I contacted KNK about this and received this response:
We are currently in the process of testing what we hope to be the final version of the software in order to drive the Orbitizer. The hardware is in stock now, so once we’re happy with the software, and an update to SCAL has been published, we will begin shipping.
The owner of SCAL never makes any kinds of promises or even estimates. We just patiently wait for each new software update for testing.
It’s not a good idea to release it yet because someone might decide to experiment with what’s currently programmed in SCAL. That, along with the fact I’ve not received one yet to write up ANY instructions or warnings, it could lead to something bad happening. Hope that makes sense!
Yes, I understand. It’s just that I purchased the Zing Orbit last December for its “orbit” capabilities. I don’t know of any other machine that can write on cylinders/spheres and I have projects ready to go once it’s out. I hope it’s sooner than later!
