Stabilisers:- Trial production runs and shipping information!

Hi all,

Here is an update with regards to the progress of the Stabilisers! A lot has happened in the past 3 weeks.

Firstly, we received the 3D printer 8 days ago, much earlier than we anticipated, which was very pleasing. Since then, Sam has built and calibrated the machine precisely, to ensure the prints we get off the machine are of a high quality.

We are now in an ongoing process of printing out test Stabilisers using different print settings. This is to ensure the final settings we choose, print Stabilisers that are of high quality, strong and have a reasonable printing time. Here are some detailed photographs showing the level of detail you can expect and the layer visibility in grey filament.

We are starting to get high-quality consistent prints of the Stabiliser at 0.15mm layer heights, therefore we are anticipating we can start shipping on Wednesday the 6th of March, well ahead of schedule! We plan to make and ship, so each time a Stabiliser is made it will be shipped on the same day.
