Hello Peopoly Community,
As we gear up for an exhilarating end to the year, we've got some thrilling updates to share with you. From production advancements to new product concepts and our upcoming presence at SMRRF 2023, there’s a lot happening at Peopoly!
Our team has been diligently working on quality control and test runs to ensure every part of the Magneto X meets our high standards. We're excited to show you a sneak peek of the parts fresh from the factories, all lined up and ready for assembly. Below pictures from last week.
All parts for the Magneto X production are in place and ready for assembly. However, we've decided to temporarily pause the process. In our initial assembly using the mass production components, we encountered some printing inconsistency at lower speeds that did not existed in pre-production model. Our dedicated team immediately launched into an exhaustive investigation, dedicating long hours every day to identify the root cause.
By Friday night, our engineering team had a breakthrough. They pinpointed the need for updates to one of the PCB boards within the driver system used for mass production. This vital improvement, while crucial for optimal performance, will lead to an estimated delay of about 10-15 days, shifting our anticipated timeline to mid-December. We're committed to transparency and will keep you updated at every stage.
We extend our heartfelt thanks to the Klipper community for their assistance and insights during this process. Your collaborative spirit has been instrumental in helping us refine the Magneto X.
【Strong Magneto X Table Concept】
We're continually seeking ways to elevate your 3D printing experience. Our newest innovation is a custom-designed table specifically for the Magneto X. Robust and heavy, it includes a screw mount on the frame for secure printer placement, along with extra storage space beneath. We're considering offering this as a DIY kit for convenient shipping. Designed to use the same extrusion as the Magneto, it will seamlessly match in both color and style. You can easily source panels locally using our design diagrams. We’re eager to hear your feedback on this idea!【0.6mm Extrusion 】
We’ve received numerous inquiries about the performance of the 0.6mm nozzle. After fine-tuning the hotend and melt zone, we're thrilled to report a flow rate exceeding 70mm^3/s with selected filaments. Our tests with the flow calibration model in Orca Slicer are yielding encouraging outcomes. While we’re still perfecting to reduce a bit of stringing, the potential for fast printing is impressive – not only achieving over 700mm/s with a 0.4mm nozzle but also surpassing 300mm/s with a 0.6mm nozzle. The 0.6mm nozzle offers an immediate enhancement in part strength without needing to switch filament types, often accompanied by a notable decrease in total print time.
【SMRRF 2023 - Meet Us There!】
We are excited to attend SMRRF 2023, hosted by our friends at E3D. This event is not only a tribute to Sanjay but also an opportunity to showcase the latest Magneto X. We plan to demonstrate live printing, highlighting its ability to maintain high speeds and flow rates, even with a 0.6mm nozzle. And we will bring the table concept too so we can printing in a stable manner.
Stay tuned for more updates, and we hope to see many of you at SMRRF 2023!
