I went to the PCB factory to see the manufacturing of our pre-production PCBs.
It's really exciting to see all these PCBs being made. I went through so many different prototypes that always had a new issue and now the PCBs have been validated and validated again. It's relaxing to see the mass production running with perfectly working PCBs.
As a reminder, we will start shipping at the end of this month, but slowly. We cannot produce 3,000 units at once and will start with 30-50 units, make sure that the production units are working exactly the same as the final golden sample and then move on to 500 units, 1000 units and up. This process will take around 6 weeks to scale up, starting end of July.
The first 30-50 Slick are expected to be received by our first backers early August, and the last one by the end of September.
We are a team of 10 peoples working day and night at the factory to make this happen, 4 engineers on the molds for plastic parts, 3 engineers on the PCBs, 2 managers for the operations and myself.
Once again, thanks for all the love messages you share with me, it helps so much to keep up the motivation in this critical part of the project!
