    Hey!
    @Shai:
    When you will ship the new effector, can you notify me before? I think for me it would be nice to save some shipping costs to germany, if I could add some spare parts I'd like to order aswell...
    Do you also have any updates on ne manufaction of the new parts?

    As mentioned before, we will notify everyone once it becomes available for order. Until then, we're still manufacturing it.

    Just an update that we'll have to push back the upgrade another 2-3 weeks as we're still manufacturing it.

    Super stoked to share that we just got pictures from our supplier! We will have a few samples on hand soon to test them out. So far they look great from the pictures *fingers crossed*

    The Hotend and arms are already finished production. We will be receiving samples Thursday to confirm they are good before they're shipped to us.

    2nd round of plastic parts will be shipped to us tomorrow after they adjusted a few minor things to the mould. Plastic parts take about 1-3 days to produce, pack and ship.

    Everything will arrive by end of this month.

    Just another update -

    We're still trying to source a supplier for the steel balls that are used in the pivot joints. We received samples today, but they did not pass our quality control. So we're going to be ordering a few more samples from various suppliers.

    I apologize for the delay, but we want to make sure that when we're ready to ship the upgrade, it works exactly as expected. All the other parts are on schedule to arrive within 1-2 weeks.

    This is really cool and is definitely putting my faith BACK into the Delta team! Thanks, @Shai!

    Using the above links, when should we start following these guidelines to get the ball rolling on this?

    We'll announce it once we're ready to start shipping. We finished production on all the parts except the steel balls. It's proving a bit harder than we originally anticipated to find a reliable supplier that can make the steel balls within 0.005 mm diameter tolerance, which is no easy feat. But we will find a supplier soon. A few more samples are on the way.

    Small increment update - all the parts are on the way to us right now except the steel balls. A few samples will be made this week from various suppliers for us to inspect and hopefully we will then place an order for it.

    Is there an update coming today? =)

    Also... was thinking about the tear down process, them mailing in the parts... Is it a problem to wait till June 10 for the update? Figure if I can keep the printer running till school is out, it is cooler than having it down for a week or so....

    We'll push the deadline forward for the upgrade mail-in. Today we're receiving the hotend parts and arms. The only thing left as mentioned before is the steel balls. A few more samples have been shipped to us to test out. The balls have to be really high precision otherwise they will shake inside of the plastic sockets, so that is why it's taking so long for us to find a supplier who can do it. But we are finalizing a decision soon to start production.
