Signul Updates – CNC Prototyping

Hey everyone – fast and furious over here!

We’ve rounded the corner into focusing on our plastics and prep work for the SIGNUL form factor. The goal is to make a high quality, durable case for SIGNUL beacons that doesn’t cost an excessive amount to produce. As we expected, there are challenges and compromises to be made, but things are progressing nicely.

The shot above is our “Shopbot CAM” which we’ve got trained on our CNC machine which is being used to develop functioning prototypes of the enclosures. For those of you that selected the proof enclosures as an Indiegogo perk – they’re coming! On track for Jan 2015.

3D printing of the early perks is also still progressing. We’ve been challenging our Flash Forge’s and Makerbots to produce, and they have been cranking away on beacon enclosures at least 12 hours a day. The next batch will be shipping next week, so keep an eye on your mailbox!
