There is no set limit as of yet. Just be aware that since we're not anticipating makeing a lot of them, signing up is committing to the run. (I would not dare invest in the cost of prototyping it otherwise.)Are there still spots open for this? If so put me down for the full kit.
OK folks. This is where it gets real.
It's also where expenses will start to mount up in terms of R&D, with the ordering of various components and things that need to be tested, along with resin test prints and so on. So again, if you sign up, please make sure you can follow through. This will hopefully be ready Nov-Dec and I know lots of folks have extra expenses come Xmas, so make sure to set aside funds for this.
The above video is just a raw functionality test of the base mechanics. I didn't even install bearings or add lubricant because I wanted to see if the functionality was robust enough to work without any help, which it was, I'm happy to see.
I'll do a longer writeup with photos and post it in the build thread in the main forum soon, but I figured you all would want to see this video.
It's a MAJOR breakthrough and I'm very happy that it seems to work. (I still don't honestly know how I managed to get everything to fit!)
I am currently planning for a piezo buzzer. You can see it under the battery in the render a couple posts ago. There's no room for a proper sound board and speaker, but it should be able to do some 1980s sounding sawtooth waveform sounds! (It might be possible to get close to the "camera whine" effect in the film, but that's a sinus waveform, so it'll sound a little more 'buzzy' if that makes sense.)Looking great.....perhaps it will be a happy Christmas after all!!!!!
Just a quick question JOATRASH. We briefly exchanged the idea of a power up sound effect on this....will there be any room? Nice to have but not essential.
