Re: Has there been another Delay in MMU 2.0 shipping?


Mine was ordered 14th Sept - still no signs of shipping. Clearly they are not shipping by the ordering date. Ho Hum! *waits in the queue like a stereotypical British man* 😆

Lol, hope you get it before brexit kicks in 😛
No just kidding, maybe ask in the chat, somehow after asking it got shipped within a couple of days. Ordered my kit Sep 16th.

Chat just told me that there is another "production" delay. And mine should be shipped this week. Ordered it on Sept 9, 2018. 😕

I did chat yesterday, ordered Aug 31, and they sent a message to the shipping team to get it sent out this week also. We'll see what happens.
To be honest, I'd rather they be satisfied with incoming parts quality and have everything QCd properly than have MMU2's being shipped out with sketchy parts. I've waited 5 months so far, so what's another few weeks in the scheme of things?

I agree. I ordered Sept 9th and still on back order. I work in Manufacturing and new product development and there are lots of upgrades happening in the first year of production that you might not even know about. A lot of times its just way things are assembled and other stuff that they find out as they go along.

Well, I was in the next batch to be shipped but canceled my order today - so someone should be getting a unit sooner than they otherwise would. I am a bit surprised people are so exited about getting their upgrade with the massive amount horror stories being posted and reviews on places like youtube.

You have a far greater chance being part of the highly dissatisfied group than satisfied if any of the recent polls are correct.

Well, there are also tons of videos where people are complaining about Creality CR*, Ender*, Tronxy, Anet, geektech.... and all the other printer and still millions are being sold.
The thing is, for some people $250 is a no-brainer to get MMU2 unit and be able to print MMU. If you read the poll right, it's only about 100% reliability. Most of the time it means user intervention is required. It doesn't affect the successful finish of the print.

Well I had to come back to mention that <fanfare> mine shipped overnight </fanfare>.
I was in the "last last last shipping" category of the late August/early Sep group..

Maybe the delays are to fix that cracking part issue.

As far as I know printed parts are not the bottle neck of the shipping process. More like stepper motors and other parts prusa is ordering. Maybe they started producing the sla printer and that is causing the mmu2 shipping issues.

Hmmm... I ordered 9/2 and it's still listed as backorder. Maybe time to go to support...

i dont really see a massive amount of horror stories anywhere, infact there is minimal stuff to be seen about the MMU out there and as always the majority is negative because nobody is gonna take the time to make a big video or blog post to tell us how he likes it unless this person already is a 3d printing youtuber or something.

The shipping table is updated, two weeks extra on the MMU2

Whew, was it even really updated?

The Aug/Sept orders still at "shipping last few units" for the MMU2. Been stuck there for about a month.

They must have bumped into quite a supplier problem. Hopefully its all resolved now, and they will start to resume shipping soon.

Re: Has there been another Delay in MMU 2.0 shipping?

This is the main reason I haven't ordered yet. It doesn't seem like PR has learned anything from prior experiences with delays in shipping.

I keep checking the shipping table and it doesn't seem to get better. The MK3 is still 4 weeks for shipping. The MMU2, today, sits at May for shipping...that's 3 months away at a minimum. 😯

That's assuming they can keep to the shipping table.

HMMMM...

With the MK3S rumored to be announced within the next 24 hours...

Could it be that pending MMU2 orders will be shipped with a free MK3S upgrade?? Maybe that was causing the shipping delay?

Re: Has there been another Delay in MMU 2.0 shipping?

Well, we now know that the delays were caused by the MMU 2.0 being replaced with the MMU 2.0S

This was confirmed in the MK3S reddit post where the person who received their kit posted a picture of the handbook featuring the MMU2S.

MK3S manual is posted on Prusa Website. Looks like the extruder has been updated. I am at work so cannot review much until later.

Formal announcement of the MMU 2S and the upgrade from MMU 2 to MMU 2.0S is in the blog that was posted today by JP.

Sept 4, 2018 and counting. I am impressed with the commitment to fixing this issue but like most impatient 9 year old children stuck in a 50 something body I still want my MMU 2.0(now S) status to change from Pink (Backorder) to Green (Shipped). 😆
Just like the car in front of me in Shanghai who got T-Boned in the intersection by a 5 ton dump truck running a red light (Yes that did happen and the cab driver found it hysterical. Strange sense of humor ) everyone ahead of me took bullet and drove these improvements. Thank you for your Sacrifice( and I will think of you while I am enjoying a relatively trouble free MMU 2.0S or maybe when I hear that My Sacrafice song (Creed) on the oldies rock station.
