This machine is still not available???

I swear I saw somewhere that it would launch by October.

Maybe it was October 2016?

We are starting to add names to the pre-order list. The machine is scheduled to ship to the public before the end of the year.

Yes, we had slated this for an earlier release. Since we have built everything from ground zero including coding, we've ran into a few situations that slowed us down and a few that took longer than expected. We are currently working on our first production model to test out the manufacturing process and any final tweaks we need before going into full production. I'm not sure people really understand the monumental task we've been working on but it's much greater than taking someone else's technology and using that as a base. This is the way we used to do it, but with the Genesis, we no longer have a reason to use that method. After this product is released, we'll be able to work on more features for it and begin working on future products.

It's not that we don't understand the task....it is you teasing us by showing at shows before it is anywhere near ready and quoting spring to summer of 2015 last year...I still think you are on to something with this printer but eventually people have to make a purchase. I myself am building a new building in the spring so I am holding off buying equipment since I do not have the room anyway...so I am still with you...I will say it is a good decision to get it right before releasing it to the public. Most people can not afford a $30k mistake. I wish you well as you guys seem to operate with good intentions. Just a little over promising and under delivering on this project...but keep the updates coming so we at least know the status!

Thanks.

Brent, I don't think Belquette is interested in trying to quickly fill the needs of people who are "eventually needing to make a purchase". This is a printer they are trying to make as perfect as possible before it hits the public. They also never made any promises. If you take a look back they have given estimated dates but never a promise. Unlike some other companies out there they have not taken pre-orders and sat on your money for a year while trying to beta test and fix any arising issues with their product.

We do appreciate the feedback. There really isn't a need to go into full details of how and why it was delayed. The bottom line is, just like you said, we don't want to release a $30k mistake. So far, the product is very promising. We could have released the product over a year ago if we would have hired an integrator to do the work for us. Of course this would have added $10-$15k to the price tag. Our goal is to make this product extremely simple to use at an affordable price.

Everyone can lecture us how we fumbled our deadlines, but the reality is, all of our dates were generalities. And yes, since hindsight is 20/20, we all can now see how we announced the product too early. There isn't a company in the world who wants to have this product released more than BelQuette. We simply can't compromise what we are doing now just to release the product.

I will say though, there are features that won't be on it out of the gate so it's not delayed any further than it already has been. The plus side of this is the features will be software related, so we can push out updates as they are developed and tested.

Do you mean significantly under 30k mistake?

I was pretty excited about this product and I still am.

When I first started doing DTG in 2011, I thought to myself, "why can't these manufacturers add a dedicated line for the maintenance/cleaning fluid???"

Well, I really do hope that all the white ink maintenance and headache is figured out with this machine.

I guess I will keep waiting. Thanks!

We would have bought one at ISS in orlando had it been ready. The model that was there had an issue and wouldn't print. We also asked for a printed sample well before the show and have yet to receive one. So we've had to rethink our short term dtg plans.

I still think this is a very promising machine and I will be watching very closely when it does finally launch.

Keep pushing...I just looked at starting an entire screen print division but even if I do I will still buy one of these for the short runs, fill ins, etc...keep us updated. Spring will be here before you know it!
Thanks.

So is it 30k? Or under? Would you be able to give us the "real" price? This Genesis Dtg printer looks amazing! I will be getting it no matter what. I have the epson F2000 right now and love it. Adding the genesis would make things 100000000 times better.

My "Significantly under $30,000" and yours is a little different I guess!
