Some of the remaining changes for uRADMonitor model D included finalising the firmware and identifying a few better alternatives for the LCD bezel. Should the indieGogo campaign reach it’s stretch goal, we’ll also see a GPS module added to this unit, and an internal antenna for a more compact design.
But getting back to the firmware, one important achievement was increasing the display speed:


A less bulky LCD bezel had to be designed, but this wasn’t an easy process, since several iterations had to be tried out, and the printer pushed to its limits with thin plastic layers:

Finally the results, making model D take maximum advantage of this new iteration:

More work is required on the firmware side, so make sure to follow our progress to see what we bring next.
