xiangfumake: *** No rule to make target `bot.stl', needed by `bot.gp'.  Stop.02:47
xiangfuwhen I type 'make' under case/02:47
Action: xiangfu checking the README02:48
Action: xiangfu trying to make the anelok case.02:52
Action: xiangfu installing the latest freecad03:09
xiangfuFreeCAD 0.15, Libs: 0.15R4671 (Git)03:16
wpwrakxiangfu: you have them generate the .stl files  FreeCAD. launch freecad and then "import case". see also case/README04:43
wpwrakthe case-making process in case/ is designed for my mill, which uses the not very common RML-1 language (and not g-code)04:45
wpwrakif you want to mill the case, you can 1) find a mill that talks RML (i.e., most made by Roland DGA should), 2) use any other mill write a generator for g-code. probably not terribly difficult, but you'd need access to such a mill to test it. 3) replace my STL->toolpath process. if you're using a mill that's already in operation, chances are that such a process has already been set up there.04:49
wpwrakif you want to print the case, then you should first subtract the transparent window from the model. then you can print the rest of the case and add a "crystal-clear" window.04:50
wpwrakyou want to use translucent plastic so that the LED will shine through, even if it's outside the window. or get creative with the window :)04:51
xiangfuwpwrak: I will send out the 3 anelok samples today.06:21
wpwraknice. just a pity that vga is getting difficult to use, and there's a gazillion incompatible digital formats following it13:47
whitequarkthat's waay too expensive for what it does14:13
wpwrakhe has an "interesting" collection of support levels. if he's already setting up a full production process, why bother with selling bare PCBs ?14:38
wpwrakand yes, for not being a complete device (i.e., needs an rpi, too), it's a bit pricy14:39
DocScrutinizer05wpwrak: some suckers messed up http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Qi14:56
DocScrutinizer05I just praised Qi over uBoot-me-too-OS to pandora/pyra devels, then noticed the wikipage is a mess14:57
