We got most the machining of the crucible done now. We just need to poke 3 small holes in the sides of it and we are done machining the very hard Alumina!
That said we have to wait for the bits to arrive – should be tomorrow. Then we can put the heater coils in and test fire it pretty soon after.
Let the glass flow, let it flow!
Note the nozzle currently protrudes too far – it will get cut in the near future.
The rest of our printer is currently sitting around waiting for this super hot end and we can’t wait to let it have it.
