On Final Approach! Feb 18 2014
We have been working feverishly for the past few months to get this redesign done, and we are pleased to say we are finished! The Isis One now has two independently adjustable extruder/hotend assembles of a completely new design, and is capable of soluble support. We've also added dynamic bed leveling, which lets us get first layers absolutely perfect every time, even with two extruders. What started out as a relatively simple hotend redesign turned into a total overhaul of our machine, linear systems and all. It's been quite an adventure, and it's certainly taken quite a bit more time than we planned to spend, but we're very happy with the results we're getting, both in terms of print quality and reliability. We think you will be too.
Pictures, video, source files, and tons of other information is forthcoming in the next few weeks, as we formally launch the new design. We can't wait to fill you in on all the details, but in the mean time we are furiously busy with production.
We would like to thank our awesome, patient, and incredibly loyal preorder customers for bearing with us through the redesign. You've been wonderfully supportive, and we are more grateful than we can express. We have the first batch of our new printheads arriving from the machine shop on the imminently, and should have machines shipping shortly thereafter.
Thank you all so much! More to come soon.-Marc
P.S. The picture above is a test print of 160 mm (6") birdcage for a youtube commenter who was concerned about overhang on large objects. It came out beautifully and is a fun addition to the birdcage collection!
