  • Carbide3D

    Unless Carbide3d is claiming to be an open source company, this is really a non issue. Many open souce companies have used non open source products: arduino.cc, adafruit, sparkfun, and the open source companies that choose to include a raspberry pi (too many to list). I wish there was a fully open mill built on open hardware (I may have to design one), but until there is one a partially open mill, is a pretty good choice.

  • Their going to stop, because people complain that they DIDN’T get to buy something? That makes no sense. If that many people like it they know people will be upset and want to vent their frustration. That’s just human nature. If anything, they will try to improve something this popular, not discontinue it!

  • I’m sorry, but that response is a complete bunk! You have a website, NOT a store! I would absolutely agree if it was a physical store people actually had to come to, but it’s not. This a failure of your website development team. There is no reason a program couldn’t have handled a timed sale! You had a year to prepare. Any order placed after 9 could have easily been filled in the morning, leaving you with more sales and happy customers! Honestly, I would have been happier with “ We really appreciate your feedback and hope to make all future sales even better ”!

  • WTH! How do you have a cyber Monday sale that ends on Monday before 9pm! So people just getting home are out of luck. What a joke! Would the 3 extra hours really hurt your business? Probably not, but I’m sure you pissed a few potential customers off!

  • I wish Sparkfun would make a tutorial for this already! Tutorials are the one thing that your site is sorely lacking, especially when compared to Adafruit. Step your game up!

  • Sounds like you have the wrong mode selected, it should be in PC for the commander and in SW for Arduino IDE. Check out page 22 of the user manual.

  • A mic, but no speaker.

  • depends on if it’s a word that comes preprogrammed or one you train. the ones you train are more specific to your voice.

  • Is this ever going to happen again?

  • Hopefully they are making a digital version.

No public wish lists :(
