    @Greg Holloway is there a schedule when to release the BigBox files to the public finally?

    In some of the discussion I really want to post some screens or animations taken from the CAD files or from the assemblies I created in SolidWorks based on exports from 123D or some altered parts like I did for my hotend swapping solution using no zip ties anymore but velcro strips.

    But I do not want to step ahead and post something which isn't officially released so I did this all in private for the moment.

    Or can you say that it is ok for you that I do at least post screens to make some things a bit clearer? Hard to describe everything by words, for me a non-native english speaker even more and I was not yet so into engineering vocabulary that I know all the words...

    When the last KS kit ships we'll release the files. We are down to 30 kits to ship as of this morning.

    You're fine to post images and animations, that's no problem. You can even go so far as to publish the odd modified part for other BigBox owners to use.

    Really all we want to avoid in the release of the full set of BigBox plans to the public before we have fulfilled our promise to all the Kickstarter Backers.
