Metal Delta KS Campaign Update #9 Sheet Metal Quality Issues October 24 2016, 0 Comments

Hi Folks,

The 1st 5 samples have arrived, and only 3 of them are worthy of shipping to the 1st few backers. Some of the bends were not in the right place. We have noted this to the manufacturer, and there will be 5 more that will arrive in 1 to 2 weeks (already queued up in the factory). The packaging looks like it took some stress, but luckily it didn't affect the final dimensions of the sheet metal inside, below are some pics:
packaging - while it didnt affect the contents, we will request more padding

3 of the 5 sets are looking good, this is one of the good ones

Other updates:

  • The GeckoTek beds are going through the last stages of manufacturing (silkscreening the logo).
  • Haydn's arms hit a few delays (not his fault). He should be receiving some raw materials this week as well, then he will build the arms. I'll keep you posted on any developments on this.
