This is my first blog post as OSE’s new Product Lead – and I’d like to report that we are busy making progress. Our five Dedicated Project Visitors (DPVs) have just arrived a little over a week ago and have been put into the deep end of design work on the 6 in 60 Campaign. We have a week left on structural design of the 6 machines. We have ordered a large shipment of steel, and will begin initial welding and cutting next week. We still need to design the hydraulics and controls – and order the hydraulic components. Check out some of the designs that we’ve been working on:
You can join us. We will be continuing this weekend with our Design Sprints. Download the Sketchup files – Sketchup is free and universally accessible on all platforms including Wine in Linux. If you have a 3D printer – we encourage you to print out the parts, assemble them, and share your videos. Rob Kirk, our Documentation Manager – is preparing a collaborative video editing platform, stay tuned. For the source files, see my work log, Leandra’s Log, Chris DeAngelis Log, Cory Log, Lucas Log, and Jordan Log – and see our Dashboard for status briefs.
