Is that an LCD interface? And two steam wands? So refreshing for body shapes to depart from the conventional boxy design.

Good job the render is over a year old then....what do you think would improve the looks?

I am not a designer and it’s a personal taste of course (I like how LMLM looks like in person, for example).

 

I don’t like the leaning forward design as it looks like it’s vomiting Bender from Futurama. There’s nothing that balances the forward leaning body. The diagonal line in the body is just emphasising that.

 

There’s also far too much going on with various shapes and nothing to contribute to the balance. The knobs/steam wand just looks out of place as well. Rocket, for example, has round legs, levers, etc. that suit somewhat oversized round knobs.

 

To me it’s just a shed-made machine out of spare parts. Not to be confused with KVDW bicycle machine, of course...

Shouldn’t we start a new thread on this, CFUK help needed designing and developing new lever machine, here’s a novelty do some beta testing, get some out to forum members at a “reduced” price and then get ACS to sell direct on the forum as ex demo machines! Wait..........

One of the reasons I choose the Nota over many other machines, was the fact it was not stainless steel. The thought of all that polishing makes me shudder!

Your welcome too do that CC, think you will have a long wait for a machine though....I'm not holding my breath. You are of course implying the Minima (which was the only machine actually beta tested by 4 forum members at a reduced price), is being sold on the forum as ex demo machines? That's not actually true is it, no ex demo Minimas have been sold by ACS. You must have a huge problem with ACS or me for some reason?

Oh I thought ACS sell the Vesuvius, don’t have a problem with them or you ( they should be forum sponsors though, apologies if they already are?)

I certainly told them they needed to be and they were. I don't know if it's expired yet, whether they renewed it or not, or forgot during the factory move....you need to ask them/Glenn if they are still advertisers if you have a concern.

 

I don't really get involved in any of that. If they are not advertisers, then they shouldn't be selling any Vesuvius machines on the forum/forum deals and simply sell them via the normal retail routes.

Well that machine looks like a very early Commodore Green screen computer monitor with knobs and levers....

30 dollar pitcher that ended up costing me £70 . Not happy! Although the jug itself is nice...

 

I really should have just bought a Jibbijug.

I have no idea what shows on the profiles, like I say I don't really enjoy getting involved in that sort of thing (admin and all that is boring) and have no idea how Glen manages things regarding renewal reminders, or whether they get sent. Certainly Paolo has been tied up for months with the factory move and getting the new factory ready so they (and all the equipment and people) can move in. I have not communicated with him for quite a while and guess that he would not have it uppermost in his mind. I sent him a skype message to see if he has renewed...but really it's down to @Glenn and him, not me....

 

I simply wanted to clear up the point that the machine Betas were for the Minima and that is being sold through retailers.....not a few cheap betas to forum members to then be sold on the forum later as a production machine. The Minima is a machine with retailers and being actively sold by them. Unlike the V which wasn't really actively being sold and would simply form an expensive collection of parts in a factory inventory..this ended up benefiting forum members greatly and is a small production run hand built (very expensive to build) machine.

 

The 1 group Vostock render is a bit of an in joke really, it's a very old render the machine is quite different but exists only in cyberspace. It's years away. I am in fact still waiting for a steel girder built open test frame....for individual boiler and saturated lever group thermal tests. I don't expect that this side of Christmas either! If he waits long enough I will have my bus pass!
