    ​Is anyone aware of any developments in the independent support of Intuitive DaVinci robots?  Any third party providers yet?

    Thanks for any feedback, Tim

    Hello tim,

    As of last fall when I spoke with the reps from Davinci there was still not service schools or 3rd party vendors to be able to work on the unit. they still have us trapped into their service support only. With the intricacies of the device I am not sure I would trust a third party working on it. Obviously the Software support is going to need to come from the manuf. regardless. I venture to speculate we are 5-10 years away from having service school for these. Until they become a wide spread component.​
