Update #36

Update

It's great to see all the assembled B9Creators, I appreciate the photos folks have posted over on the support forum.  

It's also great to see everyone's tips and suggestions.  The support forum has been very active and that's a great thing for our developing community.

I anticipated having the software ready by today but it's not.  Between time spent fielding assembly support and getting ready for my tip, it's not quite done yet.  And I really NEED this break.  So I promise to hit it hard as soon as I get back and get it done!  

Thanks again for the support and your patience.

      JFTR ... we declared our pledge of $ 2675,- (€ 2154,92) as "value" and customs charged € 409,53 (Germany).
      It may be a good idea to have a "commercial invoice" with the package, since that's what customs expect.

      Hi,

      I've a serious issue with italian custom that only Michael can solve: after a week of emails and calls I've send all I have: email with payment by Amazon, the resin's invoice, declaration that $2675.00
      are: $1800 for kit 3D printer to assemble+$147 for shipment +$84 for resin+$644 for software that I haven't yet.

      THEY SAY THAT THEY WANT THE INVOICE with $1800+$147 for shipment !!!

      They say that otherwise won't leave the parcel.

      I'm praying Michael for sending me the invoice!

      Maurizio

      P.S. anyone in Italy received the machine?

      Returning back from boys-camp and i got the packet-invitation, YAY! :)
      Will not be able to pick it up till friday, but easy...

      And yes: The value declared was just shy of 1800$ also the NON-UPS-way just worked perfectly and i only have to pay 213.40 swiss francs for customs which is really a moderate toll-tag.

      101% happy with the way it went till now. Now the building on the weekend and then.... Oh the suspense! The first print! :)

      IMPORTANT to all international backers, for the ones who received the printer already i would like to know how much was marked by "Michael Joyce" ?? did he declared ".... a $2675 reward will be invoiced at $1843..." "1843???" i ask this because finally i received the letter of portuguese customs saying the printer has arrived and of course they ask how much i pay for tax purposes... i expect to at least around 25% of the printer value declared, but i would like to know if Michael declare a lower price or is the normal price before i go to the customs...
      thanks

      Leonardo, are you in Italy? They ask me for the invoice, too but I haven't. Did they ask you for invoice?

      Hi Mike,

      I've received my B9creator today in Japan. No problem. Thank you for the good packaging.

      ---to Leonardo Meccia: I had to pay for the customs 5700yens (about $70) and the value of the printer was mentioned on the customs declaration $2500. If this can help.

      Yes take your time, and do some regeneration - I know how important this is especially when programming.
      Your assembly instructions just were too good, so we finished to early (my is ready also, just wonderful the best build yourself kit I ever got !).

      You certainly have earned some time off!! Enjoy your break and come back refreshed! Your software will probably be a lot better if you take a breather before finishing it.
