Big update-week ahead - sneak peek

Postby Barmonster » Mon Sep 01, 2014 9:22 am

M3D anounced an update that is so big, that they had to split it into several ones. It will mostly be about the tech specs that the Micro will actually have in comparison with what they promised, the pre-production batch of printers that should have been send out by now to the August-backers and the software.
As a sneak peek they uploaded some videos to YouTube.

An interview with the lead software designer of M3D

Seeing the images of the printed extruder-gears, i am a little bit concerned and glad not to bne in the august batch. I ordered some similar created things on shapeways once, and the were ... kind of grainy. and not to sturdy. the teeth do not look quite sharp. i do hope for some real cutted steel or aluminium gears in the later post beta batches.

look how cute and tziny it looks on the pics with the people standing around. awesome.

replaceble nozzles. good. 0.35mm good. getting alternatvie nozzles later on. great.
proprietary nozzle design, not so good.

just my few cents on this update.
