Aaah, why did no one remind me to post the new pictures yesterday? :)

The new material looks better. Still a few marks, but these should be fixed with the coating in the end.

And yep, those parts are being neatly packaged up for shipping.

Great pictures, the one before the last gives a pretty good idea about the looks of the material. Well done!
I smell flying prototypes quite soon now. :)

Is that a clear case piece I see in that blend? I want to see a clear case with black nubs, black shoulder buttons and black lid decoration.

As I see, the keyboard-part is the only missing thing.
Hope they did it yesterday and you recieve everything this weekend to produce the prototypes and videos

It looks fantastic! It seems like the plastic issue has been minimized, even I would say it is no more, but hope you receive those soon and can shoot some HD photos :D.

Looks really nice. Now there is no shrinking or it's minimal. I think these marks visible in 4th photo are from material flow and they shouldn't be visible if surface will be modified by good coating.

I'm only speculating here, but I imagine that the coating would act to lubricate the mould, and that might change the material flow dynamics enough to eliminate the marks.

And likely requires a hardened mould, which would be why they can't do it yet.

I think that coating will provide both lubrication and thermal spreading making achievement of steady state much faster. I don't know how it's in plastics forming, but in metal forming when we use the same set of tools to process more and more hot products, we finally go to "steady state" which means that temperature repeats its cycles in consecutive processes.
So if everything will be OK in steady-state conditions it'll be OK in most products, while only in first ones may not be the best. This is from metallurgy point of view, in plastics maybe they use pre-heating?
Sorry if I messed something, too long without sleep.
