You must have never ordered from MakerGeeks... I too am still waiting but have to say I'm not as anxious now but also won't pre order again.nathan0876 wrote: ↑Feb 04, 2019 7:18 pmI came back to the forums after two months to post exactly what you just did OP so i guess i dont have to now, nothing has changed it seems.
Prusa still not delivering over a year after my original order date, this is just insane, never in my life have i purchased something a year ago then had a supplier promise delivery repeatedly only to never meet any said delivery times while at the same time shipping the part im waiting for out with new orders placed almost a year after mine. Its almost inconceivable.....
Got my voucher through email, and received the PEI sheet 2 weeks ago no problem at all.nathan.b20 wrote: ↑Feb 04, 2019 11:55 amI've not been printing for a while so haven't been actively following the seemingly endless saga of the Prusa Powder Coated PEI steel sheet for the past few weeks. I was wondering if anyone has even started receiving their vouchers following last years Prusa Research choices email?
The situation surrounding these almost mythical printing sheets has unfortunately gone beyond a joke. I'm sure Prusa wish they'd never marketed the Powder Coated sheets and I can understand how challenging supplying them has been, but I also recognise that they did market them, then promised to fulfil them within numerous expanding time-scales before happily supplying them to new buyers of MK3 printers for a time mid last year (which I feel was very naughty considering how many prior customers were still waiting to receive one).
Even if there's little to report I'm disappointed that Prusa is mostly leaving its customers in the dark. In this scenario silence definitely isn't golden and it would be helpful to know if any of the vouchers that MK3 owners elected to receive (in order to allow them the opportunity to purchase a Powder Coated PEI Steel Sheet) have been sent out and received.
Has anybody received their voucher and used it to purchase a fabled Powder Coated PEI Steel Sheet yet? Or can anybody go one better and confirm that, having used their voucher, they've actually received their P.C. PEI Sheet?!
Personally I'm yet to receive the voucher that I chose in mid December last year. I know the email suggested it could take a while to fulfil orders but it would still be nice to receive updates, and I've not received any information or heard any positive news at all.
It would be good if Prusa Research could offer some transparency on the subject and keep its customers informed of the current situation (weekly yield compared to number of purchase requests etc) and possibly even each customer's position on the waiting list. A video tour or preview of the Powder Coating facility showing the manufacturing process and detailing why so many fail would be of great interest too and may well make customers feel better considered by, and more sympathetic for, Prusa as well.
I'm still waiting for the voucher even, having purchased my MK3 over a year ago. I feel Prusa Research has really dropped the ball with this one and it'd be great to know more about what's really going on.
Ordered my MK3 on the 10/30/2017 and got it on the 01/30/2018 and got voucher email on the 14/12/2018 and received PEI steel sheet 2 weeks ago...
