    Keep them coming! Any chance #25 is among them? If not will it be shipped this week?

    Looks like it's ramping up nicely! Is that another 10 out the door today?

    I am getting so anxious to get mine. I have about 1/4 spool of 3mm filament left for my K8200 then that's it. I planned to run out at about the right time thinking my BigBox would be here around Christmas or early January. Looks like I'm going to be printerless for a month or more though because I have a pretty high number.

    I still have a spool of woodfill and half a spool of bronzefil to get through.... But I have a high number as well so think I'll have enough time to work through it!

    That's why christmas is repeated annually. And it's the celebration of hope and joy.

    Merry Christmas

    Why would he? I'd rip that box open and start building right now!

    Hah thanks Clare and the guys! Was fantastic to see the factory and the print farm this morning. Seeing them all start off in sync was pretty magical. When I'm back home on the 27th I'll get pics, videos and maybe some streaming on the go :)

    My son is getting my K8200 an has given explicit instructions to not do any more printing so that he can make use of my stock of 3mm! As backer #499 there might not be much left!

    Well, that's interesting...

    At least you know it's on the way. Olivia and Mike are beta testing the build instructions for us all so it should be smooth sailing by the time we get ours. :D

    I'll kinda miss the K8200, it has flaws, only some of which I managed to address but despite it's crudeness in some areas (and the shonky quality of some of the original kit bits) I must say once dialled in and fettled with, it has been reliable and consistent for me.

    I might have even gone for a k8400 had Vellman's UK spares and support been better and had it been truly open-source, although I am not convinced it is much of an upgrade over the k8200 in many regards (and it still has z axis problems and still uses "that" hotend design)

    I agree with all points and my K8200 has completed some mammoth projects with excellent repeatability, so the BB will certainly be put to the test.
