It's a kit so fingers crossed they are now over the hurdle and will start shipping kits out faster.

Ordered an orange kit on 24.04.2017.

On Saturday I asked (email) support about the delivery date and just got an email back saying:
"Looks like it will ship tomorrow."

We'll see :)

Order date 25th April, just checked with support and was told it's being packed and should ship out midweek. Another confirmation that they are on time with the estimated shipping table. Excitement reaching critical levels :D

Where did you see the shorter lead times?

Also after having deleted the browser cache and having refreshed several times the webshop page, I can read that the lead time is still 7 weeks both for the MK2S kit as well for the MK2S assembled printer.



Ahm.. yeah, I get the same now too. And yet I wasnt on drugs, and had already had my coffee when I saw it?

Ordered orange/black kit with no extras on April 15. The payment cleared the same day.
Label created June 16th (Friday)
Packed it over the weekend.
UPS picked it up this morning. June 19th shipping to the USA. - no set delivery date yet.
I did pay the UPS Express Saver® 2-3 day shipping so ill keep you posted on its progress.

So 9 weeks lead time for me. But according to previous posts shipping dates, It looks like the clan of the "9 week-ers" is quickly coming to an end.
So just as the "10 week-ers" passed the baton to us, Its now up to the "8 week-ers" to enter the fray.
Good luck gentlefolk of the 8 week clan, see you in the other threads.

I ordered back in April, when the posted lead time was 7 weeks. It ended up taking 8 weeks + 1 week for delivery, but I ain't even mad. Delivery details attached.

Hi guys,

I ordered a Orange and Black kit on the 22th of April. My printer shipped today so 59 days (8.5 weeks) until shipping. It should be delivered on thursday (living in France) :D

Hope it will help some of you waiting

Ordered orange kit April 19th. Spoke with chat support last night requesting a estimated ship date and they told me this week.

Got my notification this morning (6/20/2017) that the label had been created and is ready for UPS pickup. For those having to deal with this painful wait below is a list that helped me get through it.

How I killed time waiting for my Prusa

1. Watched every 3D printing video I could find.
2. Watched build videos and read through the manual.
3. Started collecting items from thingiverse, myminifactory, etc...
4. Learned Fusion 360 and have created roughly 30 designs to fix things around the house.
5. Learned how to use MeshMixer
6. Learned how to use Slic3r, Cura, Simplify3D
7. Ordered a CR-10
8. Canceled order for CR-10
9 . Order Monoprice i3 Plus (Prime Shipping) - Wife is pissed!!!!
10. Order 3 IKEA Lack tables
11. Been printing, learning, and modding the i3 Plus for about 2 weeks.
12. Ordered roughly 20 spools of filament and signed up for the Maker Geek Box Subscripting.

I recommend anyone waiting to follow steps 1-6 (FYI, You don't need Simplify3D). Steps 7-11 only happened because I'm a 35 year old man child that doesn't like to wait. Step 12 is because I have a problem.
