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.

We did it! Thank You!

Hi friends,

Together, we absolutely smashed our goal for the Adaptalux Stabiliser, thank you so much for all who supported the campaign! In total, we have raised over £6,945.

What Happens Now?

In the coming weeks, we will be sending out surveys to collect your addresses and pledge details (colour etc). Please keep an eye out for this.

Over the next 14 days, Kickstarter will collect your money and then it will be deposited into our bank account after this period. We are anticipating the 3D printer to get here on the 27th of February and from that point, we will start printing and optimising the design for 3D printing. Once the printer settings are optimised for making the stabilisers at the best possible quality, we will begin. We should be able to start shipping in March.

I Missed Out on the Kickstarter Campaign 🙁

If you just missed out on the Kickstarter campaign, do not worry! You can now pre-order the stabiliser through our online store.
