Dear Forge 1 Fans,
we still have to perfect our kickstarter campaign, in the next days we will announce the definitive campaign start, which is related to the shipment of the first 50 unities.
For the delay, we decided to join to our apologies a free resin pack for each mounth of delay, starting from the 1 of august.
It Makes 3 resin packs extra for the antecedent subscribers.
In this Video,straight out of the camera, we show the functionality of forge 1, with decisive mesurements.
Dear Forge 1 fans,
In this on purpose uncut video, we show the electronic and software functionalities.
The qualty is poor, because it is like it came from the camera and light had to be dark, for having a certain amount of contrast, which normally is much higher, because the machine is totally closed and not like in this case without roof, side and front doors and with demounted front part.
The movements of the z axis are very subtle, you have to look carefully to see it.
we would like to show the printing process but it is impossible, if we put resin on the VAT you will not see the display, with the platform
into it, and the contrast is needed for printing.
Everything must be closed.
But the video is straight out of the camera, you see everything important working fine.
Something about the noises:
In reality is the machine much quieter, you can notice the noises on the mouse clicks and wheel; in reality they are never so loud as in the video.
The machine is also without roof,side door, front doors and front part, once it is closed, the noise is minimal.
In this Video made by us, we show the mechanical functionality of the plan B unit
In this Video we show the guides for the first 50 Forge 1 drawers.
We chose high quality guides with a big load margin and they should last many years, like all other components.
in this short video made by us we show 400 panels, made of composite aluminum / polyethylene and Makrolon panels.
Further you see the steel brackets for connecting the various panels together and 50 kg of polyester resin,50 square meters robust glassfiber,10 kg gelcoat and materials for making the molds and building the whole front part and the roof.
In The second part of the video, there are some macros of the cnc machined panels.
We are preparing a revolution
Forge One is the world’s first printer to use the light of a tablet for resin curing. This printer is bound to become a market leader very quickly.
With our intuitive and straightforward software, turning your visions into reality is a cinch. The time between when you take Forge One out of the box and when you print your first object will be much shorter than you would expect.
Slicing the 3d model
explanations about the video below
Forge 1 utilises daylight resin and normally is totally black inside it. explanations about the video below
The only way to film Forge 1 in action, was to open the doors wide open, to demount the lower front part for having a descent viewing angle.Forge 1 utilises daylight resin and normally is totally black inside it.
After that, we put the platform much higher than the normal starting position (which is in the VAT), otherwise, you would not be able to see the tablet, projecting light from below the Vat and for the same reason it is empty.
In the video below you see the self test that Forge 1 does to its Z-axis, which is succeful when the vibrations sensors do not register anomalous vibrations, which would compromise the print quality.
Finally you can print really big and extremely precise
Ready on Delivery
Thanks to the wireless charging of the tablet, bluetooth and wifi connections, there is not a single cable to plug in, just put the tablet into the drawer and that`s all
