morning everyone!

Good morning Bertl :)
11:30
SashaC
How are you today?
11:30
Bertl
how's going? every fine down under?
11:31
Bertl
fine so far, thanks for asking ... btw, we finally got snow :)
11:31
SashaC
Yes, things are fine. I'm still a little jet-lagged, and very much missing being in Europe
11:31
SashaC
The snow was only a few weeks late ;)

back
12:14
se6astian
had a meeting with guys running a CNC and 3d printing business
12:15
se6astian
very good ideas
12:15
se6astian
regarding the Axiom enlcosure and prototype concept printing
12:16
SashaC
Can you describe or summarise their ideas?
12:21
se6astian
using two L profiles of 100x100x10mm to form a rectangle for example
12:21
se6astian
these aluminum profiles are cheaply widely available
12:21

12:22
se6astian
and could be the basis for our CNC cutting forms
12:22
se6astian
which is much more efficient than cutting huge amounts of materil away from a solid 10x11cm aluminum block
12:24
Bertl
of course, it would even make sense to create a custom profile for larger quantities
12:24
guesst
if you can join them some way.. otherwise two Ls have very different mechanical properties
12:25
SashaC
I see. Are you also investigating methods for 3D printing parts of the enclosure with these guys?
12:25
Bertl
in which case it probably would be more a C or O
12:25
guesst
(and there are rectangular profiles too.. might not be so common, but still better than solid block)
12:25
se6astian
custom aluminum extrusion is possible but only makes sense at high volume
12:27
se6astian
3d printing for a physical prototype yes
12:27
se6astian
not for production though
12:29
se6astian
The two Ls would allow people to make custom modules much easier than if we used a custom extrusion which again only we would have direct access to
12:30
guesst
is there another $10k product which is customized in so lowend way?
12:31
guesst
offering a universal box with no holes might be better idea
12:32
Bertl
maybe, we'll see ...
12:33
se6astian
I ll draw up a concept again to see what is possible and what is not with the two Ls, we will see more clearly then
12:34
Bertl
good idea
