Update #6

Shipping starting next week!

5 comments

The first boards have shipped from China as of yesterday, and should be arriving next week! Short and customs issues or board defects, with those, we can start the mass shipments to kickstarter folks. Looking forward to getting out all those kits! Keep in mind the whole cutting and shipping process is projected to take the better part of November, and should finish up by early December. International shipping is typically 2-3 weeks for Europe, 3-5 weeks for other countries. We'll be sending you an email when we ship your unit. Almost there!

At the same time as the boards are arriving, the new laser cutters have arrived! These should be running Monday when the manufacturer comes to install the glass laser tubes:

Also, surveys have been sent out to those who bought the model rewards. Here are the pictures to choose your kit. They'll be the first things we start cutting with the new cutters, as you guys have been waiting much longer than you should have.

Full resolution versions of all the pictures are available in our flickr stream:
