New Manufacturer In the House - Aluminum Blocks Mercilessly Carved

Hi backers,

It took a while to untangle from our last manufacturer and we placed order with the new manufacturers last month and finally after the typical sample making, adjustment process, I am happy to show they are in full swing making a large qty of the RADIUS parts.

It took a while for the new manufacturer to tweak the CAD file, adjust their machines, made a few prototypes, and lots of back and forth negotiations and here they are, lots and lots of parts ready for plating and assembly.

Fresh corner modules from the CNC milling machines.

Each tray holds 100 corner modules, at the point of this photo there are 11 trays stacked. The production still in process and they are making more.


Aluminum milling, 180 corners at a time.

Responding to everyone:

We have been e-mailing those of you who have questions individually, as supposed to on the main comment sections. Many of you have received the RADIUS cases, I hope you like it and please do give feedback, it means a lot to us.

For those who have not received your reward, please bear with us a bit more. As you can see, we are finally getting the parts ready and as I said in last few updates, I will not rest until everyone's rewards are delivered, that is something I will not back away from. I estimate 2 weeks and we will start shipping to the rest of the backers.

TIP FOR SNUG FIT:

Squeeze in the X (about 1/8") and re-install the corner modules, this will create the tension to retain and pull inward the corners, creating a very snug fit.

I will update when we have more pics to show and progress to update everyone.
Once again, we apologize for the delays and thank you for being our awesome backers.

Best,

H

      FIVE MONTH DELAY IS UNACCEPTABLE (AND COUNTING). None of the backers agreed to this length of delay nor lack of guaranteed of delivery date. This is poorly managed. I see no attempt for compensation for those who put their faith and money into your company. Your words mean nothing anymore because of the continuous failure to deliver after each message. FAIL FAIL FAIL IS WHAT THIS PROJECT IS.

      Disappointing how a great idea can be destroyed by ill-experienced people.

      Lesson learned, Don't back anyone without a guarantee that if delivery date cannot be met, that a full refund will be made.

      At the end of the day, we, the funders, have to know when you will deliver. Would appreciate if you get back to us on a scheduled delivery. Else, please give back our money. Please contact me at tsang_andrew@me.com.

      Man, this thing is really disappointing. I want out.

      Hoping for the best, but not going to hold my breath. I'm a little disheartened though by the problems encountered by people who have already received their case. I'm also a little miffed that people who ordered from the website received their case before backers. Certainly not the way you want to conduct business given that the backers got you the funding. I hope things shape up and work out, but I'm skeptical.

      Hi! I wrote to you several updates ago about changing my delivery address, because I no longer live there. What can I do to give you my new address? Please contact me at pedroza.franco@me.com

      Thanks,

      "We have been e-mailing those of you who have questions individually, as supposed to on the main comment sections." This is an absolute line of crap. I've emailed them multiple times through kickstarter AND through their official website http://www.mod-3.com/. Not one response... not even to say, 'hey, we got your email and we will get back to you.' TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE, MIS-MANAGED PROJECT AND A SHODDY PRODUCT TO BOOT (although, I can only go by what other's have commented on that last point, as I still haven't received my stupid case!!!)

      My black x frames is warped and will not stay tight on the phone. It seems the legs themselves are torqued. Please send me a straight one.

      2 weeks? How many times have we heard this? Give me my refund and I will go away.

      Looking forward to it! I hope the iPhone 5S will fit in the case, as both that phone and the case are likely to arrive at the same time it seems ;)
