Thank you for the extremely authentic and honest email @dan . It was truly heartfelt and detailed and very honest. I am more than happy to continue this journey with you. I really believe in what you and your team have created and are refining here, and a delay is fully understandable. Waiting a few more months is really nothing in the grand scheme of things – it is such a First World sort of problem and absolutely nothing in comparison to truly challenging situations like Standing Rock, the earthquake in New Zealand, etc.
It’s all good as far as I am concerned – it makes that sweet sense of anticipation and excitement that I have been feeling since I first discovered and ordered the GF that much greater. I have an incredible sense of faith and confidence in you and your team and this amazing tool you are making. I waited 2-3 years before I felt 3D printing was where I wanted it to be and I got my first one, and had to learn how to take that one apart and repair it on the fly – and I still loved it. This has a similar feeling of anticipation…and Gee whiz…I work in Seattle for an agency that measures projects in the billions and takes years to complete. Projects taking time is nothing new to me
I will eagerly await August, and enjoy watching all the developments and the news in the forums as you continue to create the amazing Glowforge. Wishing the very best to you and your team – I imagine you are going to get a little beat up over this in the immediate future, but I wanted to let you know that I for one am OK with this and remain a dedicated and enthusiastic buyer – just gives me a bit more time to work out the workspace for it along with my sculpting area, my 3D printers, etc.
