Maybe they're reprinting all the printed parts, to update them to new ones?
I noticed this. Even with their revised numbers, if they keep up, I think they will be behind schedule again by tuesday.
The apparent delay I'm refering to is the fact they were 3-4 days ahead, and within 14 days, 3-4 days behind.
It sounds like the Filament sensor is making progress, but slowly. I'm personally thinking it might have issues with certain filament types/colors, due to it being optical.sean.r7 wrote: ↑Thu Feb 15, 2018 8:31 pmYeah, I was joking about the Orange filament!
Considering what I have read about the filament sensor I am hoping they decided to update the parts and that this sudden lull in shipping is them retooling.
I'm disappointed with the time to ship especially after reading some of the issues that users are having with their printers. I placed my order on the assumption that the MK3 would produce prints of at least the same quality as the MK2s if not better.
The other thing I'm concerned about is that linear advance still hasn't been switched back on. It's been a few weeks now and you would think that the issues with it would have been worked out. Worst case the printer just never runs as fast as Prusa was hoping to achieve I suppose.
Ultimately I would have no issue with the wait at all but I got charged up front so it sure does feel like I'm providing free financing to Joe's Company here while I sit and watch a spreadsheet with tracking dates on it waiting for a printer that may have issues out of the box... I still want the printer. Just don't want to be disappointed and I especially don't want to regret my decision to buy it.
Been staring at the Peopoly SLA printer for several days now wondering.
