Great new! We have finished assembling the 50 super early bird N2 printers and tested all of them. It is not easy but we did it. Check out all the machines that are ready and waiting for packing. Our technicians are making the final checks right now. You may notice from the picture that outside is already dark and yes, the picture was taken at 10 PM. We worked extra shift everyday just to make sure that every machine sent to you is in good quality.
We have spent more than 5,000 hours in total on testing those machines. Each machine went through a series of tests including prints from small to large size, dual extruder prints and prints with different materials like PLA and ABS. Here are pictures of the models being printed during the QC process and this is only a tip of the iceberg. (PS: Chinese people love Buddha!)
The next thing is to pack these machines up and send out to each of you Raisers. Let's take a quick view on how we pack these machines. Before anything, we clean the machine completely and put on all the warning labels. Then, we use 12 clips and other restriction parts to hold all moving parts still so they won't be damaged during shipping. Please remember to take all the clips and restriction parts out before operating the printer. Then we pack all the free tools, power cable, one spool of filament, one USB drive, extra nozzle (for KS stretching reward) and camera (if applicable). A lot of foam is used to protect all of those and the printer. At last we pack the printer and the accessories into a large thick carton box and then it is ready for shipping out.
Generally, for all Raisers in Europe, your printers will be sent out on 12.26 (UT+8:00) by sea. For all Raisers in the US, your printers will be sent out on 12.30 (UT+8:00) by sea. For the rest, we will ship your printers out as required way. Please wait for your printer to arrive. (This is only scheduled for the 50 super early bird N2 printers.)
Thank you all for the support and happy holiday! Wish you all happy and lucky!
