Lovingly holding on to my creationFinally after many days in testing and development i can now proudly say that our Ilios HD machine is working. Although the last component for our first build hasn't arrived yet (PDMS for the Vat surface), all mechanics operate flawlessly and i even did a test print with the projector setup mentioned in our Facebook page.

There were lots of things that needed to be modified in the final assembly so it is a good thing that no files were published until now. In few days, those who are interested in the plans for the Ilios HD Kit, shall be able to download them from the Files section.

Things that shall be used to build the 3D printerAt last all the parts needed for the 3D printer build arrived. It took some time for the main components (mechanics) to get here but once i received the crate, it became clear why. The package weighed over 280kg and was very nicely sealed in a wooden crate. All the aluminum extrusions, spindles, fastening hardware and other accessories came in just as i ordered them.

Working & Waiting

Demetris holding a projectorAlthough things may seem to have gone quiet, after the IndieGoGo campaign finished, a lot of things have been happening behind the scenes and on the website. First off, few days after the campaign was funded, all parts have been ordered. I am happy to say that the last projectors shall be picked up on Monday (25/02/2013) since not all were ordered from the same place. I have been informed that the mechanical parts for the Ilios 3D printer shall be shipped within the upcoming week, since they needed some machining on the spindles and the extrusions them selves. It is a killer to sit around and wait for the parts to arrive, i know, but once everything is here, work shall pick up really fast and should be quite exciting.
