Official Blog UpdateMarch 4, 2009
Evil Dragon has updated the official blog with more information about the prototype cases. They should be finished by friday, to be sent off for CE testing.
Well, all the errors of the case files have been fixed – and the final prototype cases are now in production!
They will be finished and shipped out on Friday, huzzah!
After that happened, we need to do stability and CE tests as quickly as possible, and if everything is fine, the moulds will be produced.
The production of the moulds will take about 30 – 35 days, however, once they are finished, the company can produce 50.000 units a day… should be enough for us. The good thing is, that the company that produces the moulds and the case is exactly the same company that made the prototype cases, so we won’t have any file export errors this time.
More after the break!
The last pieces missing for the board productions have also been shipped and are on their way. This means that everything should be ready for the mass production of the boards. If everything goes well, we can start producing the boards shortly before the cases are finished so we can begin to ship early / middle of April!
Oh, I (EvilDragon) am at the Olymptronica this weekend – with Pandora devboard as well as with a WIZ prototype. So, if you want to come over and have a little chat or test some stuff on the prototypes, you’re welcome. I hoped I could take the case with me, but as the show starts one day after the cases are finished, there’s no chance getting one to me in time.
