Thinbot Build Diary: Nozzle outlet

Originally, I designed a lovely outlet for the nozzle on Thinbot to swirl all the ingredients together as they hit the glass, ready to print on a 3d printer.

Then I found out it would cost 200 bucks to print it. Hence the redesign to the chiller/nozzle with the stainless tubes passing through the cocktail-shaker chilling tank.

I did, however, want to keep the swirling-together functionality, which I'm accomplishing with short bent pieces of tubing on the outlet end of the nozzle.

I got word that one set of pumps (the emergency backup aquarium dosing pumps, shipping from Tel Aviv) has shipped. For now, though, we are off to Gallifrey later this afternoon!
