the novel uses everyone will think of for mPrinter.

As usual, if you need anything, please email us directly at info@themprinter.com.

      Jose: It's a bit hard to say. We are trying to devise the most fair method to ship the units we have now while waiting on the rest of the cases. It will probably be random, with a priority for early bird backers.
