Well, about that
Something's still going on, but 'll try my best! :yabbem:
Or, if you/someone really need it quickly, i can send the ready-to-print files for 3D printer..
^^^ AFAIK he needs to find a new vendor for 1 or more of the parts he needs. so who can say
ATM he is away -on personal issue==may be back on-line after weekend.
sold out at LPF for now
he has one listed at eekbay. and only 4 more available..
and the 6A super drive.
Same $25 for tracked ship. ( just understand what ' tracking' means at USPS.. not same-same as DHL Express)
No need to tell me the costs involved in producingHi Jerry,
This particular topic is very interesting!!
Thanks for bringing it up!! :beer:
The simplest explanation would be,
To put it into a perspective, i'm actually selling a $150 LPM for only $75 as a filler for those cheap LPM which already extinct
That way the LPF member with small fund towards non-laser-things can buy it, because a budget hobbyist could only afford the laser itself IMHO.
You are right about the "Hardware was already bought completely"
But again, if i could be honest to everyone here, selling the Hyperion Cuprum gave me no profit at all.
That's why i said i'm actually selling a $150 LPM for only $75
The only margin is for a worst case scenario, which is to provide another one way shipping just in case something happened on their side or if the LPM is never arrived at first place.
I could sells the 20W version as cheap as possible, as they're built by myself alone (without the help of paid worker whatsoever), from the scratch, hardware, software, and calibrating.
But the amount of time and life force i've spent developing and building these LPM is quite intangible and confusing to measure, which is why I need some profit to make it happens and continue my works.
About the upgrade scheme, I'm sure you knew that there are many hardware and software out there making the same move,
for example a digital oscilloscope which can be unlocked from 50 MSps to 100 MSps only by paying and entering its serial number
