hi there

Hi
12:58
luk53
I just discovered this project... looks really nice!
12:59
luk53
Since the web is not so much up to date, when should be Beta avaliable? Or does somebody already has it for testing?

we recently finished the first Early Beta prototype
13:01
Bertl
(it was showcased on NAB/Linuxwochen)
13:01
Bertl
and we are currently preparing the first production run for the Early Betas
13:02
luk53
Thats from where are the pictures on web I guess, right.
13:03
luk53
So I presume that it can be ready by the end of the year... I understand these things take lot of time..
13:04
luk53
Anyway its greate idea and it is interesting I did not notice there is some similar project...
13:05
Bertl
as I said, the first Betas (not the final ones) will be ready soon for developer (backer)
13:05
Bertl
the "final" version will probably happen end of the year and be sold as development kit
13:05
luk53
ok, is there still possibility to participate?
13:07
Bertl
you can always participate, it is a community project, you can even build your own, all the designs are open
13:08
se6astian
and you can join the waiting list to fill in when a voucher is returned by a backer
13:08
Bertl
but if you mean the crowd funding, that one is over, but we keep a waiting list, in case somebody returns their voucher for a Beta at cost, then somebody on the waiting list can jump in
13:08
luk53
I probably missed the location of HW data (cad, gerber, bom etc)
13:09
se6astian
we have a github repo
13:09
se6astian
but as some things are still being ironed out its not all committed yet
13:10
Bertl
luk53: http://vserver.13thfloor.at/Stuff/AXIOM/BETA/
13:11
Bertl
here are the latest hardware designs for the Beta stackup
13:11
Bertl
(they will show up on github shortly)
13:12
Bertl
you can also order the PCBs via OSHpark, let me know if you want to, we haven't shared the designs on OSHpark yet because we haven't finalized them
13:15
luk53
Thank you
13:15
luk53
I will take look at it!
13:23
Bertl
you're welcome!

LordVan
hi
18:05
Bertl
hey
18:09
LordVan
I was having some trouble with the PCB .stl file .. is anyone here who could convert it to a .step or iges for me?
18:10
Bertl
se6astian left a few minutes ago, but when he is back, he will be able to take care of that, I guess
18:11
LordVan
ah typical for my timing ^^
18:11
LordVan
the thing is Solid Edge doesn'T do well with .stl files cuz they are meshes and not solids..
18:12
Bertl
well, a closed (watertight) mesh will define a volume, no?
18:13
LordVan
i looked around abit
18:14
LordVan
apparently no
18:14
LordVan
https://community.plm.automation.siemens.com/t5/Solid-Edge-Forum/Convert-STL-to-solid/td-p/270915
18:16
Bertl
MeshLab is mentioned in the thread, maybe give that a try
18:16
LordVan
yeah been downloading that just now
18:17
Bertl
I know for sure that it can fix meshes for 3D printing
18:17
LordVan
yeah but the features list says this:
18:17
LordVan
import:PLY, STL, OFF, OBJ, 3DS, COLLADA, PTX, V3D, PTS, APTS, XYZ, GTS, TRI, ASC, X3D, X3DV, VRML, ALN
18:17
LordVan
export:PLY, STL, OFF, OBJ, 3DS, COLLADA, VRML, DXF, GTS, U3D, IDTF, X3D
18:18
LordVan
but i will try it anyway ;)
18:19
LordVan
maybe it can at least fix them and then it works to convert to solid in SE .. we'll see
18:19
Bertl
there are also a bunch of online 3D converter
18:20
LordVan
wow it looks completely different (in colour) ^^
18:20
LordVan
i tried some
18:20
LordVan
they can import stl
18:20
LordVan
but not export as step,iges
18:20
LordVan
only as other mesh formats it seems
18:20
LordVan
-- at least the ones i tried so far.
18:21
Bertl
a google search also gives FreeCad as STL -> STEP option
18:23
LordVan
yes
18:24
LordVan
but it made someones 20mb stl file into 300MB step and then after 1,5 h they killed solid edge haha
18:24
Bertl
yeah, I expect the data to be huge
18:24
Bertl
after all, the 3D cad cannot guess what primitives were the source for the STL file
18:25
Bertl
it can just take the triangles and build an object from that
18:25
LordVan
yeah
18:25
LordVan
which is .. well
18:25
LordVan
giving InStep a try
18:25
LordVan
but it seems the free version is limited so will see
18:26
Bertl
and I'm off for a nap ... bbl though

k
21:15
LordVan
all i got from those trial software things is that one installed a chinese version of "kingsoft" "antivirus" ..
21:15
LordVan
what a pain to get rid of that again ..
21:15
LordVan
o.o ^^ i will definitely wait for se6astian ;)
21:16
LordVan
if you see him before me could you ask him to make a step file of the PCB for me so i can finish the sheet metal case CAD?
