Re: New hardware coming soon...

Hi, today the 3d-printed cases arrived...

they where very well packed and have a great (very fine) resolution, but sadly all of them are badly warped and the material is too "wobbly" and bendable for my purpose. A great part of this is my fault, as the walls of my modell are a bit "out of spec" and they did warn me about "thin walls" in my modell, but i asked them to produce them anyway... :0) (mea culpa :0))

So will only offer the black or orange cases i print myself on my humble 3d printer (which are much stronger and more stable)

Today also the new PCBs should be delivered... (holding my breath and crossing my fingers ;0))

Cheers, TOM:0)

A small wrong step won't stop you from getting to the goal line :)
Similar issue happened to me with the first batch of Multicart cases (moulded not printed), that arrived almost all warped because they fucked up the moulding process and thought I would have been happy with them. I called their BS and they sent a new perfect batch, which is what we used for the release :)

Unfortunately I will not order it because I am disposing, little by little, of all my collection of CreatiVision stuff.
But if I was still into playing with the unit, I would definitely buy it!
Tom, dont forget to send me all info, photos etc so I can create a page similar to:
