Production Progress, CAD Files, and Delays

by Gino Magarotto

We wanted to let you all know that, by next week, we expect to complete the production of custom aluminum parts for our first batch of 38 machines.

The step CAD files for the parts that we’ve already fabricated are now available in our GitHub repository. You can review them using the CAD software of your choice. One of our primary design objectives was to simplify the parts to the point where they can be easily modified or replaced using only tools that are likely to exist in a home shop.

Finally, we are changing the provisional delivery date for the machines to October. The project is moving forward, but manufacturing has definitely been moving slower than we initially anticipated. Thank you for your patience!
