We Have Suspended Taking More Orders Until We Are Caught Up!


BETA PROGRAM AHEAD!!!

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AND THOROUGHLY!!!


OK so here's how the whole beta program is going to work for the R.P.M. (Revolution Prototyping Mill) (note the Revolution and Revolution XL dedicated 3D printers are using a DIFFERENT method for preorders)...

We will be posting as much video and pictures as we can as time goes on, we have already begun ordering for production. There may be some very small changes along the way...please bear with us!

 

 

By placing a pre-order for the beta program you are agreeing to pay 100% of the cost up front.  If at any time you want to cancel your order you will be issued a 100% refund and you will loseyour place in the queue.

Challenges and Weak Spots

The open-source software that is currently available for the milling side of things with the RPM is a bit lacking. We have MasterCAM at our shop and have been testing some open-source as well as commercial software packages. We are also in talks with a RepRap famous developer for a REAL software package for our machine, but as of right now the software end of MILLING IS EXPERIMENTAL! The 3D printing side of things is well sorted and obviously there are many options that work well including Marlin w/ Pronterface and Repetier.

The BOLT ON UPGRADE that will include the remotely mountable electronics panel and immersive flood cooling setup is NOT ready, yet but may be before the end of the beta program. Milling operations may have to be run dry or with manual cooling methods at least initially in the beta program.
