Blu-DRO Now Uses the TouchDRO iGaging DRO Adapter

Monday, January 1, 2018

I get a fair number of emails asking if I sell fully assemble board, in a box, ready to go. Although I have seriously thought about offering a fully turn-key version of the iGaging DRO controller, I couldn't get the numbers to pensil out: the cost of making a custom injection molded enclosure is ridiculously high, and 3D printed enclosures take too much time and I couldn't find a way to make it scale. Meanwhile, I knew that Al at has been selling fully enclosed Arduino TouchDRO controllers. I've met Al "virtually" on TouchDRO Bata Testing Google+ community, where he had been a frequent poster, always willing to help or answer questions. Furthermore, the feedback I got from people who purchased blu-DRO units was very positive about his level of customer support, etc. After some "noodling around" I decided to email Al and see if we can find a way to work together. A few emails later we decided that I will sell the boards to Al in bulk at a bit of a discount so he can use them in his units. This seemed to be a win-win situation: Al would get more robust controllers for the blu-DRO and I can stop worrying about creating a turn-key version of TouchDRO.
