Electronics and Injection Molding Photos and Update
First I want to apologize for the delay in this update - I expected to post it from the road last week but did not have the connectivity I expected and as you will see, I have many photos to share this update.
We continue to test the electronics, but we do now have the final electronics and I want to share some pictures of them - these are factory made using the final settings, parts, etc.
Heatbed Issue Fixed
As you can see in the photo of it below - the heatbed warping issue mentioned in the last update has been fixed. The factory suggestion of using a thinner circuit board worked well.
Due to both personal obligations this the last two weeks as well as other obligations required to keep the rest of the project moving forward, we haven't made as much headway on the last plastic part as we had hoped - in the next week this will be my sole focus - the last part is the head unit, an essential part no doubt. Our next update will be all about that, and moving forward once that is done.
Leonid and his helpers and their awesome injection molding design skills have provided prototype parts of the rest of the parts - here are some photos of them. We are testing these now before OKing the final mold creation.
Final Request For Help
Several injection molding experts contacted us in our initial request for help - and if you were one of those people, or are an injection molding designer that wants to help and would be willing to put some time into helping us with the final piece - the head unit redesign and have time available in the next week to do so - please reach out to us! Via Kickstarter or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our next update will be all about the head unit and the next steps into production!
Thank you all for your patience and support,
