Howdy everyone,

It's the most wonderful time of the year! There truly is nothing better than the holidays — we get to spend time with loved ones, indulge in holiday treats and cocktails and enjoy countless hours of free time. But before turning to "Holiday Mode", we decided to finish the "homework" first — in this update you'll see a full length printing footage with sound recording, 3DP test results, and Q&A on the laser engraver reward.

Full Length Printing with Sound

3DP Test Results

1. Dimensional Accuracy

 2. Bridging Performance

  3. Overhang Performance

 4. Negative Space Tolerance

 5. Fine Positive Features Performance

 6. Mechanical Resonance in XY

 7. Mechanical Resonance in Z

High-res photos of test results can also be downloaded here.

Q&A on the Laser Engraver Reward

Q: How does the 300K Laser Stretch Goal work?

A: If we reach 300K, every backer who pledged no less than £99(Super Early Bird) will be able to get a FREE laser engraving kit (a 500mW, 405nm laser engraving module + mounting plate + a pair of protection glasses).

Q: Can you do a laser demo?

A: No problem. We've done a quick demo on Facebook before, and is more than happy to do it properly again.

Q: Do I need to assemble the laser add-on myself?

A: Yes, but we've designed the mounting plate together with this module, so the only job will be twisting a few screws and connecting the wire. 

Q: Will the laser engraving module with glasses be available for purchase even if the stretch goal is not reached?

A: Yes, an individual laser kit will be available later. However, we can only negotiate the price down as much as possible with certain amount of orders, so the best thing is to confirm this demand during Kickstarter and get the 1st batch laser shipped as early as we can, at an affordable price.

Thanks

      Now I'm even more confused. If I understand this correctly, those who pledge 389 (like me) will definitely get the laser regardless of whether the stretch goal is reached; those who pledge 499+ will get the laser only if the stretch goal is reached. Is that right? Seems weird. Could you please clarify in your next update? Thanks.

      @all:
      We just made a mistake. The latest update stated that a FREE laser module will be provided for pledges over 99, the correct one should be 499. We will make another update shortly to clarify that mistake. Sorry for confusion.

      Also can you do test for BOTH PLA and ABS
      This one is ABS or PLA? Have you full size fotos?

      Thanks for all these pics and for doing the test prints. Much appreciated!

      Being able to see, play and measure the actual prints - what was the score achieved in each test please? For example we can't measure anything on our screens so no idea if the dimensional accuracy scored a 1 or a 5! :)

      Thanks,
      Roger
