    Hello backers,
    We just wanted to give a small update on what is join on here at RoBo 3D.
    The shipment of 500 ASSEMBLED printers from overseas should be getting in at the end of the week or beginning of next week! Once this comes in we will be doing a quick QC, slapping labels on them and shipping them your way!
    We have a little over 300 printers shipped from our warehouse here in San Diego, California, and we've been pushing ourselves to get these out to you.
    We believe that you all will be happy with the printer and thank you again for your continued support.
    There will be another update once the shipment comes in to let you all know it's here safe and sound.
    Thanks again,
    RoBo 3D Team

    The ABS were held up waiting for the Boro Glass to come in. I am also ABS assembled but the news is looking good for them to arrive soon.

    They're definitely shipping from April ABS Assembled as I got mine from that batch recently - if you're in that batch, I'm sure you'll get yours soon! :)

    Wow, April printers are now just going out? I Ordered mine at the end of June and told I'd get mine at the end of September. I'm still waiting and now I hear April shippments are going out.

    I sure hope I get mine before Christmas o at least before I lose complete interest in this hobby.

    Don't worry Spector, i believe this shipment covers all of Kickstarter orders and some of the site orders aswell,
    and since there is an assembly facility now, things will be much faster.
    the delay was due negotiations and setting manufacturing standards for the first time.

    i'm hoping i'm one of the first to get my printer from this batch (April backer) :)

    keep up the great work, hope all goes well

    I can't see that there's any sort of rhyme or reason to the order these are shipping out in. I'm in the March tier with an ABS upgrade and I still haven't heard so much as a peep about when I might expect to be seeing a printer. Then I see that backers from later tiers have apparently already gotten their printers or had them shipped. Near as I can tell what tier you landed in means very little...

    I'm a kickstart backer I had them tell me what number I am and I'm number 889 and was apart of the June ABS. Looks like I might miss out on this batch :(
