Re: Not allowed

All my little projects? Who has the time? At the moment I don't have time for all my little projects, as I have one big project. The Zesty Nimble. Setting up the company and the webshop is all consuming these days. Hence my lateness in replying, my apologies. I have been doing a few projects that ar...

Re: Not allowed

Correct, it is in bare bones a BI. They did have nice corners. Basically, the only thing that was really nice. Yes I am using a DuetWifi with Paneldue, but I will need to print a proper housing for it. This is just a quick little holder, not nearly good enough. The wall? Yes, it is a accurate scale ...

Not allowed

Hi good people, I don't think i am allowed to post a picture of my machine here. After all it is not a Rostock. Not even a honorary one. Besides, I don't think anybody wants to see the mess I made of mine. Development printer and all that. I am thinking about adding another small printer, but that i...

Re: The Zesty Nimble, in person.

Normally I call them Good people.
But in this case, I might choose a different term. Something a little less dangerous.

But I try, honest I do.

PS anybody want to buy a Nimble? They are cheaper these days.

The Zesty Nimble, in person.

Hello good people, Today we are showing off the Nimble, via the new Kickstarter Live function. This will give you an opportunity to get to know us a little better, see the Nimble in action and we might even open one up for you. We are hoping for a spirited discussion and for a lot of people. The tim...

Max 2 adapter for the Nimble

Hi All, The adapter designed for the Max 2 was judged to be wanting, by MH. So, we re-designed it and are pretty sure this one will pass muster. For now we put it in the Shapeways store, but once we go live we will also make the STL and STEP files available. https://www.shapeways.com/shops/zestytech...

Hi 626Pilot, Yes, we are pumping the message as much as we can, but we are already being accused of spamming at some places, so we have to proceed carefully. Last thing I want to do is antagonize people. I think you are right, we need to schedule another one for the US. It is hard to span 3 main tim...

Meh, we are trying, but we are in the slow zone. Every Kickstarter campaign has this but ours is a bit long.
I would love to see an uptick any day now.

Hi All, Was printing 3D Benchy's so I thought I would print a Voronoi version of that venerable test object. Some people were doubting the retraction effectiveness of the Nimble and I needed to prove it in action. http://zesty.tech/sites/zesty.tech/files/2016-11/paragraph/VorBenchy1.png The Benchy b...

The overall shape is good, I think I will want to see if there are tweaks needed in the support structure inside the Mad Hat, to support the Nimble.

When is 200 really 200?

Hi all, Is there a way to measure the actual speed a nozzle is making while printing? The reason I ask is that we posted a video of what was supposed to be approx 300 mm/sec. At least, that is what the slicer and firmware told us. But comparing it to other videos, it seems to be a lot slower. I did ...
