whitequarkDocScrutinizer05: have you ever found any accomodation?16:30
DocScrutinizer05in HH? sorry I can't make it16:31
DocScrutinizer05I wonder if a flight for Saturday morning and back on Sunday noon was maybe worth it. No hotel, I could stay up over the night16:39
DocScrutinizer05this would limit the whole expense to a quite manageable ~250 bucks16:40
DocScrutinizer05plus ticket for the event16:40
DocScrutinizer05but then, while it's manageable expense, it's questionable benefit for Neo90016:42
whitequarkI see16:43
DocScrutinizer05unless of course I could make some new contacts, e.g. for 3D wizards who could produce the spacer frame for us16:43
whitequarkhm, what spacer frame?16:44
DocScrutinizer05the case extender which allows us to make the thing a 2.8mm thicker16:46
whitequarkso you want it designed in CAD16:46
whitequarkand presumably made of... of what?16:46
whitequarkoh, so 3D printing16:47
DocScrutinizer05whatever works16:47
whitequarkunless you have some uber cool 3d printer, it will look and feel like shit16:47
DocScrutinizer05CNC milling, 3G printing16:47
DocScrutinizer05yup, prolly16:47
whitequarkSLS would work (not abs though), makerbot-level things definitely will not16:48
DocScrutinizer05I'm no expert of those mech things16:48
whitequarkand milling it sounds like you'd have to throw out 99% of material16:48
DocScrutinizer05but I think making it of whatever plastic, with CNC, is probably the best option16:49
whitequarkcomplex shape too...16:49
DocScrutinizer05I don't care much about the 99% throw out material16:50
whitequarksemi-related, I just received my HDPE sheets16:50
whitequarkthey do not feel anything like any other polyethylene I've seen at all16:50
DocScrutinizer05after all it's still a sheet of just 65 * 120 * 3.5mm16:51
DocScrutinizer05doesn't matter when you cut 99% of material away from it16:51
DocScrutinizer05(I however guess it's only 70%)16:52
DocScrutinizer05well, maybe 8016:52
wpwrak(spacer) i suppose neither side is completely flat, i.e., only broken by holes but without lowered "plateaus" or such ?23:59
