Finally..... an update!!
Sorry about the delay folks, this is a long overdue first major update, but... well, good things take time and planning. So, the first post is updated and we highly recommend you to go back and read it fully. We changed a few things on this run to make things easier, precised a few details that were previously mentioned... etc But also, we finally added a price estimate, which will help defining your interest for sure!
Time to confirm your interest then
Thanks again a lot from the team for your patience, which we're doing our best to reward

Hi all. Couldn't find this specifically, so I'll ask here. I've got a 1.24 chamber coming, printed in metals. I'm wondering what the sizing is for crystals, and if there's a preference towards a point or a marble type?
Sorry for the late reply. The crystal slot is for 16mm length and 8mm OD The crystal chamber part requires modification to fit a marble, I have not done that but other members like Obi-Shane or Dart Alice have done it and will know what needs to be done. Hope it helps
I may have missed something but what difference the Prizm5 have? If I understood correctly, the board is the same size, only the yellow capacitor is smaller which will make it easier to install in the cassis. Let me know anyway, if something needs to be changed, I can always do it.
Exciting news isn't it? Not only it brings our international collaboration to a next level with Japan entering the team but harp really makes the best internals!! it's going to be something to behold! And so, as mentioned above, we're working in parallel on the chassis (harp / Solo's Hold ) and the electronics solution (Darth Ryô , Obi-Shane , scottjua ). For instance, are perfecting the electronics side to get the easiest recharge system possible in a saber (and combining it with RICE as shown in our demo a while ago makes it really cool).
Now, another update we'd like to bring you guys. You all saw Plecter Labs recently released new versions of NB and Prizm. So it's really not too much thinking that we can anticipate a new Crystal Focus coming out in the future. The last thing we want is to have a system ready that gets outdated as soon as it releases. SO, since we can already say that our solution will go with the upcoming Crystal Focus 9 (or whatever it will be called), so that we really have the top of the line
Cheers all, and I hope you're as excited as we are about the direction we're taking with this project!!

Celebration preps and trip took me a bit more time than expected (worth it) Back in business, this is of course still happening, and yes, we're late (mainly my fault) but will work hard to get this rolling asap.
Thanks for your patience folks, it will be worth it
Late replying here, sorry folks Yes, it's in progress as I speak, almost finished the entry level chassis (Apprentice). The mid level (Master) will follow very soon. For the top tier (Lord), it will take a bit more time as usual hehe.
jaltrooper: Hey guys! Dumb question...but are there any t-shirts available, or any other swag I can buy to support the Page?

ARKM: We have challenge coins. Contact Luke Skywalker if you want one.

Luke Skywalker: We never did any swag. There's never enough interest to even break even. My sponsor coin run was a huge success and helped us pay the bills well into 2018 and even gave us the money to fund a couple of one time costs we incurred this year.

Luke Skywalker: As for shirts. I really need to get one for me as well. I've been wanting one with our new logo since we changed over. My desire has always been that this is a site for the members. I consider you all my friends and have no desire to make a profit from

ARKM: Luke Skywalker, hit me up if you want the image I used for the front of my shirt.
Sept 23, 2017 16:25:38 GMT -5
Luke Skywalker: Site. I never intend to charge selling fees. The coin drive was a much better way to go imho. As for our logo, name and copywriter and TM's go. I have no issue with anyone wanting to use them. I ask two things. Please let me know prior. If it's crude

Luke Skywalker: and vulgar and casts us in a bad light I simply won't approve it. The other thing I think would be nice is that if our name is used on things like t-shirts that you do make a small donation to help support the site.

Luke Skywalker: My recommendation, and the place I will definitely go when I want to have a shirt done is TRA member defcon. Al's work is outstanding. Al is the Solo's Hold of saber bags and other fabric items. I've had him make me a couple of shirts and several

Luke Skywalker: saber bags. His merchandise is perfection.
Sept 23, 2017 16:29:32 GMT -5
Luke Skywalker: I think I'm down to about 8 coins.
Sept 23, 2017 16:30:26 GMT -5
Luke Skywalker: ARKM what image did you use? Was it the one with SVD's glowing eyes? I'm really curious to see how our logo looks on a shirt. Defcon would certainly need to use the flattened simpler version. For a detailed logo I think you'd need it silk screened.
