Current Situation Update (06/6/2018)
We attach photos of the last group of printers in the assembly process. (optics, touch screen and thermal insulation missing). In the photos you can see the drawer we have added to facilitate cleaning.
The delay in start the shipments is caused by the software. The Firmware and the backend have been finished for a long time but our main problem is the frontend.
The VIT has a PC inside (I5 8Gb RAM) where the backend is executed (Responsible for the slicer and hardware control) and the frontend (web portal to control the printer and insert the STL).
We’re almost finish the frontend. When we will finish the soft , we would load it on the machines, perform calibration and do quality tests on each of your printers.
We do not want to give an exact date until we are 100% sure but we believe it will be soon.
We are working hard to get an early date and to fulfil your expectations.
The cleaning station continues in the prototype phase. We are testing different sieves with piezoelectric transducers for optimal recycling.
The cleaning station has three zones, the upper one is a sandblaster where the parts are cleaned, the intermediate zone is the powder recycling area and the lower zone is destined for powder storage.
Once again, we thank you for being so patience and understanding!
