This will be the last update during the crowdfunding phase of our campaign, and we want to say thank you! Thank you for the interest, for the support, and for the suggestions. And, of course, thank you for helping us meet our funding goal so we can bring Vapor Phase One to the world! To conclude our crowdfunding effort, we thought it would be appropriate to present some photographs of our latest soldering results. Read the full update.
As a follow up to our last update, we want to show you how Vapor Phase One utilizes its five isolated temperature measurement channels to produce a clean soldering profile. Read the full update.
This update covers recent improvements to Vapor Phase One's thermal performance and to its user intereface. Learn how we've made the temperature sensors more responsive and integrated the touchscreen into the rest of the system. Read the full update.
In the interest of making Vapor Phase One even more precise, we are currently working on some improvements to the controls for its heating system and to the temperature sensor at the heart of that system. Unfortunately, these enhancements are taking longer than we anticipated, which has prevented us from posting a number of campaign updates that we had planned. As a result, and in consultation with Crowd Supply, we have decided to extend our campaign by a full month to ensure that we have time to share as much information as possible with potential backers. In addition, we have managed to reduce our funding goal by approximately $5k, which will allow us to proceed with manufacturing if we sell 12 Vapor Phase Ones (rather than 14). The backer price will remain the same! Read the full update.
This update describes the graphical user interface we are developing for Vapor Phase One Read the full update.
This update announces our improved display hardware, demonstrates the physical integration of that screen into Vapor Phase One, and introduces the framework we are using to develop our touch user interface. Read the full update.
If you're interested in one of the most advanced soldering technologies available—one that is reliable, flexible, and gentle while remaining incredibly easy to use—please have a look at our campaign page and check out our GitHub repository. Then join us for an AMA on Crowd Supply's Discord server at 1pm Pacific Time today, Wednesday, June 24th! Read the full update.
