I am really sorry about the delayed update. A lot has been happening and I just haven't had the time to post. I hope you all can understand!
It's been a long road but everything is finally coming together! Last week I received a few samples of the production hot ends and they look and work great. The quality of the machining and overall finish is exactly what I was hoping for.
Prometheus in all its glory :D
The complete production batch of parts will arrive on Monday. I have all of the other components sorted so I am just waiting on the rest of the machined parts.
Bags of kit components:
Tomorrow I am going to try to put together a set of step-by-step instructions for assembly.
In addition to this startup business, I work as an Industrial CNC Router Operator so unfortunately I can't spend all of my time on shipping, but I am going to be working on shipping out these hot ends as fast as I can!
I will likely start shipping on Tuesday next week. I will be shipping the orders in the order I received them and I realistically should have ALL orders (including the orders made after the campaign) shipped within the next 2 weeks.
I can't wait to release Prometheus into the wild! I hope you guys are half as excited as I am about this :D I am confident that Prometheus will make many happy printers.
If you have any questions, comments, or last minute changes to your shipping address, just let me know.
Finally, I would like to extend my utmost gratitude to all of those who supported my campaign. Thank you so much for believing in Prometheus, and also for believing in me! Creating the Prometheus Hot End has been my dream and now it is finally coming together thanks to all of your support :) I now have my own 3D Printing startup: DisTech Automation (www.dta-labs.com) running and I have several ideas that I plan to bring to the 3D Printing community in the future. I hope I will be able to give back to the community by sharing the Prometheus Hot End and all of my future innovations!
Happy Printing :-)
