IJF sent us these drawings to approve the positioning of the different shelves, and the stand for approval. The shelves can be positioned wherever and custom made to fit right and slide in and out after the S has been made in order to make the right adjusments, and fit the printer accurately and safely.
As we could only drill down as far as a few inches it wasn’t actually ideal to go with our original idea of securing the S to the floor for maximum safety. This meant we had to adjust the way in which the base looked. As well as this the electricity in our new chosen spot had to be coming from the floor. Which is visually nicer to avoid visible wires, but also meant the base needed some adjusting and a way to access the S from the S with a lock, and appropriate holes to feed wires through was also needed. The bottom of the S would be weighed down with as many weights as would make it safe and stable.

Streamline Fibreglass was the first manufacturers to get back to us and gave us lots of helpful advice on what we’d need to consider. Some examples below of things they have done.
They are situation in Stockport.

Fibreglass first is another company that got back to us with a cost estimation. Below are some examples of their bespoke designs. I found it interesting how on the piece the ‘Sculptor’ it mentions the use of galvanised steel bolts. Which is presumably what our would need to be bolted to the floor/a stand. It’s good to see that they have done similar projects that are in public domains.
Fibreglass first are situated in Cheshire.
One quote we received was from IJF Development LTD.
They specialise in GRP for many different styles of projects and in particular GRP bespoke design. Which is exactly what our S falls under.
Heres some images of the kind of work they have done in the past, that are under Bespoke Design category.
