Merry belated birthday Tyme;) I too am in the I can wait camp. Truth is, even if it comes out today, I probably won't get a lot of time with it anyway so I'd rather it be done right as opposed to rushed out.

@DJ don't stress and don't rush. Any gamer out there is more than used to delayed release dates. I think it's now a mandatory part of being a video game company anymore. lol

I spent some time in Los Angeles in 98-99 and the town's anthem seemed to be "Everything is due 2 weeks ago on Tuesday." And that philosophy was shared from Universal studios to Kinkos. Now I'm not saying take two weeks but I thinks most of us care about the end results, not the time the results are delivered.

Speaking of time, this grass isn't going to cut itself.
Thanks everyone:) here's an update...

The makerbot is toast. They'll be sending me replacement parts. This means the first release of revolution will not contain as many peices as planned. They can be updated by us via the online library over the next while - so no huge biggy.

There are some tests and last minute updates we started while waiting for the makerbot replicator 2 to start working. We will finish those changes today and release this evening:) or worst case scenario tomorrow.

Tutorial videos will be filmed this week with step by step usage information.

I'm super excited:D

Makerbot again!.. That's them off my list of possible printers (which they were barely on anyway).

Probably wont be until tomorrow for me then since it's 8:10pm here and I need an early night, so probably a good thing as I know I'll be wanting to play with it until the early hours.

Any chance of the custom 3d items dimensions, rules, etc. and maybe even the stl for the ez-clip? (Only if time permits, I can wait for those too since I'll be sleeping in 3 hours) Am I jumping the gun a little?
Awesome can't wait for the release this evening! To bad about the makerbot. For anyone interested in a 3D printer I recommend the Ultimaker.

Thanks for the update DJ, I am super excited as well to see all the new stuff in the coming weeks.
Thanks for the update DJ hope to see it soon and other items you going to put on your website to sell.
I hear a lot of bad news about makerbot ,just trash it and get another one.
What about the kinect, all everyone talks about is the 3D printer?
@tymtravler happy birthday my friend,hope you have a great party.
@DJ you still have the cube 3D printer to use right?
It looks like DJ has the CubeX printer from 3D systems. $3k + is the price. It's a great printer is you can afford its cost and pricey upkeep with CubeX Cartridges. It's much better than the Cube but also 2x as much
@JStarne1, yah we have the CubeX also.. But we need to verify parts with multiple printers to ensure compatibility. I think the parts that we have done now are enough for now. We will add more in the upcoming weeks - and hopefully see a lot more parts added by the community:D

I've finished most of the last bit of updates and bug fixes... She's ready for rollout tomorrow!

I'm going to go home now. Tomorrow morning i'll give the software a quick test before we release it to you eager folk:D

Perfect, well depending on what time in the morning, that should be just as I get home from work:) its already tomorrow here...
I accidentally deleted the database and website tonight! Thabk goodness for backups:)

It'll probably be later in the afternoon. I have some errands to run. Then a few ez-bits to add to revolutions online database. Then... She's ready for the world;)

Let the revolution begin!

Don't forget to sleep, I thought I was bad but I bet you can rival my 3 hours sleep every 24 hours (or so).:D
Oh man, I can't go that long! If I don't have at least 7 hours... i'm a zombie. I work until my brain gives out and I delete databases - then I go to sleep:)
Good night sweetheart well it's time to go. Bum bum bum bum bum. Good night sweetheart well it's time to go. Bum bum bum bum we hate to leave you but really must say, good night sweetheart good night.
Did i hear that right DJ you deleted the website thats not good LOL
