sorry for the delay. As you may have seen from our various social networks, we have been at MakerFaire in Rome and this has involved us very much.
We brought some of the prototypes that we finished. This was a commitment made even several months ago and we absolutely had to go. It also allowed us to collect some feedback from the public. It was a way to rest the staff and for us to show to the makers the Evo-One and it has also allowed us to meeting new people and meet some of you!
We hired a person who will help us to constantly respond to messages and publish consistently small updates. Even on our social network where you can follow the progress of the work day by day.
The mgn9 rails we ordered arrived today !, finally these days have cleared customs and are now with us.
But the new 30A power supplies are still to come. We expected that the supplier had all the quantity we needed. They were shipped these days and should arrive this week.
To speed up the end of production we found some Italian craftsmen who will be working and pasted the aluminum inserts instead of doing it ourselves. This will allow us to save time. it was a difficult choice because they are natural oak which is very difficult to mill because of its grain and will be for us an important additional cost. Furthermore, this will increase the quality because this company is specialized in processing of precious wood.
We ended the first machines and doing some stress tests with the new electronic boards and we saw that sometimes randomly had a nuisance of a limit switch that giving the hard limits signal stop the machining process. We found the solution by adding a capacitor of 100nF in parallel and this has finally solved the problem. However, he forced us to waste any more time to understand the problem and find the solution. But now we finally resolved!
The production, however, is going well and we are excited to see your evo-one start to be true cncmill.
For delivery then we are missing very little and plan to begin shipments from October 26 sending as the machines will be terminated.
So we do not wait longer to have the first batch ready, but will ship in the order from the backers list.
We want to thank you again for all the support that you are giving to us and we like to think that we are all one big family.
Andrea Pischedda and
The MakerDreams team!
