Just wanted to drop in and say I was still alive. This Apple accessory project is whacking me. The mechanical engineer for the fabrication company that produces lots of Apple stuff screwed up the drawings so an iPAD doesn't actually fit. Also when we had the parts 3D printed they fell apart from being so thin in places.
The 3D printing place never noticed the thin walls, their finish wasn't good and their touch-up left crap everywhere...but they still charged top dollar.
And now the industrial designer is hard to reach.
Since I know some mechanical engineering I suddenly have to do some of this design work that I never bid on.
Of course there are other customers waiting.
And another one just approved a high bid and said he'd send a check in a week or so for most of the bill...hope he delays some, I need some sleep.
I also just found out what happens when Build Tak wears out...the entire raft comes up at once and becomes one with the hot end. Luckily I got it off, now trying to get the backing from the Build Tak off the borosilicate glass. I've got it soaking in orange oil and have it partly scraped off so far.
Oh, my eye is better. I have a permanent gnat hovering around to the lower right now, most of the time I don't notice it. I go back to the doctor shortly for a follow up just to make sure all is well.
Standing on the edge of reality... (me)
