UPDATE 12

First of all we want to make it clear that this is not a fraudulent campaign and we are very disappointed that the given image can lead to that conclusion.

Personally I am sad to hear this because the last months I and the whole Natural Robotics team are giving 100% for the project to go ahead. 

We all know some scam projects on Kickstarter. 

In our case, we understand that with the accumulated delay your patience runs out but the information that we have given in the updates we believe that they do not give that image. 

 We have always given sincere messages and we have given details of the problems that have been appearing as well as of the solutions and improvements that we have found (elements of the oversized electronics, greater area of ​​impression, station of cleaning and recycling, multi languaje ...) 

 We have probably made a mistake in the way we approach communications, since we have focused our efforts on advancing the manufacture of the machine and we wanted to avoid updates without remarkable progress. 

 We are currently doing printing tests of large pieces, this is where the problems appear, we enclose some photographs of failures but as you can see they are not results that we like to share.
The problem is in the interface of the galvanometric head, we detect random errors in the control of the galvo and this results in some layers being displaced or not printing correctly. 

The programmers and engineers of the team are focused on solving the function of the software that controls the galvo to have an optimal result and solve the problem. 

The doors of our offices are open to all backers who want to personally see the company, the human team and the work we do. 

Thanks for your understanding,

Process of sintering a layer in white PA12. It is difficult to define but you can see the round shape in the center of the image:

      Thanks for the update. You stated in the September update that "the VIT is 100% functional".
      We can see now 2 months later that that is not the case. Therefor since this campaign is not meeting its promised shipping time frame, will you process refunds for those backers that request them?
