Hey everybody. Work on amending the design has stopped. Work may resume in 2 weeks time ish*. Reason for delay (not like anyone cares) is that im on holiday in japan. Will update you soon. For now… im stepping into to the shadows relaxing. Dont worry everyone… the i promise that the public version will be release in a few weeks ish. Along with a individual simple pen clip for the V.

V is still taking it’s time to arrive, so there is no need to hurry :wink:

Enjoy your holidays <3

Hey everyone. Should i try injection moulding with the case? Like rubber, silicone, ect.


#50

yes the material has to be more flexible. not that hard plastic stuff you send to me…


#51

Soft material will dampen a fall better, so I’d say it could be worth a shot.

Hi everyone.
Just wanna update yall w/ what’s happening atm. So far… the old silicone which i had lying around… is kinda too flixble and brittal. The prototypes kept on tearing when i released the from the 3d prined moulds. Also it is very hard to sand the insides of the mould due to its small size, layer details are being replicate on the silicone part too. I’m gonna have too go out and get some new industrial silicon from like Bunnings… lol. I have considered using acetone but i think it will comprise the seal of the mould. So any suggestions?
Uh… i couldn’t find rubber(liquid) locally so the next stop gap thing im gonna try is hot glue. Hot gule sticks are flexible yet durable like rubble but it is not as soft as silicon.
I’ll update yall soon ish*, ray

Oh yeh btw… im running very low on filament… I’ve just ordered like 2kgs… its gonna take atleast 2weeks for shipping.

It’s commendable you’re keeping at it, and I for one would be interested in purchasing a set (for a reasonable price!). Community feedback seems to be dying down.

Just hope your hard work and efforts are not undermined by the current company situation and the community also finds it useful.

That being said, if you’re doing it primarily for yourself then no matter what, your hard work is not in vain.

hi everybody,
if anyone has experience with injection moulding in the community, may you kindly review this mould design? i haven’t tested it yet but the design is significantly more complex than version 1. are there any issues i need rectify before the 2nd test in about a ±week time.

UPDATE:
hi everybody.


so 1 out of 2 of the rolls of filament has arrived. mould 1 got printed in blue abs and it didn’t turn out so good. some components of the mould warped because the heat bed settings weren’t right and print orientation. this created gaps larger than i would’ve liked. however, i will go ahead with the silicon injection moulding tomorrow despite the flaws. currently, the mould 2 is being printed in abs and will be tested (injection moulded) before christmas. this mould design is significantly more simple In 2019, i think i will redesign the bottom components of the case as i’m still not 100% satisfied yet. if anyone has ideas where the case doesn’t compromise on the kickstand’s function, please let me know. i will* do another little update is a weeks time with the results.

ththththhththththhat’s allll folks!
