GIGTANK - Week 8

Nohtal Partansky

We've been busy over here in Chattanooga. We're finishing up building, testing, and shipping our printers to our beta customers and we're happy to report that the printers are printing fantastically. Looking towards the next few months, we're excited about some new features we are developing for our upcoming short production run, setting up our business space, and taking on whatever challenges come out way.

We started printing a Hive from Starcraft last night and woke up to it in the morning. From the bottom of the creep to the top of the spines eveything turned out great. I think Kerrigan would be proud.

It's the Hive. We're definitely  going to have to print a Nexus soon, or maybe a few to scale hydras.

We drove down to Atlanta last weekend to deliver the first printer to our customer. It felt good getting our printers out the door and we're excited for the rest of you to get yours.

Best,

GIGTANK - Weeks 2 and 3

We've had two birthdays this week! CO.LAB was nice enough to surprise Nohtal and A.J. with cupcakes and a CO.LAB (feat. Startup Teams) cover of "Happy Birthday". If that wasn't enough, we had a great time in downtown Chattanooga to celebrate Nohtal's Birthday!

It's been a busy couple of weeks and we've been making good use of the space that Chattanooga State Community College are providing us. See our setup below!

Chattanooga State Community College is providing awesome resources and a generous amount of space for us.

We've almost received all the parts for our beta models and will soon be assembling the printers for our beta testers. It is very exciting as we will be providing our beta testers with the latest technologies including the all new E3D-v6 Hot ends!

GIGTANK - Week 1

Nohtal Partansky

Our team at Lathon is in Chattanooga, Tennessee! We were chosen as one of the 2014 GIGTANK startups to accelerate our growth and further develop the LATHON printer. The folks at The Company Lab are providing us with a variety of well learned mentors (technical, legal, entrepreneurial, financial, branding), state of the art equipment, and all the resources at our disposal to deliver our latest and greatest 3D printer to date for our Beta Testers.

We have started to receive parts and are in the beginning stages of the assembly and development of the beta models. We are very much looking forward to having our beta testers receive them and are excited to hear their experiences with the LATHON and help us further develop our production model! We will continue to update our blog on a weekly basis to give insights on our progress.

We have also created an instagram account where we will be posting photos of our time with GIGTANK and snapshots of our day. Follow us on instagram and twitter @lathonprinter !

We are developing our prototype for our beta testers. We have a lot of resources at our disposal thanks to GIGTANK!

Launching the Kickstarter

Nohtal Partansky

Today we launched the Kickstarter and as I am writing this it has been 9 hours with $12,830 funding! I am hoping we can get at least 30% by Tuesday to really give the project some momentum.

Kickstarting

The printer was looking great on film day! Props to Donald for hooking up the Iron Man Helmet with LEDs, definitely brings the mask to life.

The past several weeks we have been able to ramp up the kickstarter effort. Eventually it should be up and running. As of now we are exploring different more exotic uses of the LATHON.
