Update - Manufacturing process of the VIT goes according to planning.
First of all, we would like to apologize for our silence.
After Christmas, part of the team has had the flu, so we have not been able to prepare a proper update until now.
After the campaign was finished, we started focusing on improving details of the VIT SLS printer.
The 1st improvement is an enlargement of the printing area. The motor was located just under the printing area, and we have moved it to one side. This means that we have taken advantage of the free area below, which allowed us to gain 5cm on the height. This means that the printing capacity is now of 25x25x30 cm.
Because of this expansion, we have also enlarged the door to make the access to the inside part of the machine much easier. By these means, the extraction will be done almost horizontally.
On the other hand, we have also added a drawer under the printing area, which makes easy the cleaning of the machine, since the excess power will fall in it.
These weeks we have also received new materials that are shown in the pictures attached to the update.
The components shown in the two previous photographs are for the first units.
The final PCBs are being manufactured by our supplier and we are checking the operation and adjusting small details of the firmware in test PCB soldered by ourselves.
The metal cabinets of the VIT are in the paint shop and will be delivered to us in the next days.
The manufacturing process of the VIT goes according to planning.
Thank you for your patience.
