dUltimate - Kickstarter UPDATE #63

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/lenpolygon/dultimate-a-multifunctional-dice-design/posts/3666656


Hi Ultimates,

The weekend is nearing and we've received news from the other side of the world that can't wait!

Project Status & Expectations

Samples (good news!)


Life is like a box of dice...

After the horrible story of the samples lost in shipping, there are finally new dice! A lot of them!

These are all uncoated metal dUltimate dice samples. And this is a picture that I just received of a new batch of coated dUltimate dice samples:


New metal dUltimate dice samples

A set of these will be shipped to me for approval, and a few other samples will remain at both the manufacturer and the purchasing agent.

Based on the image above, which one of these are you most excited for??


The bad news...

Unlike the metal samples the plastic has been a lot more difficult. Not only did the manufacturers first attempt fail, but they have now confirmed that their second attempt has also failed. This is due to the rather complex and detailed geometry which apparently is much more difficult to cleanly produce in a plastic material.

For now, the manufacturer will keep trying to make the dice in plastic according to specification. If this doesn't work out then I will have to discuss alternatives with them. If all fails then there should still be metal options available for those willing to change their pledge, but there's no need to make any rash decisions now. First we check the quality of the metal samples and I will continue discussing with manufacturer on how to fix the plastic dice samples.

If there will be any changes to the plastic design I will discuss this with you all and always see if the change is in line with YOUR expectations. Again, for now, no worries and I will keep you updated.


Pledge Manager

You can still make changes to your address information yourself by going back to the PledgeBox link in your mailbox. Before the dice will be shipped I'll send out a reminder for everyone to check their address information via mail & Kickstarter. For anything else you can contact me at info@lenpolygon.com


Keep on rolling!
