Metal Delta KS Campaign Update #12: Parts received from cutters and now with tapping and painting company January 29 2017, 0 Comments
Finally, some update worthy news :)
Good news: The parts have finally been turned over to the tapping and painting company. we ordered 100 sets just in case there are rejects so that all 65 backers are sure to get what they need to start building.
Not-so-good news: Some pieces have some quality issues wherein the laser did not cut all the way, leaving an ugly burr on one side. Not to worry, the affected part is not precision sensitive, and they said that they will clean it up and grind it down to look better.
Here are some pics:
Looking back, we're glad we went with the contingency design because with the laser issues this may have taken longer with all the rejected parts. Seems lucky that only the square endstop holder was affected and not the more crucial pieces. And don't worry because the holes will be tapped to make it true, and with the paint, the imperfections will be covered.
From here it looks like we could get the tapping and painting done in about a week and a half, then a few more days to wrap them individually and ship here to the US.
Once we get them, we will be shipping right away. We will also be shooting the instructional videos as soon as we get our hands on the parts, so it is possible that you get the kits before we have the vids ready, but it should only be a short gap.
Thanks again everyone for your patience, and we're very sorry for the delays.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
