Backer Update #16: Production Update

Posted by Robert Hamm (Creator)

Hello Squares,

NuBox is moving forward, albeit at a slower pace than I anticipated during the campaign. SO, I wanted to check in and let you know what's been going on over the last few weeks.

Packaging has been confirmed and is on the way. This is pretty exciting. I expect It here by the middle of September. 

New lens are in production and should be here around the middle to end of September. I've noticed that lenses take a long time.

I've been using this time to continue work on the shutter mechanism and produce the main bodies and lens cartridges. I've switched to using metal screws and fasteners for joining the smaller pieces instead of using 3D printed fasteners. Originally I had hoped to use DLP printing, but that didn't work out.

I appreciate all the patience, understanding, and support I have received. I know that the shipping timeline estimate didn't work out as planned, and I feel bad about that. However, I haven't stopped working on the project and am excited to get NuBox to you.

Want to chat? Just reach out to my email or on the social networks. I generally respond right away except for Friday through Monday- those are my busiest days for wedding photography (which is what I do when I'm not working on Hamm Camera stuff).

Cheers,

Rob

      Thank you for the update Rob,I appreciate knowing the progress you are making with fine tuning the NuBox. Anticipation is a good part of the experience of waiting for something special!

      That's the way the cookie crumbles! Things happen... we all gotta keep on keeping on with things; and I'm pretty sure it'll all be worth the wait in the end.
