March Update 2019

We have officially moved!

Our new warehouse space is located in NE Portland and we share it with a number of other Portland based companies. The space we have is 10 times the size of the tiny office where the two of us developed and tested the Nautilus.

Once we are all set up, we plan to look into open houses and workshops for the local community.

You can now reserve a place in the queue for the first round of production. We aim to begin production in March after we move into our new space (more about that below). Reservations are $150 and will guarantee you a printer from our first production run. Reservations are limited, so make sure to purchase your spot before they run out!

The front frame panel now goes top to bottom and the door is inset into this panel. This increases the rigidity of the printer. Additionally, I have opted for an all-black design in this iteration, as black printed parts are easier to produce without cosmetic defects I decided that I want the acrylic to match the printed parts, so a matte black acrylic will be used.

It was challenging to devise a belt clamping mechanism in this new quite confined space, but I've got something that has been working well so far.
