At-last, the hard part is behind us. The Ilios machine produced its first results. The initial build, seen in this image was a test not only for the functionality of the machine but also for its endurance since during the build there were lots of tests done, like adding weights to the build lift, messing with the motors and doing stress tests while the machine was working. Needless to say, even with all the interference while in build mode, the machine outperformed with flying colors.
To demonstrate the Ilios HD Kit in action, a video was posted, which shows how the Seasons model was built and what the end result was. The resolution of each layer was set to a relatively simple 0.1mm layer thickness, to save time and present first results as soon as possible. Even with low resolutions of layers however, the final model was more than what i expected and the material rigidity after curing was superb. This project definitely was worth all the sleepless nights, hard work and effort since now there is a worthy tool to accommodate the manufacturing needs of OSRC parts and generally any build that needs to be made. Having a 3D printing machine definitely lifts a large weight off my shoulders and opens up door to many new directions and opportunities when it comes to design and creation.
