We have some exciting news for this update. Kits are available again!
When we realized we needed to take a break from shipping kits the community sprung into action, and several groups sprung into action and pledged to start offering kits. Since the last update Maker Made became the first group to offer kits for sale. Their first batch which ships next month sold out very quickly, but they still have a few left for the next batch. Check out their website at https://www.makermadecnc.com/ for the latest information.
Initially Maker Made will be offering a kit identical to the last batch Maslow shipped, however they are already taking an active role in the community and have begun enlisting beta testers from the forums to see how they can improve the design. We have put them in touch with the manufacturers we used and so the kits should be nearly identical with many parts made with the original Maslow tooling. They have also taken over the awarding of prizes for the project of the week contest. What a way to make a good first impression!
Don't forget to keep an eye on the Community Garden Market for all things Maslow related for sale by the community!
What's new at Maslow?
Things are really starting to quiet down for us which has been wonderful for us. It feels great to take a step back from the stress of running the business side of things, while at the same time see the community pushing that side of the project forwards. We've packed up and moved out of our warehouse space and we dealing with all of the paperwork side of things now. Overall we've been feeling good.
There have been a slew of amazing news projects since the last update. Because we've slowed down the update schedule I can't post every project, but here are a few of my favorites!
