Impressive. Thanks for the link.
I don't see how an individual could build such printer now. Maybe in a year or two with some open source kits.

There are posts on www.instructables.com where people build DLP (projector) or SLA (laser) resin vat printers for less than $100. I think the biggest cost is the DLP - but I got one for free!

Each 3D printing technology has its own pros and cons. SLA (or the DLP variant) printers are faster and have higher resolution, but the plastic tends to be more brittle and degrades faster over time (especially when exposed to sunlight). To me, that sounds okay for prototyping, but not so good for the finished product.

Yes, FDM printers are slower and have a lower resolution, but they're also cheaper and the finished parts are less brittle and degrade less quickly than SLA printed parts. You can speed up the printer by using a larger nozzle and thicker layers (yes, even lower resolution), and the surface finish can be improved by post-processing (e.g., an epoxy coating).

Either way, the final production method doesn't have to be what I use for prototyping. In fact, ideally I'd be able to use aluminium, as that would double as an RF-shield.

The guys behind the PowerPC notebook project that are collaborating with ACube are asking for a last round of support.
The laptop will be equipped, among other features, with a PowerPC CPU NXP T2080, an M.2 connector for the SSD, an MXM connector on a PCI-e 3.0 lane for the video card, and will have space for two DDR3L modules.

Here the latest post on their blog: Electrical Schematics as a present.

As of today, they reached the 67% of the required €12,600 goal for delivering the electrical schematics.

Here the donation campaign page, you may use PayPal.

They just launched another project for which they are looking for volunteers: the Open Source Laptop Chassis Designs

Here a simplified diagram of what the electrical schematics will try to achieve [click to enlarge]

If you're part of the Power Progress Community then please consider using Patreon in addition to fund the project.

So that if the goal isn't met after this milestone announcement (new wave of donations dies) then that the funding doesn't become stagnant and the project eventually get cancelled.



If you're not aware of Patreon, it is a website where a individual or organization can create a account and others can then donate to that account on a timely basis (eg weekly, monthly) or per milestone.



I think that multiple 10 Euro donations per month would aid the funding significantly.

It's not as much as a couple hunderd Euro donations per milestone but at least the project eventually will get funded.


Best of luck!

Thank you for the advice.
Having a look at it now, not bad indeed, but our choice was not to have any intermediary (and thus, their fee), apart from PayPal that fulfill the required needs.

The fund is not stagnant at all, as what we collected so far is already being passed to the engineer for the mobo design, and periodically we check together with ACube the current advancements.
