Loyal Solidoodle fans,
I’m happy to see so many energetic minds eager to get their printers. Thank you to all who have put their trust in us and in our dream. We’re very close to shipping. As you can see, our assembly line is up and running and we’re putting the finishing touches on it right now. We have all of the materials that we need in house right now except for the steel frames. I personally visited our supplier on Tuesday to get an update. As I write this post, our frames are currently being made. Our supplier’s best shipping estimate is that the first round of frames will ship on Tuesday of next week, which puts them at our facility on Wednesday. At that time we’ll be able to begin assembly, testing and shipping. Thank you all who have been so patient. When we launched our new printer two months ago we had no idea we would see this level of demand, and we’re working around the clock and moving heaven and earth to put the necessary people, materials and processes in place to be able to ship thousands of top-quality printers. In the meantime, please feel free to join in the discussion on our Google Group, our Facebook Page and/or IRC Freenode Channel (#Solidoodle). Also, now is a great time to brush up on your 3D design skills. Check out our Google Sketchup Tutorial if you haven’t already done so.
