Check your unopened kits, Community Sourced kits on the way, & Projects! The September 19th Update

Hi everyone!

We’ve had a successful past couple of weeks shipping out our final orders for complete Maslow kits. We are now starting the process of winding down the business side of things. In this week’s update we’ve got a few logistical updates as well as some more amazing projects, of course!

We’ve shipped all remaining orders - please check them!

We have shipped all of our remaining orders and most have arrived by now. If you were expecting to receive a Maslow kit and haven’t yet, please be in touch! We want to be sure to tie up all loose ends and potentially missing kits as quickly as possible. If you’ve received a kit but have yet to open it, please do us the favor of opening it and inventorying the items. We want to be able to send any potential missing parts out by the end of October, so please check your kits as soon as possible.

Community Sourced Kits are on the way

We still anticipate that community-sourced kits will come available in the next couple of months. Once we are made aware of other sources of the complete kit we will definitely share this source via our website. If you are interested in purchasing a community-sourced kit, please keep up with our website, specifically the “Store” tab, as that is where we’ll be posting a link to complete kits. We will also post a link in the newsletter as soon as we have one.

Community Garden Market is working well

The community market we mentioned in the last newsletter has been working well, creating a space for the community to list items for sale.

We’re out of router bits!

Unfortunately since we have sold out of router bits we are no longer able to offer free router bits to the Project of the Week winner nor the Community Gardener of the week. Sorry about that! We hope everyone will continue to post for the win so they can have the glory!

Projects

As usual we’ve got an amazing batch of projects to show off from the forums for this newsletter.

To start things off we’ve got this incredible PC case build from the YouTube channel simon_makes which took home the community “Project of the week” award this past week.

Here are some photos showing off the different color lights inside

You can watch the second part of the build process here:

Awsmith used his Maslow to help some Econ students out with starting a business for a class project. They made skateboards, demonstrating how Maslow can be used to introduce a new generation to the positiblites of digital manufacturing. Very cool!
