Type A Machines Labs is Born

by Ben Honda Rottler September 22, 2014 2 Comments

Welcome to Type A Machines Labs, a new initiative.

As we are continually evolving our technology, we want to involve our community. With Labs, we will regularly release new projects for community feedback and input.

Our inaugural project is a new filament feeding system we have designed for the Series 1. It's almost ready for production but we would love community feedback, and also give our users a chance to use the new system.

The new feeder system allows for up to two spools to be attached to the Series 1 at once, as well as feed in horizontally, allowing the spool to feed more smoothly. 

Looking forward to hearing from you!

I have ben loosing too many projects to the currant feeding system. I am printing the parts as I type this. I am looking forward to testing this new feeding system out.

Yay! I’ve been meaning to design my own feed system for some time. Eager to see how this one works out.
