Dear backers, 


Now our campaign officially ends. We would like to thank you for all of your support that brings us here. As many of you said, it is not an easy decision because many of you had been burned by other projects. We know how hard it is and what this kind of trust means. That is why we have been listening to all of your concerns carefully, being honest with you and trying our best to share as much information as possible. And we will continue doing so.

Most likely, your biggest concern still remains, that is whether we can manage to produce IVI and deliver it as we promised despite our limited experience in manufacturing. This is also our next challenge. But we strongly believe with all of your continuing support, help from professional agents, and talents from new employees, we can do it. And we will do it.

What's next?

1. Collect and sort out all of your questions and concerns and combine them in our development plan and then share with you in the update. 

2. Build a community where you can better share your feedback and suggestions. (We will send you a survey soon about which platform you would prefer for the community) Also, we would like to take this chance to thank all of those who have been helping answering new backers questions, just to name a few, Bryan, Mr. Mo, Tasogare, Zeelobby, Dan, and many more. All of your help make this a very engaging and friendly community. 

3. Release an update once a week. More up-to-date information will be shared with you in the following updates. 


Together, we are a team! Looking forward to our journey together!

[Testing] IVI prints with the 40 mm fans (50 mm/s VS 100 mm/s 300 VS mm/s)
almost 2 years ago – Thu, May 16, 2019 at 12:53:22 AM

Dear all, 


In this test, we printed the Gear Bearing with the 40 mm fans added to see if the added fans will affect the print quality in other way.  


 In order to maintain a uniform print reference, we still use 0.3 mm print head with 0.15 mm layer height and as requested we didn't print raft. 

The print results from 50 mm/s, 100 mm/s & 300 mm/s don't have much difference except that the gear bearing has a smoother rotation. 

Test #1

Printing speed: 50 mm/s

Printing temperature: 200℃
