Nailbot Beta Builds
Dear Republic Backers,
It’s been a busy summer for Preemadonna as we completed our Nailbot Beta Build 1 and started deploying those units into the field. Over the next few weeks, you may see videos or posts of interns or beta testers using these units and providing feedback. We are excited - this is a big step for our company!
The beta builds had a strict compliance procedure for to pass, giving us confidence in our Nailbot design, and our ability to ship Nailbots in the coming months. This procedure included:
- Efficient Assembly & 300 Cycle Tests
- Beta Function Tests
- Quality and Reliability Printing Tests
- Beta Unit Shipment Performance Tests
Our team is currently working through additional Beta Nailbot Life tests to evaluate long term performance. We expect to report back on the results for the following tests in our next update:
Final Testing on Cartridge Life
Evaluating Mechanical Deterioration after 5,000 prints
Vetting Service Station during and after 5,000 prints
Approving Print Quality
Monitoring Cartridge Corner Cases caused by Idling and Overnight Scenario
We have also been working with our long term contract manufacturer as we transition into the next phase of Nailbot builds. Our CM also has received a Nailbot sample to prep the build teams for transition.
Given the results of Beta Build 1, we are preparing to release additional tooling required for our next phase of builds. This is exciting for everyone involved with Preemadonna - our team and our backers - we can move and scale quickly with this design freeze.
We humbly ask for your patience as we finalize plans for our next chapter before sending you the link to receive your bonus perk. Thank you for your support as we enter the next chapter of Nailbot manufacturing, shipping and deployment. We are close!
Pree and team
