Thank you so much to everyone who ordered the first run of developer kits! I have closed orders for now so that I can ship out the current ones and focus on the next design iteration. Once that is completed I will once again offer kits!
***THIS KIT IS ONLY INTENDED FOR EXPERIENCED MAKERS AND REQUIRES ACCESS TO A 3D PRINTER AND SOLDERING IRON. DO NOT BUY IF YOU DO NOT HAVE EXPERIENCE WITH THESE TOOLS AND RESIN-BASED 3D PRINTING. I WANT TO MAKE THE MOST ACCESSIBLE 3D PRINTER EVER, BUT THIS IS NOT IT, THIS IS JUST A STEP ALONG THAT PATH***
PLEASE VISIT HERE https://accessible3d.com/inspire-3d-printer.html TO LEARN ABOUT THE STATE OF THE PROJECT BEFORE ORDERING. A LOT MORE DEVELOPMENT IS REQUIRED, SO I DO NOT WANT ANYONE TO PURCHASE WITHOUT A FULL UNDERSTANDING OF THE CURRENT STATE OF THE PROJECT.
This Developer Kit includes all of the components (except those that are 3D Printed) that would allow you to build the current prototype of Inspire 3D Printer, hoping to be the cheapest 3D printer ever! In its current state, this kit is for a proof of concept, not a fully functional 3D Printer. Please visit https://accessible3d.com/inspire-3d-printer.html
to fully understand the current state and capabilities. I am primarily releasing this kit in order to raise money for the St. Jude School Kit as part of the Inspiration4 contest as I continue to develop the design.
The Kit will include everything pictured above:
1x ESP32 Microcontroller
1x 2.2' LCD Screen & SD Card Reader
20x UV LEDs
1x 28BYJ-48 Stepper Motor & Driver
1x MicroUSB Female Breadboard Adapter
30x M2 Bolts
30x M2 Hex Nuts (Not Pictured)
3x Small Breadboards
1x Pair of Protective Gloves
1x UV Protected Sun Glasses
25x Plastic BBs
1x Fresnel Lens
1x FEP Film (100mm x 70mm)
1x Insulated Wire (10 ft)
1x Aluminum Sheet (100mm x 75mm x 1mm)
Shipping Note: It may take me some time to get all of the kits shipped out depending on how many I end up selling. I am a college student who will need to manage courses along with shipping logistics and packing. I have already sourced and priced all parts, but some are not projected to arrive until late April or the very early part of May. If there is a significant number of orders or potential problems on the supplier side, this time frame may be delayed further. I am targeting to ship all kits during the end of April and the beginning of May. At the latest, I am committed to having kits shipped by the end of June. I will work to ship them as soon as possible and provide any updates as necessary. If that timeframe is too slow for you, I will be providing detailed instructions with affiliate links to acquire all of the parts on your own after I finish the next prototype iteration in March. These will not cost you anything, but will still raise money for the St. Jude School Program. If you choose to go this route, you will likely pay more for everything since you will be buying individual components. I will post it on the printer info page (https://accessible3d.com/inspire-3d-printer.html) when that is completed.
