Hello America!

Posted by Cartesian Co. (Creator)

We're going to be at 3 Maker Faires over the next three weeks:

  • New York World Maker Faire on the 20th and 21st of September
  • Milwaukee Maker Faire and on the 27th and 28th of September 
  • Atlanta Mini Maker Faire on the 4th and 5th of October

If you're going to be at these shows make sure you pay us a visit, we'd love to meet you!

We'll be in New York, Milwaukee and Atlanta a few days before and after each Faire. Also we'll be in San Francisco after all 3. We'd love to visit any nearby hackerspaces, universities or just meet up with anyone that's interested in electronics rapid prototyping. To get in touch feel free to leave a comment or send us a message here.

If your order is part of batch #1 you will receive an email from our shipping company (DHL) once your printer has shipped. We're aiming to have all batch #1 Argentums shipped in the coming days.

The majority of our build instructions are now online and we're working hard on the finishing touches. We'll be updating the instruction sections as they're finished so you can start assembling as soon as you get your printer!

Here's a sneak peek of what you can expect:

Automated Sandblaster for Substrates

Substrates before and after sandblasting.
Substrates before and after sandblasting.
Our interns at Cartesian Co are an awesome bunch. We ask them to sort hundreds of cables, and they do it. We ask them to make multiple trips to the hardware store for supplies, and they do it. One other task that they do for us (without complaint), is sandblast substrates. Over and over again. For hours everyday. Day in and day out. You get the picture.  
 
In order to show kindness to our interns and relieve them from this time-consuming task, we have set up a jig within our sandblaster to automatically perform this task. An arm was fitted inside the machine which pans left and right, providing even coverage on the substrates. 


To combat the issue of dust and other flying nasties, some thick plastic film was used to seal around the jig. The film is clear so that we can see into the sandblaster and ensure that everything is working correctly.

Keep tabs on us!
