This update is mostly a photo dump of some more stuff we have. We got another shipment in on Monday and now have enough components for our entire Indiegogo campaign! The first batch of sheet metal arrived Tuesday morning and the rest of it should be here tomorrow. We'll do another post once everything is here, either tomorrow night or early Thursday...but in the meantime, some more components!
Fans - also in the hundreds - cool the filament. These particular fans have a flow rating of 23 CFM and pressure rating of 2.23 in H20 - so they can cool your filament quickly! They also have built in PWM to ensure it's never too cold for spooling.
These USB breakout cables provide a sturdy, reliable, off-board USB connector for you to plug into. They bolt right into the enclosure so you can plug in hundreds of times without ever damaging the circuit board.
And they're all organized in beautiful little boxes!
These are the main auger sprockets, that are driven by the stepper and chain. Combined with a 9 tooth stepper sprocket, these 45 tooth auger sprockets give a gear ratio of 1:5, for nearly 1000 oz.in at the auger!
These include our hoppers, seen here...
And our extruder mounts, interlock plate, and crank handles. We also have our stainless steel plates for the insulator stack (see bottom right), the stators, and a few other small brackets hidden lower in the box.
Stay tuned for the final few days as components arrive and we start shipping! And if you miss the next update, a very happy holidays from everyone here at ReDeTec.
