Update:

Well, things are really at a standstill in terms of what I can do outside of my computer.

For what it's worth, here's what I've done on my own to make sure the production models come out as fast as possible once I have the equipment set up in the new facility.

*Modified the draft angles to make sure the parts don't warp on exit.
     -For anyone that doesn't know, injection molded parts have to have what's called a "draft angle." The wall edges can't be 90 degrees to the mold base or they create a vacuum as you try to extract them. So the walls have to be at an angle to allow the part to be extracted. This is not a big deal for cheap internal parts, but for something like a case, the draft angle would be unsightly and even mess up fit for switches on something like a high profile top case for example. 
     What I did was research how Lego does their draft angles, and it's pretty ingenious. I've incorporated this into my mold design. It's complicated and more expensive initially, but it'll be worth it for the final product and in the long run in terms of mold durability.
*Researched annealing times so there won't be extractor pin imprints on the parts as they're pushed out of the molds.
*Designed a maker's mark that can go on each part that includes a bunch of information that will make the part classifiable under certain EU and SEA tariff laws to be exempt from big taxes.

Honestly, I'm doing a lot more on this that I can't even really put into words--there are so many little things that have to be accounted for in the design to make it work, but it's totally doable.

Still amazed this is moving forward.  Year after year people say, ďyou canít  do injection molding, itís way too expensive.Ē  Really hope this works out.  You have my money when the time comes.  If you need to make a Kickstarter, youíll have my money there too.

Honestly kinda glad this is taking a while because I definitely can not afford this right now. If you wait until at least January or preferably February then that would be ideal.

So January is looking like the actual timeline.
I can't even detail all that's been happening concurrently with the Rukia GB, but I'll give some general infos here.

* The space I almost signed a lease on is too small. Would have been nice because it's already zoned correctly and around the corner from my apartment. I'm looking at a new place, and factoring in cost differences to the business plan.

* I almost went through with a crowd funding campaign, but I opted instead to take a different route. I don't want to play with other people's money on something this unproven. However, the more I learn, the more I know this is definitely going to happen. And the final form will be really quite different than anything that's ever been put out in the community. I'm really excited.

* Normally I'd be excited to share all the little details of what's resulted from countless hours of design work, but I'm keeping design details to myself. Sadly, I've learned that not everyone is well-intentioned and magnanimous in the community. All I really care about is making this a reality and getting it into the hands of everyone who wants it.

Truly excited for this project.

Out of the countless amazing projects going on, I have 3 on my radar as being unique and impactful on the community and this is one of them. 

Please donít disappear.   ^-^
