Ok, how about 7% lower than $30,000.

Funny!

I am researching and have been to a few shows and have lost interest in ANAJET at this point. But I came across the Epson F2000 recently and it is Under $15K right now!! I have also read a new thread that says you lose over 700ml in wasted white ink just for the auto cleanings and other flush each month. So, if true, that is obviously a deal killer for me...because that is insane!

So, I will wait a little while longer and see if you guys get this released in the next few weeks and then decide if the additional $85 discount is worth it!

So, what's the update?

I see that 2015 and the word "significantly under" has been removed from front page.

Nothing gets by you! The price hasn't changed but since we've had more than one occasion where the listed price wasn't looked as "significantly under", I felt it best to remove the wording.

As for 2015, since it's 2016 and we hadn't released it yet, the obvious needed taken care of. That being said, we did have some set backs, but the positive side is some of those setbacks have led to critical discoveries. All I can say is we have been working on this daily to get to market. It's obvious our original announcement was premature, but every day we work harder to bring it to market.

The discoveries are more at the technical level and are what is stabilizing the platform for consistency. It's boring on the surface, but very exciting under the hood.

Currently we have no plans of moving away from DuPont. One of the alluring features of Image Armour is their 35 second cure time. We've been playing around with the newest DuPont inks and we've been able to cure at 35 seconds as well. That combined with the more brilliant colors and reputation, we hadn't moved away from DuPont.

So does Ricoh buying Anajet put a kink into the works? They wouldn't pull your right to use their print head would they? Surely you have a multi-year deal with them but makes me a little nervous if they are issues with the print heads down the road...thanks.

I can definitely understand your concern, but Ricoh's business structure is not aggressive toward "competitors" using their heads. In fact they sell direct to them and some of their competitors sell their printers for over $100,000! We can only guess why they made this purchase but we can say confidently (as defined by their history) they did not do it to shut down any competition using their print heads.

We have a great relationship with Ricoh as does many of their other partners. We plan on continuing this relationship in the years to come.

Hi Jeff, at this stage I can tell you we are so close. Every week that goes by we can look at our progress and see where we are at. We've been building out beta units, but now we are starting our build out of our final production unit. Even though we are close, I don't have a time frame just yet. With each advancement it could accelerate the process or continue on. When I speak of advancements, etc., I'm not referring to features, those could be added as we go. Advancements have to do with stabilizing the platform to a point of walking away from the printer for any amount of time and coming back later with no concerns.

We've been working on speeding up the printer and we feel pretty good at where we are now. Our prints are coming out better than ever! Before anyone asks , we are anticipating this quarter barring any unforeseen issues. Once we know for sure, we'll announce it on our site. I'm always reluctant to give dates only because building a printer from scratch with no help from anyone has proven a much larger task than we initially believed.

Our engineers have incredible talent but unfortunately we don't have a massive engineering staff, so we are doing what we can and still being able to sleep is important! At this stage, it's literally just a race against the clock.
