Push the budget a bit and get the 4 silver, its the only one with an integrated touch screen and has superview mega wide angle setting, which makes you look like you're going well fast.

My waterproof Sony phone isn't quite as waterproof as advertised,  learned that the hard way. Consider them 'splashproof',  it's no gopro.

Steerers already trimmed, we have some pretty steep hills around here (+ fat and weak), so the front mech stays too.

I'd go fully destickered on any other bike, but the frame cost me a bloody fortune, so i dont want anyone to be in any doubt about that, ill try with the rims, etc though.

I got some pikes for my chameleon, feel like they're in an entirely different league than my old revelations and look massive to my 32mm adjusted eyes.

also generally looking a bit shabby, thinking about getting it resprayed matt black and pink frame/wheel stickers, danny mac style?:

Work for a small product design consultancy, though what we do is more engineering based, lots of injection mouldings, fabrication, mechanical design, electronics, etc. Most agencies will take an idea, loosely cad it up, visualise it and send you on your way, usually for it to fail at the production/compliance/management side. A lot of the work is medical at the moment since that's where the bigger money is, but get involved in pretty much every field from aerospace to dildos (really). The relatively unique thing about our co is that we oversee and manufacture stuff too, so we stay involved with projects from conception to wherever they end up. It's cool and a good ego buzz I won't lie, I get to work on an equal footing with some pretty impressive people, have my name on a tonne of patents and have done a bit of press and TV stuff. 'Glorified graphic designer' and 100% diva

Yeah it generates a tree like structure under (well, over) the part, it narrows down to a 0.3mm neck where it meets the surface.  You can snap it off pretty much in one lump, there are some little nipples left but they sand off easily.

Agree it doesn't make financial sense for most, but I spend a fortune on outsourced stuff and it's usually needed yesterday. I worked out it should have paid for itself in around 5mths.

It's fucking awesome G, you'd shit your pants.
Came assembled and ready to go, the European distro is just up the road in Ripon. Yes materials are expensive, a ltr of goo costs about 90 quid and you need to replace the tray every 2-3 ltrs at about 40 quid, so it's about 3 times the cost of 1kg eBay filament rolls.
Quality of builds and materials are far beyond sls and objet, on par with all but the very highest res sla.
Build area is 125x125x165mm, which sounds a bit small but in reality I could never print anything like that on our fdm machine without it warping, which obviously isn't an issue with this. Also it seems to be really easy to split big bodies up and stick them together.
There are 5-6 materials including flexible.
It's about twice as fast as the old printer, at the same volume.

Cost was a big concern for me, figured it might mean running off protos would be more of a consideration and less disposable,  but it's going to replace and improve 90% of the stuff we'd have sent off and paid through the nose for, the savings on that should offset the additional cost of the stuff I would've done on the old machine.

It's a big step from making computer boxes and running an online music shop, to fundamentally changing transport and car ownership. That said I don't think you're wrong,  but I don't think they'll succeed.

New sla printer, this thing blows my mind even more every time I use it. Cost just over 2k and I can't really see any difference between the output of this and the circa 1m machine the co I normally outsource prototyping to use.

You could've photoshopped on a few extra inches?

Edit... Unless you already have?  :-[

Hard one to answer really, ive done a full series of the pmba thing with a bunch of mates, by and large the tracks have been a bit shit and its been bloody expensive, but then again the weekend as a whole has been fun and i got a couple of reasonable results. I raced downhill a lot bitd and i never really enjoyed that with all the pressure and potential to fuck up a weekend with one bad line, etc, where i've actually really enjoyed the competition element to racing enduros, bit less at stake i guess? Probably 60% of the field can barely ride without stabilisers and the top 10% im fairly sure arent even human, so aim for the achievable gap in the middle. Will probably do a couple next year too, but not a full series, its been at the expense of the usual weekends away to lakes, scotland, wales, etc and they were generally more fun.
