I ordered my A10T and ordered a couple spools of filament along with it, expecting they would ship together. Had I known the filament was going to ship from china and take 4 weeks, I wouldn't have ordered it.

It also would have been nice if the wifi was stocked in the US.

Nobody wants to buy a printer, then have to wait a month to use it.

On a positive note, I REALLY LOVE the printer and would recommend it to others.

1) china has been in lock down due to corona virus/Chinese new year its effecting all things shipped from china
2)the wifi dongle only works from your phone and most people find it useless
3) can buy filament form anywhere
Ok, more things that they should say up front. I thought it was in the US warehouse.
4) cool, should try my firmware that isn't over 5 years old like what they gave you stock.
I'm working on it. I download the source code and when I tried to build it and got an error. Some day in the future I'm planning on reading the instructions and trying again. I didn't see any .hex file for an A10T with a sensor 3d touch, but since it looks like I didn't need the sensor, I just moved on. I apologize if it is sitting in plain site, I moved on quickly.

I purchased the printer because there are several specific things I want to build, so for right now I pulling my hair out trying to learn Fusion 360, which I still don't even know if it is the right program to use, but appears robust enough to make anything (given enough time and effort).

Code: Select all

Thanks, I've bookmarked it and hope to get back around to it soon.
