Have a question?
Got an email notification by Lena about getting my machine delivered soon. Backer number 75. I'm quite excited!
@Anna: Thx, I will try these as a startingpoint.
@Meister Richter: #204 and an early bird
@Niels: great, glad you found a way. For the operating range for leather: that is hard to say, as there are so many different sorts of leather. I use 2,2mm natural colored unfinished top cow leather. For cutting I use 100/250/4. For engraving I use 0-40/2000-750. Maybe you can start your own testing from there.
@Niels - @Bastian - Backer-Nr.? Early Bird?
Thanks Anna, found a way to resolve it. Because I was connected to the Mr. Beam network, my laptiop could not get the DNS of the "website" they provide. So I got the DNS/IP directly via DNS Lookup, the used IP is 126.96.36.199 . This way I could connect. Had a strange errormessage while connecting Mr. Beam to my network after that, it said Mr. Beam could not connect like 0.1 second after I entered the password, Tried 15 minutes to connect, always the same message. I just wanted to restart the Mr. Beam when I found out, it did connect, but always got the error message.
Now the only thing I miss is "leather" in the material presets. Do you have a range I should operate in?
Hey Niels, the best way to reach out for support is email@example.com that way, all the team members will be able to read your request.
I had the same problems with the connection. If you can somehow connect the Mr. Beam to your router via LAN cable please do so, it will solve your problems right away. My router is on a different level than my Mr. Beam so I installed a repeater next to my Mr. Beam and connected the Mr. Beam to the repeater. Works like a charm. Hope this helps.
Having problems connecting to the local network of the Mr. Beam, or better accessing the Welcome Wizard. Is the shopQmr-beam mail the fastest way to get support? Can you report again when you have started the setup Bastian. Please.
Mine arrived today as well (Tübingen, Gernany) Got the delivery mail yesterday. DHL. Haven't opened it yermt, since I am not in Tübingen right now. Can't wait to use it :-)
Mr. Beam arrived today (Bremen, Germany). I am following the step by step instruction at the moment. Anything specific anybody wants to know?
@Mambo: well IMHO there are only 2 things you can do:
#1 complaining about everyone and everything all the time (--> boring to look for "madewithmrbeam hashtags") OR
#2 be happy that there are already some devices in the streets and people (like me) that would like to share their first impressions and experiences.
I don't need a "thank you" or anything else - just patience for yourself. Your device will ship soon.
So, Germany is the first in the line. Better than nothing)
Got the same mail yesterday, Backernumber #204 in Germany, but I am a "late" early bird, while the campaign was running, I found a free spot ;)
@Paje: sorry, now I've seen that the pickafont website also shows the licensing infos :-)
@Papje: still preferring dafont.com because there you find better infos about author and licensing of the fonts. Which is necessary if you want to use it for commercial projects.
+1 for Arwed: I also really appreciate infos from users that receive their Mr. Beam!
Please keep us others updated!!! That really helps don't loosing confidence in the whole project.
@Klaus Zimmermann following #madewithmrbeam is a bit boring, because there a only a hand full of posts with Mr. Beam II - others are Mr. Beam 1!
Finally: A special thank to Anna - for all her posts on Instagram! - She's the one who gave me back the confidence that we will receive a great item - soon or later ;-)
So as backer 556 there might be only one or two years to receive mine :-) (just kidding of course!!!)
Looking for a font? This website is awesome!
Wow: Backer 11, 26 & 69 receive in mid-February their Mr.Beam.... Good to hear there is life, but difficult to deal with the fact that it is unpredictable when I receive mine (#336). But thanks for your postings, I appreciate it. Without such information there would be nothing but uncertainty.
Got such an email too today. Backer #69 (Germany).
@Sabine I got this mail too!
I'm super exited that the device is finally coming. For the record my backer number is 26 and I'm coming from NRW (Germany).
Today, i got a mail that my Mr. Beam will arrive soon and should update my address in case it changed. Did anyone else receive such a mail, too?
@Martin Das Gerät ging nach NRW, also nicht München.
My Mr. Beam arrived about a week or so and I am testing as good as I can. Like Anna said - some Problems or faulty operations by myself occured but the device is working properly. I am not sure if I am also a beta tester, but I guess the Mr.Beam Team is happy for all Feedback they can get out of the deliverd devices. Dont worry bout your Money! The Team around Teja will deliver a nice appliance. Just check social media channels for #madewithmrbeam ;)
Thanks Anna, nice from you to hear something! I’m not worried to hear that your Mr Beam is not properly working. In fact, I’m happy these problems occer in testing by users. But the silence from Mr. Beam, why not play fully open cards? I think backers would appreciate this!
@Anna: Thanks for the post, I am happy to see that testing is on going and issues are being taken care of. I personally am in no hurry and would prefer to have a Mr. Beam that has most of the kinks worked out of it.
@Papje: Yes, we are allowed to comment. To be honest, I personally can only speak for myself, but I put every bit of free time in testing the device. There have been some issues, some minor, some major, but my Mr. Beam had to go back to repair the 3rd time now. I am sure no one of you would appreciate getting their device now and sending it back shortly after.
When it works, it works great, but there are quite some "childhood diseases" that have to be coped with before send Mr. Beams out big time.
Why are beta testers not commenting here? Is this not allowed or what’s going on?
I want to get a refund after waiting almost 2 years. Please refund. Don't want to be scammed
Backer number 11 here and still waiting. Getting pretty annoying now to hear nothing endlessly. Just put out some concrete information!
I would buy a filter but I don't trust the team with my money any more.
@Edo: und war das eine „reguläre“ Lieferung oder bist du auch im Raum München und „Beta-Tester“?
@Teja&Co: Mir ist ja schon klar, dass das Gras nicht schneller wächst, wenn man dran zieht. Aber es wäre doch nett zu wissen, ob der Rasen wenigstens noch grün ist (oder wo die verdorrten Stellen sind...)
#47 noch nicht... ;-)
@Edo: Danke für die Info. Also nur 74% des geplanten Monatsziels. Dann wird es für mich wohl Ende des Jahres werden...
#74 ist angekommen.
schon ok. ihr müßt hier ja nicht antworten. was interessieren euch schon anfragen von unterstützern...
meine güte... das ist echt traurig, wie ihr das handhabt...
könnt ihr bitte endlich mal einen plan veröffentlichen, wann welche backernummernbereiche ihre lieferung bekommen?
ja, ich habe das mit den 100 pro monat gelesen...
Hallo! Ich möchte von meinem Kauf zurück treten und den Finanzierunsbeitrag erstattet bekommen.
Wie geht das?
@anna: may I know the size (diameter) of the exhaust port of Mr. Beam II? I want to make my own air filter, thank you.
If the Mr. Beam team is looking for a social media/communication person, maybe Anna could do the job (parttime) :D
@Anna: thank you so much for sharing!!!! I appreciate your efforts because I see now that there is something existing.
@Chris: no, the air filter does not have a light, also it seems to be a little smaller than the BOFA but as there is no open available datasheet from BOFA I can't really tell.
@Papje: I found it pretty useful for placing my designs on the material. It works pretty accurate for this purpose.
That’s real pity if we can’t use the camera for live streaming!
Anna, that fume extractor looks like a rebadged BOFA v200
Does it have a filter change light on the front or not?
@Papje no. the build in camera only works when the lid is fully open and it will send an updated picture of the work space to the user interface every few seconds.
I’m wondering, is there a record function in the software to use with the build-in camera?
I finally managed to load up my unboxing video on youtube. You can check it out here: https://youtu.be/ADg7haHw-EE
I will load up more videos soon, they are already in production, for example showing how the software looks like right now and demonstrate the camera function. If you are particularly interested in something special please let me know.
@Anna: Yes please. Your Instagram is also pretty neat!
Yes, we like an unboxing video. I’m also interested in the software, how the camera works.
@Klaus Ich bin doch Beta-Tester. Dies wurde aber erst kommuniziert als das Paket bei mir eintraf, daher meine entgegengesetzte Aussage vor Weihnachten. Die Backer Nr. hatte wohl nichts mit der Auswahl zu tun, ich bin aber unter den ersten 100.
I acctually am a beta tester. This wasn't communicated until the package arrived at my door step which is why I told everybody I wasn't before christmas. The backer no didn't necessarily had anything to do with being chose as a beta tester, but I was within the first 100 backers.
I am currently putting content online on a daily basis. Within the next few days I will put up the first longer videos on my youtube channel. Are you guys interested in an unboxing video?
Welcher BackerNo hattest du?
Und du bist kein Beta-Tester, richtig?
Hey Anna, that is very cool. Thank you very much for sharing your experiences!
I keep an eye on your instagramm an also on Svens twitter account!
Thank you very much too, Sven!
