Designing for a modular approach, or design for different versions of a product for a whole range of 3D printers. We chose to use the modular approach as it is logical and allows our customers the most amount of freedom.
So here is the design story of how we decided the way to design the Nimble and the reasoning behind these decisions.
Looking back over the last year, overall, we are quite proud of what we achieved. There have been a few hiccups but we think we've managed them relatively well. We still are surprised when we hear some customers have been reluctant to ask for support.
3D Printing and prototyping. It seems that these 2 things go hand in hand. Here is a brief description how we used prototyping and additive manufacturing in the development of the Nimble and in delivering it as a product. Read More
There are multiple reasons why you may want to install a Nimble. It could be weight, banishing bowden, better retraction, flexible filaments, simpler filament changing or simply because you think it's nifty.
Ed installed it mainly to save weight. In the process he found another reason to install a Nimble.
Apparently you think we are great, but recently we've heard from a small handful of you of some problems. We had to dig deeper. This is our dive into the issues found when using the Nimble in its natural habitat. Read More
How do the Nimble and the Nimble C/C relate to each other and how to make a C/C out of a Nimble. Simple questions but surprisingly hard to explain. In this post we give it our best shot. Read More
We are looking at other areas for our next step. Besides 1 or 2 printers we are working on, we are delving deep in the various ideas for hot ends. From the "standard" hot end to interesting new ideas that are happening in the 3D printing world. Read More
