another update overnight. if the free hosting site is as slow as it was for me, don't be too worried about the pics - it's just the unassembled 3D printer. agreed. some people seem to think they are ordering a product. that's not what is happening, what they are doing is crowdfunding the development of one. that said - it would definitely be better if the design, manufacturing and contracting were nailed down before a campaign got opened up in the first place. a few of my recent and current campaigns are going through the same pattern... the promoter seems to have gone into the campaign with a nice idea, but expects to do a lot of the process once they have funds to do so. that increases the risk of the project not succeeding if the expectations are unfulfillable, and frustrates people in the meantime. yeah, I'm getting spammed too. but bills beckon.
