As I said before; At this price, I decided couldn't lose much if I anted-up...
the proof will come in what is (or is not) delivered early next year.

I have been fully scammed on Kickstarter previously, by the UK guy who was going to do a 3D print model of the Fenistog.
As a result of similar bad behavior... Kickstarter DID tighten their rules on non-performance.
Like ANY startup project... these are a speculative 'investment' (not yet a purchase), subject to loss.

That said... ONO has sent me 29 update/progress messages...
not generally the behavior of someone who is taking the money to Phuket on holiday!

Either way I'm keeping an eye on this. Even if it's not that great, for $99 it can be very useful for rough prototypes.

Exactly...
At 1/20th the price of a Form1+... if it has more that 1/20th of the functionality, I will be satisfied.

I have a Tiko on the way, due to arrive tomorrow.
It was a $179.00 Kickstarter project.
Given the price i am not expecting too much from it.
It will be good enough to futz around.

There are limits to my time and patience. I'm going for a bona fide CNC machine.

Sounds good but, Lathe? Mill? 3D Printer? Laser?

Milling.

That one has fast enough spindle speed to cut metal.

I don't know what SLP is; what do you think of Roland SRM-20. It has somewhat larger working area but still quite compact: https://www.rolanddga.com/products/3d/s ... ifications. Sadly it probably can't be used for cutting metal, so a lot of people wouldn't take it seriously but I'm mainly interested in making low volume resin molds. I wonder what the runout is (apparently unpublished)

Actually you don't want high spindle speeds. High spindle speeds are used with high fate rates for fast milling.

From looking at the specs it's close in size to my Sherline CNC Mill but much fancier looking. From what I read and what the video shows this machine was specifically design for the materials it cuts. It's a machine designed for prototyping ideas. This spec, Mechanical Resolution 0.0000393 inches/step, 0.000998594 mm/step, tells me the spindle runout is probably very high precision. Something I wouldn't worry about in making resin molds.

If I had the bucks I would go for this machine.
