  Just a quick look at the new clamping systems on the Axiom CNC and the Romaxx running side by side.

1/1 Master Beta Screen Available...
over 2 years ago – Fri, Apr 14, 2017 at 08:54:55 PM

I'm almost done buying wood for this campaign and rounding up all the tooling needed.

I'm converting programs from one CNC system to another and finalizing plans on how to deliver these screens to you...

In the mean time as part of this process I just finished my review and notes on my beta system I used in this campaign...

I've gotten all i need from it and have put it up for sale as an as-is beta product in my etsy.com store here:

https://www.etsy.com/listing/511154046/dice-base-master-screen-11-full-beta?ref=shop_home_active_2 

This is available to the general public and as its both not 100% complete or the final versions of the included components and as there's only 1 set like this its being made available for anyone who wants to finish off the customization of the system themselves (details in listing) or wants another set for a near and dear Gamemaster or friend who might have missed out.

I'll be listing the older prototype versions in the next few days so other revisions will show up... each less finiished and earlier in the development process than the last.

Current listing... this is the beta of the system I'm making for each of you.

The alpha  system... this is the first real view of what the final product would be... even rougher than the beta.

Pre-Alpha - this is the beginning notes for the design work.

3rd trial piece... no where near alpha... but still interesting and usefull in the right setup.

At any rate, these are pieces I did before and during the campaign, no work has started yet on production pieces and no production pieces will be sold till all of you have yours.

Thanks again everyone!

 A quick video of the new machine in action.

Its faster, more accurate and easier to use than my Romaxx... which is not to knock the Romaxx.. .its made more than 2000 parts without a serious problem...so... here's hoping this new machine is even better.

Thanks for your support everyone.

You've all  made this possible.

Welcome to April!
over 2 years ago – Sun, Apr 02, 2017 at 09:17:28 PM

Only four holdouts remain:

  • Andrew Franke
  • Daniel
  • Dracopticon
  • Jen Edwards

Pledge Canceled

One backer has contested their Kickstarter payment after answering their survey and Kickstarter has removed their pledge funds from my account and informed me I no longer have any obligation to this backer.. so... Ok then. No previous contact from either the backer or Kickstarter, but the money has been removed.. so that's that. Backer, you know who you are, you're money is back with you, and you're off the to-do list. Sorry I didn't get a chance to talk with you directly first, but there you go.

For everyone else!

Now that those things are out of the way here's what's going on.

1. The new Axiom CNC arrives next Tuesday. Setup will take place Tuesday - Thursday with all needed adjustments and settings being looked at for production.

2. After the machine is setup I'll began writing the production programs for all your wonderful panels. 1-2 weeks.

3. Towards the end of April production begins. 

I'm on the fence as to how to handle production, I can make all the rewards and then ship them all at the same time, or I can make each order completely and ship it out as its finished...

Any thoughts on this?

In the mean time I've installed a new BandSaw and Cyclone Dust collector from Laguna Tools... Both of which were very much needed.

Impossible to re-cut without a bandsaw and there's no price worth bad air quality... 

 

 

 I'll have some more pictures of the new CNC an some live running video as well when we get going.

Thanks to all of you for your patience and support.

Four little piggies went to market...
over 2 years ago – Mon, Mar 20, 2017 at 12:54:44 AM

Or was it three... I can never remember.

What i  do know is that there are now only FOUR (4) remaining hold-outs.

I want to provide you with exactly what you want... but you have to tell me what that is.

I'll check back beginning of April and see where we're at then.
