We've been rebuilding our supply chain - high prices and long lead times forced us to find new suppliers. It took several months just to get spare parts in stock and in late December we were finally able to start building new machines. We did not auction anything off - we started to but cancelled it and just focused on rebuilding.
What are your key goals for 2023?

I'm low-key scared that I won't be able to find parts for my M3-ID printers or be able to buy additional printers as my workload expands. Also, it doesn't feel like anything is being done to improve the MakerGear technology.

I agree with you but keeping fingers crossed.

This is great news. I have had my M2 for about 7 years, now and I just had my first major part failure. My idler on the X axis had a bearing failure. I didn't think, I would find the store open or Makergear.

Boy, was I relieved when I was able to pick up two of them. Hopefully, I can get them soon to complete a project before I go on a vacation.

So, what happened in the last 11 months? Did you restart? I don't see any product for sale on the website anymore. Everything is listed a sold out. I looked because after several years I suspect one of my extruders on my M3 is starting to have problems with it slipping when pulling the filament.

Where did you look? Click on "Shop" in the top menu of the home screen. They have lots of stuff for sale, including filament drives, motors, gears, etc.
