Have a question?
@Jeremy you should try the $8 PS3 Eye camera! It is am amazing camera on it!!! Amazing low light as well!!
Just got mine. Tested it all day Love it!!! I want one for each of my 3d printers. C920 webcam works great! No issues.
Got a tracking number , doesnt seem to work on the tracking site but I don't care ;-) cant use astrotouch anyways as my cr-10 is only at 21 hours of a 96 hour print and my i3 is out of use until they finaly get round to delivering the extruder bearing I order days agao.
Ok so I am moving forward :) I have some questions about the online slicers. How does the slicer handle the start code? I have the following code
G0 X0 Y-85
But it doesn't set the temperature, it was only set to 89 :(
I will! I even maid suggestions to them to contact you and get a pre-made printer profile set up in your system as tey are keen to having control of their settings (They use a custom skinned cura lol) so it is in their interest, plus they wanna be the end all be all of click it and forget it of printing!
Sorry to hear this.
We very specifically said that it SHOULD work based on information from their website and a few interactions with them. We never claimed to have verified or tested personally because we haven’t.
Having said that, if Dagoma is willing to work with us we will work with them to make it compatible. You need to complain to them too.
So I have a problem. I bought this specifically for the Dagoma Neva, and it doesn't work. I have made several attempts to get it t work, and all it does is starts to print, and gets to the end of the second layer, and then it initiates a filament eject on the Neva. This is what happens when you perform a double tap on the Neva bed. I was told you were working with Dagoma when I ordered this, and clearly you haven't. I had to set up a 'custom' printer in the online slicing and it doesn't work. I will now try using as just a plain Jane astroprint box and see if it works that way, but I am very disappointed at this point. :(
I received it!!!!! Woohoo!!!
@Jeffrey Seymore, seems that your package will be delivered TODAY.
@all, KS fulfillment services are not great and don't give us a way to automatically give you guys your individual tracking number. We're still going through the shipments and we can't divert time to check people's shipment status.
We appreciate and share the excitement but please have some patience, your package will reach you. If it's been more than two weeks since you got the shipment notification and still no package, we will check for you then. Before that, a little patience Pleeease ;)
I got a shipping notice last week, but it didn't contain any tracking info. Is it possible to get that? It said priority shipping, but it hasn't arrived yet, Should have arrived Saturday.
Got shipping notice, cant wait :-).
EU orders are on a different schedule. However don't worry yours will ship today or tomorrow.
I've had no notification of a shipment and I was backer 18??
Drew Taylor has sent you a package.
IT IS HAPPENING!!!!
Everything is going well. ABTs are being assembled and sent out in order of pledge. It won't be long.
Updates pretty please?!?!?!?!?! :D
Any more updates on the shipping of the 3.5" kits?!?!?! :D :D :D
The case is free for people that bought ( and will buy ) the 5" kit and and be purchased here for others: https://www.3dagogo.com/astroprint/designs/5-inch-touchscreen-rasperry-pi
is the case stl being made freely\commercially available or just for the people who bought the upgrade kit?
think I would to outfit my astrobox setup the same as the touch.
That is correct @James Fordham & @Karl Thorp. It's for people that already have an AstroBox ( or a Raspberry Pi 3 ). It includes: Plastic case + hardware, touchscreen and pre-flashed 8GB SD card. It does not include the Raspberry Pi 3 or the power supply.
@Karl Thorp, it's everything apart from the Pi I believe.
What is the ABT Touch 3.5” upgrade?
I am excited to be hearing good news soon! Got my last email asking to confirm shipping details so I assume it is very close now!!!!
I do have a quick question though, is compatibility with the NEVA still coming out of the box? It is the only printer I have that doesn't have a screen, and is the one I want to use this with!!! They have some weird firmware, and doesn't work with direct control with any apps that I am aware of currently. I asked several times during the campaign, and afterwards, and was told yes, you are working with Dagoma on their printer and the ABT. Is this still good to go? Or possibly shortly after release?
Got My ABT this afternoon, it is up and running printing the 5" case. Very nice well worth the wait no regrets so far!
Just PM-ed you guys directly regarding shipping. THANKS!
Can you provide a step file of the two pieces for 5" case?
I would like to make some changes which is close to impossible with an STL file.
@n/a my kit had a Waveshare 5 Inch HDMI LCD 800x480 display/touchscreen in it.
@n/a we don't have anything larger than 5". We sourced the screens from Waveshare
Sorry I know itsproballyin an update but dont have the time to go through them - which screen did you use for the 5" and larger?
Doh! Caps shouldn’t make a difference in the url. Thanks for reporting, we’ll fix
My AstroPrint 5" kit has been patiently waiting for me to get off work, coped up in my mailbox. Now that I'm home, I can certainly confirm the included letter is amazing. Putting it together, setting things up, and updating also seemed painless.
There is an error on the included paper "QUICK START GUIDE" (which, ironically, is also all caps). The web URL "ASTROPRINT.COM/ABT-SETUP" (all caps) is 404, however "abt-setup" works. You can tell the Documentation guys were a bit more excited than your web guys... :)
Same here - got it all assembled in a few minutes, did the over the air software update and we're running! :-) Nice work!
My package arrived here. I received my AstroPrint 5" kit! Can't wait to build and set it up....
Just received my Astrobox 5" kit! Can't wait to get it all set up and running. Thanks for all your hard work! By the way, loved the letter you guys, that was hilarious :)
Hope that light is the Astroprint rocket blasting off.
You are correct, the 5” don’t have
Injection molded cases. Sorry for the confusion. They ship with the laser cut one and a 3D Printable STL to be delivered shortly.
I also have some good news for the 3.5” backers: the latest sample which we got minutes ago has been approved for production :) we’re putting together an update and we will be giving you more updates as we hear from the factory.
Guys the light can be seen at the end of the tunnel... and it’s not a train ;)
I'm seeing some conflicting comments about whether the 5" kits ship with a case: "we'll be sending out 5" cases (not dependent on Injection Molding) very soon" and then later "the 5" Kits (which have no case)." Just to check, the 5" kits going out do still come with the minimal laser-cut acrylic case as promised back in July, and the 3D printable file to be sent later, correct?
Just received shipping notification, very excited to put it to good use. You guys should be proud, you've shipped literally YEARS before some other projects I have backed. Hardware can be hard, you guys made it look easy!
Hi, could you please provide any update on current situation? We're still getting only informations about how it is delayed .. is there any possibility that everything is already prepared and we get our ABT in near future?
How about giving us the option to get our boxes now and email us the stl files to print our own cases? I have 2 I’m waiting for and dying.
Looking forward to the update, not looking forward to being told of more delays and late shipping :-(.
@Daniel Recha Duran, Your ABT is in the mail. We have a 3d printable case for the 5" screen in the works. I'll post the link when it's done.
I back for the astrobox with lasercut acrilic case. Can I print a astrobox case in my 3d printer where I can get the stl?
@Jeffrey, I know... Sorry about that, we're waiting for the last case sample from our supplier (already 2 days overdue) to hopefully be able to tell you some good news and more definitive schedule. Also the 5" Kits (which have no case) are going out (some are already in the mail). I know that doesn't help you but it does let you know that things on every aspect except the plastic case are going well.
We're doing all we can to get the units done and mailed.
Over a month, and no updates? Come on guys :)
I have a question will this work on the Obsidian 3d printer
@mcandrewji, we're waiting from the latest (hopefully last) sample from the Injection Molding company. When we get that we'll do another update. Software is now at a good spot and we'll be sending out 5" cases (not dependent on Injection Molding) very soon.
@nick, I can't confirm based as we haven't tested it. M3D did tell us that the Pro will be compatible with Open Source tools such as ours but until people start getting some and reporting back, we can't confirm. If you have one, simply create an AstroBox Gateway and try it out. The Touch uses the same underlying software.
Can you confirm the astrobox will be fully compatible with the M3D Pro printer?.
Time for Update #21??
