Just wondering if the plan to release the first new hybrid nest in April is still the plan?
The schedule has been pushed out, but just a little. We will be doing a production run on the new Formica Hybrid toward the end of this month, but they won't be available in the store until mid to late May. (That is the latest plan...)
Pics! We want pics! :lol:
I don't think you'll get them.

The plan is to discontinue the current model as the manufacturing method is too slow. We will offer one generic design in a small size (similar in size to the current Hybrid Small).
I suppose it's a little cheeky to ask for the design of the v2 nests if they're being discontinued? ;)

Are you talking about the 3D print files?

We have discussed this actually and have not decided yet. I think there is a good chance that they will be put into the public domain at some point though ;)

Might not be until the end of the year though...

Could we get the latest update on the new hybrid nests? And also in another post something was said about a new more affordable out world...can you possibly shed some light on that subject as well? Thanks for your time guys.

We are putting the finishing touches on the new Formica Hybrid Nest. The other designs will follow after that. I hesitate to put a timeframe on it since the other timeframes I have put out there have not come to pass. Again, we are "hoping" to have this one available in July sometime, but hard to say definitively.

The outworld is moving along well. We reviewed a sample from our factory last week. There were a few issues to resolve, and we are working on those. "Hoping" to have these available in July as well.

I'm glad to hear everything is moving along smoothly. Definitely looking forward to making some purchases as soon as these new items are available. Especially and Out World. I would love to have one of the current Out World but and all honest $100 is a little steep for something you can make at home for cheap. I do understand its shape and it's lid along with the lip on top or not readily available anywhere else. It will be nice to see something more easily obtainable for your average person. I can't wait to see the results of the hard work you guys are putting in to these new items.
