Hi 626Pilot,

Yes, we are pumping the message as much as we can, but we are already being accused of spamming at some places, so we have to proceed carefully.
Last thing I want to do is antagonize people.

I think you are right, we need to schedule another one for the US. It is hard to span 3 main time zones and find a spot that works for all of us. What would be a good time to pick, for the US? In the evening I suppose?

As to what happens if we don't make it on Kickstarter. Difficult to say really. There are a few parts that simply HAVE to be injection molded. The gears. That drags along the hobbed wheel, as it is an insert that is molded in. That becomes an expensive set. Also, if we don't make it, is there really a market? We tried to cover the market as much as possible. Hard choices.

Lets just work towards reaching the goal first. If we get there, no worries.

I'd go for 6PM Eastern/9PM Pacific. Best chance to hit the most people. If the campaign fails and you do a second try in the future, give yourself more than a month.

Do you mean 9pm eastern/6pm pacific? Or did you mean 2 sessions, one at each of those times?

9PM Eastern is OK.
4AM for me, but it's important, so no issue.

Especially for all our friends in the USA, we are running another live event, for a show and tell on the Nimble. We certainly hope you can join us.

Did you know there is a whole other country in that time zone? To bad you didn't include CANADA! There are a lot of Canadians that use 3D printers too. I know we can watch too but if you are not invited to the party, why go?

There are several other countries in that timezone, but who cares about Panama, Columbia, Ecuador and Peru? :P :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

The Kickstarter is only halfway funded, and is almost over. The only way for you to get enough traction at this point would be to get a bunch of 3DP magazines and blogs to do a story, and hope for the best.

If that doesn't pan out, I would wait until next year, do a Kickstarter with a length of at least two months, wait for a few thousand monetary units to flow in, and then shop it around to the 3DP press. Shop it around to general tech outfits as well, like Gizmodo.

Maybe speak with a few reviewers and gain some outside opinion. I know it is not easy, but I am sure a few of the Youtube review guys would be interested at taking a look. Just don't try to buy a good review, almost never works.

Pretty sure joe was just joking around, I know I was, hence the :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: . They singled out the US when they gave the time.

Good writeup. I didn't find a rostock max in the adapters list though. It looks like they have a V3 "hat" adapter on thingiverse but nothing for the V2. Has anyone made one? Also, there are several cable length options when you go to purchase. I'm assuming 95mm would be appropriate but it's not too clear. Lykle, I'd recommend putting a note on the buy page about the length. Not knowing the correct length for my printer keeps people like me from insta-buying. Overall I'm very excited about this product and I'm going to buy it when I find out the correct length needed for a V2 rostock Max.

Glad to hear about it again after some (explained) period of silence!
I assume that the price-up of 12% at the same day as this nice review is a coincidence? ;-)
I am really struggling with stringing and I do not seem to get it right. So might be my next bigger upgrade.

Do I understand correctly that the gear ratio (30-1) is so high that the stepper cannot keep up the speed?
Why is this ratio that large?
I am DeltaCon, I have a delta, my name is Con, I am definitely PRO delta! ;-)

Is the 95cm cable length appropriate for the Max V3?
