    Thank you all for entering the contest and taking the time to put together such great name suggestions. We have received thousands of entries and will be reviewing every one of them, which will be quite a lot of fun but will take some time.

    Just talking about this amazing controller has sparked a lot of interest. OpenBuilds has had a lot of inquiries and many of you want to know exactly when you can buy this new controller. All I can say is that Peter van der Walt @openhardwarecoza and @Mark Carew are very busy putting on the finishing touches and we'll be letting everyone know when it is available for purchase.



    Good Luck Everyone --- Stay Tuned for Updates! :D

    Quick Update: Just wanted to let everyone know that we have spent a lot of timing reviewing the entries. There were so many well thought out suggestions and each deserved consideration. We've been through 3 rounds of pairing down the entries and we are now left with a couple of dozen entries that are standing out to us. We are planning to get this list down to the last few finalists and put it out for a vote here on OpenBuilds.com.

    As to the actual controller development....the designers keep adding great new features. The upside is that this controller is really going to be everything you could want for you CNC machines. The additional development also means that I don't have an availability date yet.

    Thank you all for hanging out here and be sure to watch for our upcoming Run-Off Vote!

    Nov 7th Update: Testing on the controller continues! About 24 finalists in the naming contest. So hard to pair this list down to just a few for voting but we are trying!

    UPDATE: Exciting developments are happening. Many additional features have been added that both improves the product but slowed production. Designer Peter Van Der Walt is in the middle of a move however after that, we plan to get this thing wrapped up, announce the official name (and the multiple winners who suggested the selected name), and launch this to our community! Thanks for your patience. We are as excited as you are about this controller!
