It continues to amaze me how trivial the things that derail a schedule can be. The plastic sleeve for packaging MakerSlide was out of stock, and arrived at the factory only last Friday. The whole batch of MakerSlide sat in the warehouse, uncut, for more than a week, waiting for packaging material to arrive. To reduce the risk of damage, the cut parts must go from the saw straight into the sleeves — so no sleeve, no cutting (that’s actually a good thing). However, there are several other suppliers of the same type of sleeve, and we decided on the packaging material months ago, so one can’t help but wonder why we had to wait.
