    By no means a complaint - just checking if the invoices have been sent to everyone, as I didn't get mine? Eager to pay for this! :D

    Maybe a list with each member`s payment status would be appreciated - deposit payed, invoice sent and so on...

    Morning everyone!

    Not much to show for a video this week, just the arrival of a few airbrushes and some paint filters. As for model progress, here is where we are currently at.

    I’m choosing not to run a list. I have a file created for each payment plan or fulfilled depsit and final payment from each customer.
    Each invoice sent out as a part of the payment plan has been indexed as to which payment it is. If there is any question in regards
    to how many payments are left, you need only refer to that.

    Hi Everybody!

    I've been messaging skylu3Design and the model is beautiful. We are almost complete with the exterior, and after that will just require some accomodations on the interior to allow for the electronics system.


    I should have some beauty shots for you all on Friday.

    We are close to 3D printing and molding, and just want to make sure everything is as perfect as can be prior to printing.

    Videos should start flowing regularly as of the beginning of July.

    As promised, here is the current progress of the model.

    The barrel “muffler” will still need to be detailed, of course.

    Skylu3Design and i have been going back and forth with the interior mechanism design, making allowances for specific components, and seeing
    how everything interacts spatially. Not very sexy, but important nonetheless.

    i had done preliminary engineering prior to the model going together, but much of it was theoretical in relation to component sizing.
    The blaster is smaller than you’d think, and a much tighter fit for everything. I had to nix the green microswitches because they didn’t fit.

    Here is the completed exterior,


    We are waiting for some small electronic components to arrive so we can make necessary adjustments to the model interior to ensure a proper and well thought out fit.

    Rocketeer will be printing several components on his Form2 that don’t interact with any of the in-progress pieces, so i will be able to get ahead by molding and casting these components. I’ll post videos of my process at that point.

    Hello everyone!

    i’m currently talking with my spring supplier, and am in the process of ordering the custom size and specified springs that i need. I’m going to be mounting one on either side of the trigger, each one with a service life of approx 100,000 actions.

    i am currently waiting on 2mm brass rod that will serve as the primary trigger pivot, as well as the silver and brass microswitch that will activate the solenoid.

    I finally received the components i’ve been waiting for to complete interior allowances in the model.

    I’ll be posting a video when i get back home tomorrow to show everything off.

    Today’s update:

    The following items that i had been waiting for finally arrived.

    9V Industrial Duracell Batteries
    9V Battery Terminals
    capacitors
    trigger microswitches
    on/off switches
    band saw blades
    aluminum tape
    1100 watt hot plate

    I had originally ordered the 12V 23A batteries, as well as the holders but the
    holders were incapable of maintaining continuity, so i decided to move over to
    the 9V as they are more user friendly to replace. I had considered using rechargable
    lithium ion batteries, but on further inspection found that without a good power management
    system, they are prone to overcharging which would bring a level of liability. The size of the
    power management system would have taken up much needed space inside.

    Now that Skylu3Design has the needed measurements, he can complete the interior of the model
    and as soon as that is complete, Rocketeer will get started on printing of larger components.

    i’m going to be posting a video of the printed pieces as well as the molding process.

    i’m aiming to make several sets of each mold to aid in the production process.

    Next video will come soon.
