Let us see what the announced XL brother will be capable for those who want to print large stuff with 0.6 nozzle within large materials range.

Yes - it is time for the XL - need it for building my molds for building fire resistante stuff from concrete for melting glass and so on. With the MK2 it is possible but you have to split the molds into several parts and that makes it complex.

Best regards, Clemens Mödlin

so how many Oct 13 orders got shipped by the 31st Jan?

my colleague ordered 1 hour before me on the 13th and his shipped Thursday morning.. but mine still not.

i know Prusas objective was to get all Oct 13 orders out by the 31st Jan so was mine just a one off or did they miss this target on mass?

As a 14th orderer I have to say I'm not angry that Prusa has not delivered yet but dissapointed about the wait and that I have to search any information about the delay myself. A better move it would have been if I got at least an email why its not already on its way and when to expect it.

After all, its been paid for since I ordered it and after the order confirmation its been silence.

I am fine with the wait.. I am a happy MK3 owner and am in no hurry for my Mini.. I am glad I wasn't in the first batch and will get one with the teathing problems fixed.

 

But I am not sure what I am ment to do now.. The last update from Prusa said that Oct 13 orders would be shipped by the 31st.. And this was true for my colleague who literally ordered less than an hour before me.. His was shipped early on the 30th.. Same country.. Same town.. Same model.. So I was pretty sure mine would ship straight after.

But nothing has happened and either I have been overlooked (possible as I did upgrade to the Filament Sensor after my order was placed, so perhaps this affected my position in the queue).. Or perhaps they didn't get as many of the 13th orders out as they thought they would.

 

I guess I need to ask them and found out..

I ordered the 13th and have not received shipping notification yet. Order # 42246. It looks like I'm one of the last orders of the 13th on the table so thats probably why. This is my first printer so I'm super excited to get it.

It seems Type A Machines (aka TAM) shut up shop in 2018. It's tricky trying to balance low end prices with high-end features, and I think they didn't manage that.

No idea day by day, but I can tell you that from 13 Oct - 39 have shipped with 25 already have been delivered.  34 total are pending shipment are were nto updated by the buyer.  It does not appear that any have shipped from the 14th.

I will be one of the first in line for the XL.  I have a huge need for a reliable larger printer.

I found an article about the company and its collapse: https://3dprint.com/205217/untold-story-of-type-a-machines/

Assuming that all the orders from the 12th have actually been shipped, and there are 9% who do not update the spreadsheet, then there are about 37% of the orders from the 13th still to be shipped. It seems that PR have slipped behind schedule a bit.

Me too . This will be my first 3D printer and Im super excited to start using it and learning all about printing. I am the first order on the 14th so my order is just after yours. 

 

I contacted support and they were useless. He gave me the link for to look at the shipping dates and when I told him my order had passed as it was supposed to ship Jan 29th and that already gone, then he said the shipping will get updated eventually he said. 

So just have to hope starting Monday they ship a ton of printers 🙂

I check my email 1000 times a day hoping for the shipment email!

I would not read into the ones from the 12th.  The MK3 sheet has a small portion that could have been as high as 10 percent that did not update the spreadsheet after adding their order.  Some cancel and do nto remove their order.

Being your first printer I recomend to read as much as possible on the mk3 forum  especially the first layer calibration and how to clean the sheet.  This is printer branch independent and is mostly a subject of newcommers frustration. As much as you learn on the other's mistakes, you will have less non sleapy nights.

even an old man can learn new things 🙂

Exactly, I'm assuming that all those orders have shipped, and that about 10% of the orders people didn't update.

I am doing maintenance today on several printers.  Mostly the ender.  I am also getting ready ready for the ender.  To enclose or not?
