Update on the Updates - today is Shop Day

3 likes

Hello backers and interested parties!

Today is a shop day, meaning we are taking pictures of all parts and will be building the BOM.

 These are the pictures of what we are starting with - at the end of the day, you will see an amazing difference as my assembly partners clean up the wiring and simplify the console.

Suggestions?  Email me at liz havlin usa at gmail and I will check my email every few hours!

      The current foot print is about 12" wide, and about 36' long.

      I'm aiming to get it to about 18" long with the winder having its own 4"x8" footprint.

      And yes you can put the winder above, below, next to the extruder. I will experiment with any adjustments needed to make in order to put the winder anywhere you'd like.

      Great update, thanks... Simpler wiring and console is what exactly what I'd like to get in the final version since I have to go for the kit to avoid overseas shipping and customs problems and I am not that experienced in assembling such kits. I would also like to hear about dimensions, and whether the spooler can be placed somewhere above/below the extruder to save some space or not.

      Thanks in advance...

      Hello Liz! This is looking really good! Quick question: What are the approximate footprint dimensions of this machine? Or what is the final dimensions you are looking to get to? I need to begin to clear some space for it and need to know how much room I will need. ;-)
