It doesn't matter how close you get to the finish, if you don't finish.
We've been working on that last 10 percent here, preparing for our production start in June. In any project, the first 90 percent takes up a lot of time, but it is the last 10 percent that winds up being very time consuming, since it tends to be a lot of little details.
Aside from production, we continue with beta testing, and are seeing printing speeds heading towards our target of 60mm/s after adding a little lubrication to the system.
We are doing the final design and ordering of smaller parts, such as the hot end heating element and the hot end nozzles, and just lining up everything to get things cranking mid June when the tooling is wrapping up.
Yes, this is 24 minutes of going over each little detail of the final production design.
OK, so, that is what is going on for now, hopefully you will see more from the beta testers starting next week as they receive the upgrades we are putting together.
Just so everyone has an outline here of the schedule we are working towards:
Production Start Mid June,
First Shipments Before End of June,
Existing Orders Out By End of July.
