TriangleLab, did you get any more pictures of the anodizing yet?

Anodizing won't be so fast. Normally anodizing is the last process after CNC and bead blasting. I'll keep you updated and post some photos when we get there.

Paid! Looking forward to this board.

Just a quick question regarding the Engraving service.

Where would the engraving on the board be exactly?

Laser engraving is pretty flexible. You can basically choose any position on the board for engraving.

CNC of all top cases are finished. I'm surprised that alsoran is doing these so fast.

I think the typical process is that they get sanded/polished next to eliminate any imperfections, then anodized and dyed.

bead blasting is the process that eliminate imperfections and make a good texture on the surface. That will be done right before anodizing for the best results.

Update:



The CNC of all the parts have been finished. However the funds in Alsoran's Paypal account has been frozen. He's not able to pay the factory the rest payment and get the cases out of the factory. The funds can be released as late as late February, which is still in the range of the estimation of lead time.

Alsoran said he'll try to borrow some money from friends and pay the factory. At least I'm not gonna make sure the Paypal protection wont expire.

All the parts are ready for anodizing. Alsoran found a factory can make this color. He has sent an AL1 for anodizing for this color. If the result is good, you will have opportunity to change to this color if you like.

Oh wow, what color is that exactly? Like a deep grey or blue? Or is it black?

Love all the different colors, though Im always afraid that doing anything other than black/grey/silver would limit me to one set that color matches.

That's a lot closer to the blue in the renders in the IC that some of us were asking for. I'm very tempted to switch over.

Anxiously watching to see how these turn out. Hope there's a R2 at some point!
