We have had a great summer! Lots of travelling and plenty of machine tinkering.

All of the finalized inner components has landed and it is time to build our design. It has been quite a lot of work to find the right vendors for the right parts. Because no one has made something like this before, almost everything is custom. 

Major inner parts has been CNC milled out from solid blocks of aluminum, many has been laser cut, some 3D printed and all electronics mounted in-house. 

First part of the machine is already mounted. What you see in the model below is the skeleton of our Drizzle machine and the distillation stage attached. 

Delivery of the extruded plates covering the machines is delayed until end of September. That will be the final component we need to add before it is fully assembled. Fortunately there is a lot of work to be done with fine tuning our firmware to handle the extraction process smoothly.

Next post will be a video of the unit running a distillation cycle.
