More News.. good and bad
Firstly, I would like to thank you all for the support and kind messages. Your response is truly unbelievable, I did mess up and I messed up badly, you should have your product ages ago. Yet…there was literally none of hate or grudge against me and my work, and it is truly unbelievable in the internet era of hate. This shows only the level of you my friends who are involved in this project. I would like to humbly point that out and thank you for all the support again.
As I have said in the last update there was a big mistake in production which was totally the manufactures fault. I have put lots effort into finding the best possible company to provide machining services, neither the less the common custom is the fact that I had to pay upfront for the ordered work. Luckily, I paid only 50% of the overall production costs. After pointing out the error to the manufacturer the whole world literally collapsed.
Manufacturer not only did not recognise his error but made any form of the contact impossible. They have stopped responding to my emails or phone calls, apparently, the person who was responsible for the project is not available now. I would love to point the name of the company I cannot do that, because of confidentially law. My only option is going to court and fight for my rights.
So I blew off the of the half of Kickstarter money ( the manufacturing cost+ materials) and end up with literally nothing… but don’t worry I promised that I will deliver the product and I will do it!
So what is the plan?
As many of you have already known I have tried multiple options in regards to buying the machine, but even with your Kickstarter support initially, it wasn’t possible.
After all of those problems I started thinking about it again, I have figured out that building my own machine wouldn’t be that difficult and definitively much cheaper than buying one. As I have many years of experience in CNC aerospace, motorsport industry I was able to put a project together. So, I would like to proudly introduce to you my new machine. “Ncut” or NMill” (I haven't decided on the name yet).
It will be high performance and high precision CNC machine based on a Granite base, due to costs the best and most expensive (machines like Datron are made from this material). I have already contacted many CNC component suppliers and after introducing myself and the Ncore project and other upcoming designs they offered not only full support but great discounts for the components- so the CNC machine project is fully funded!
Machine design is finished in 95%, main components like granite base, screws, spindle, and servo motors are already ordered. I have also found unit space for the machine and NUDEcnc company premises. Granite base is in production, I expect it to be ready in the New Year time, so the working system should be ready at the end of January
Why this is the only reasonable option?
Because I have used all other options...;)
The Ncore was never a standalone project. I have mentioned in the Kickstarter campaign at some point, this was the first component of the Supercomputer which I am planning to build. But I have never explained what it actually means. My plan is to reinvent all the non-electronic components to improved performance (thermal, noise, weight, size, usability, universalness etc)
So the project includes:
1. Cpu lapping system- Nlap- low cost, no hassle lapping tool for CPU-s, personally I love this design as it makes lapping dead easy with superb precision (0.02 mm), tool has been made and tested and works brilliantly,
2. Nkey series- custom keyboards (you can check them out on my website- link),
3. Ncore-CPU cooling: Ncore V1 and Ncore V2(for LGA 2066)
4. Ncoin- unique GPU cooling system- which I am even more proud than Ncore itself (patent application was supplied)
5. 100 % silent computer case,
6. Sub-zero everyday use cooling system- I have a working prototype,
7 .Liquid nitrogen CPU and GPU cooling pots (working prototype developed with Buildzoid),
8. Peltier cooling system.
Resuming I hope that future plans show you that the only way to fulfil this and future projects, as well as making, is financially profitable is to have my own production line.
I am sad that I haven’t done that straight after the Kickstarter…that way I would be able to complete your order much quicker. But our life is a learning curve I cannot undo what I have done already, just learn from my mistakes. And once again apologise for not fulfilling the order on time and thank you again for unbelievable support and kind words.
Happy New Year to everyone!!!
