Project update 8 of 13

The End is Nigh


Following the end of the campaign I’m going to allow a bit of extra time to make sure that all of the backers are up, running and happy. The Twoolhead will be available for pre-order through Crowd Supply at the same url as the campaign page, with the first production batch slated for delivery mid March 2018. I’ll continue posting updates and content from the first production build so please follow along!

As a reminder, the Twoolhead is now also available with 0.8mm nozzles for even faster, stronger parts. This configuration produces rougher parts and won’t be supported with nearly as many profiles, but is great for producing strong parts extremely quickly.

Check out some parts I’ve printed out for comparison The parts printed with the 0.8mm nozzle are definitely rougher but should be stronger than their 0.5mm counterparts, and on average the 0.8mm parts have taken about half the time to print as the 0.5mm parts! Pretty awesome :)

Here’s 0.5mm and 0.8mm nozzle versions of the modified extruder mount that the Twoolhead uses so you can see the difference in appearance:

And here’s both versions of the Twoolhead backplate:

Again, a huge thank you to Crowd Supply and all of the bakers and supporters, this campaign has been an amazing experience :)
