      You guys are the gold standard for Kickstarter updates. While everyone always wishes there were more or more frequent updates, I also know it takes a fair amount of effort. You also have done an excellent job of setting a realistic schedule and warned us early when you saw that schedule slide to the right. More importantly, that slide to the right was improve the product to a specified standard. The core functionality and design was finished and even improved in parallel. The final kicker was a team photo giving credit to all the team members as this project obviously cannot be this successful with one person alone. I wish more crowdfunding projects would use your project as an example and guide on how to run a campaign. I'm excited about the product, but I'm also excited to a see a team of folks learning how to build a company and produce a product.

      @MHelland - thanks for the compliment, happy to make a printer recommendation.

      On the sub $1k tier - we've had good luck with our Printrbot Simple Metal, as well as the CraftBot (although the CraftBot's transitions are a bit longer). We've tested on a Dremel IdeaBuilder, recommend that as another one to look into.

      For $1-3k - the best functioning printer we've found is the MakerBot Replicator 2.

      For $3k+ (high end consumer machines) - We recommend the Type A Series 1/Series 1 Pro. Great quality, large print bed, awesome company.

      Hope that helps! If you have any questions about a specific machine let us know and we'll get you some answers

      Thanks for the informative updates, I find them interesting how your making this and am looking forward to integrating it with a 3d printer. Is there any one printer that you're finding that work best with the Palette over another? I'm currently in the market for another printer since my cobblebot with never be able to print as I desire.
