We are waiting very impatiently this morning for UPS to deliver the aluminum boats for our Vessel case from our sheet metal fabricator! The past week has been spent creating sets of silicone molds and perfecting the pigment mix ratios for the cast rubber feet and bumpers. We retrieved our first box of Shapechanger modules from Darkplace Manufacturing yesterday and will be able to get at least the first half of the preorders shipped this week. War Of The Ants is on the SMT assembly machines and hopefully complete units will be coming off the production line by the end of the week. We are currently celebrating the end of the first half of 2017, and the successful wrap-up of multiple projects, and planning the next year of development this week as well. ... See MoreSee Less

Tommy D PrinzNow I'm not a professional but there seems to be very few if any Doritos eating noises, no visible beer, a complete lack of profanity, mumbling or random scat solos and no magic blue smoke. Do these people know what they're doing?
3D stereolithography printed mold boxes arrived this morning as well as some laser-cut MDF for 2 jigs that will each hold a full set of rubber cast items (2 side bumpers and 4 feet) for the Vessel case. Our next step is to coat the 3D prints with a gloss epoxy coat, let that cure, and then cast some test molds out of silicone. Our huge order of casting rubber, moldmaking silicone and tints/pigments arrives next Tuesday, and we want to be all ready to start casting!! ... See MoreSee Less
