Making some progress on the shell.. http://derekburgess.com/images/product/camera_shell.jpg
01:02
spacecadet
and for context. http://derekburgess.com/images/product/digi_cam_cad.jpg
01:05
Spirit532
that looks neat spacecadet
01:05
Spirit532
your own machine shop?
01:06
spacecadet
Kinda of- www.plethora.com, I do factory control UX/UI
01:07
spacecadet
I've been in contact with Sebastian, but heads down at work and on this prototype. Havent been in the IRC much.

Spirit532
"Try Plethora and Receive $250 in Free Milling" makes me think you're in the "if you have to ask, you can't afford it" range of pricing
01:09
spacecadet
Actually, what we do is limited run. So unless you own a machine, it's very affordable.
01:09
Spirit532
I own a 3040 router...
01:09
spacecadet
We give away machining to lower the risk and you get 2-3 parts out of it.
01:09
Spirit532
hides
01:10
spacecadet
:/
01:10
Spirit532
I guess if you need serious machining, money is not an object
01:11
spacecadet
I pulled the CAD file from your github for the sensor mount- Our auto quoting system said $80
01:11
spacecadet
for 1
01:11
spacecadet
A production shop wont make you 1 and wont charge you $80
01:11
Spirit532
my github?
01:12
spacecadet
Apertus repo.
01:12
Spirit532
right
01:12
Spirit532
$80?
01:12
Spirit532
the little gifs showed hundreds
01:12
spacecadet
Larger part with more features.
01:13
spacecadet
shorter turnaround time
01:13
spacecadet
We make stuff in 3 days but thats pricy, Moving that out to 15 days, drops the price by 50%
01:14
spacecadet
Im not trying to sell you the product, Im trying to make a custom camera..
01:15
Spirit532
I see
01:15
Spirit532
what machines do you run?
01:16
spacecadet
HAAS VF6SS
01:16
spacecadet
A couple UMC750's
01:20
Spirit532
I see
01:23
spacecadet
Whats your role with Apertus?
01:23
Spirit532
slightly broke observer that got overtake by life instead of contribution
01:24
Spirit532
that is also slowly designing a much faster high speed camera
01:24
spacecadet
what shutter speed?
01:25
Spirit532
up to 1/100kth or thereabouts
01:25
Spirit532
2368x1080 @ 1000fps
01:25
Spirit532
1280x864 @ 5kfps
01:25
Spirit532
(different sensors, possibly easy to change)
01:26
spacecadet
what resolution at 100k?
01:26
Spirit532
shutter speed?
01:26
Spirit532
doesn't matter
01:26
Spirit532
you're thinking of frame rate, and that requires more math than my brain can process right now(at 4:26 AM local time)
01:27
spacecadet
you said 1/100,000th?
01:27
Spirit532
yeah, the exposure can be arbitrary
01:27
Spirit532
I can do 1/10kth exposure at 1 frame per second.
01:27
spacecadet
ah ok
01:28
jucar
left the channel
01:28
spacecadet
Yeah, I was thinking frame rate, I assumed you were speaking in fps when you said 1/100kth
01:29
Spirit532
that'd be unreasonable
01:30
spacecadet
Well cool
01:30
Spirit532
the HS camera I currently own does 64x64 @ 105kfps for 7 seconds
01:30
Spirit532
you'd need in-situ storage on the sensor for this kind of speed, and that limits the frame count, and the cost goes orders of magnitude through the roof
01:30
Spirit532
(if you want high resolution)
01:30
spacecadet
yeah, understandable.
01:31
Spirit532
but 1280x864 @ 5000 fps is still awesome
01:31
spacecadet
Are you more on the product design/engineering side or computation?
01:31
Spirit532
one-man-band so far
01:31
Spirit532
though I'd be on all of it if I managed to get funding for something this insane
01:32
spacecadet
Is there a physical prototype?
01:32
Spirit532
not yet
01:33
spacecadet
So how does it exist?
01:33
Spirit532
there's a large hoop to jump - if I want a POC for investors, I need to make it using readily available hardware(otherwise prototype costs will be unreasonable), and that means buying an absolute overkill $4500 dev board
01:33
Spirit532
which is an order of magnitude too powerful for this(ish)
01:36
Spirit532
and I am absolutely not doing crowdfunding because I am simply unaware of large issues that might come up during development that would require more money
01:36
spacecadet
You will get there, for now I have to run. Thanks for chatting.
01:37
Spirit532
See ya.
