Starting to ship rewards
I finally got the last items, the carriage plates. I have started shipping rewards. I shipped a few today to get the feel for shipping the large boxes. I have a bunch more to ship tomorrow. I should get into full production soon.
I have realized that there might be a large amount of scrap if I don't coordinate the cutting with all orders. I am testing some cut optimization software. This lets you plugin all the cuts and tells you how to best to arrange the cuts on each piece. If anyone can recommend good free or cheap optimization software, please post a message here.
I made a quick cutting setup out of MakerSlide and a standard carriage. Here is a video of the cutting area.
