    Hi, I live in the US and I am not a backer. However I was looking at ordering a big box through your website soon. If I ordered today, what is the expected wait time. Also are there any customs or import fees I should be aware of or is the price at check out the final price?

    Lastly, I probably won't be able to watch the live feed. Will it be on youtube or something later?

    Three questions
    1) with the failures in the glass that Richard had, what are you recommending (in terms of spare glass beds, or suggesting glue/tape)

    2) I approve of your problem solving even with the delays we've had, but is there no way we can get the Simplify3D software early or does it have to wait until the printer is sent.

    3) There is a kit on your website for Dual Upgrade.
    Mine is a fully assembled BigBox.
    If I order this kit, does it give everything I need to make the upgrade to dual myself at a later point in time or are there other components needed.

    Looking forward to building something! Outside of the main thrust of the update some little ancillaries that keep coming back ;-)

    1) Any interest or plans to stock PEI film or sheet? (relating to glass / PET issue) It seems there's at least one credible US supplier (as posted on google) and possibilities in China.

    2) Verdict on Astrosyn dampeners with BB? If a thumbs up, since Astrosyn don't sell in quantities for individual boxes, will you bulk buy or should we organise amongst ourselves?

    3) More information on Edge? Timescale? Colours? Spool sizes? Pricing? Has anyone looked into Vapour Smoothing? Rumour has it PETG will respond to methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) and dichloroethane (latter sounds a bit volatile but...).

    4) Aside of the PET/fracture issue, some people have been finding the glass scratches "easily" (compared to what I don't know?). Do you not use putty knives on the print farm? Any tips on how not to scratch, or what to expect from a glass bed? Should one print in different corners of the bed to wear it out evenly?!

    Question 1: Are you addressing anything else besides the rods and nuts?
    Question 2: Some have expressed a concern as to the shaving of the rods...given that 15 or 20 micron is anywhere from 1/5 to 1/4 the diameter of human hair would you not say that's more akin to a good polishing than it is to grinding and shaving?
    Question 3: Would you suggest using a Kapton or PEI film directly on the glass bed for protection against chipping and, if so, what would be your recommendation on how Kapton and PEI could or should be used.
    Question 4: I have missed in any of live streams as to whether or not we have, included in our kits, any samples of Proto-pasta filaments. Are any included?
    Question 5. Can you give us novices a simple way of adding lighting to the BB?

    What would you consider to be essential spares? To avoid downtime - when we get up!

    Can you tell us more about Material X? How it compares to Edge? If it will be released?
