Design Build Test Repeat

Voluntarily cast upon the waves of outrageous fortune, this lowly geek flops from peak to peak of the technological ocean. Linux, Windows, C, Ruby, Python and embedded systems all attempt to pull our stalwart hero down. Will he survive alone or will the lifeboat of corporate servitude be too tempting.

I can change the world… well a web page anyway!!!

Via have released a design of one of their ultra small laptops under CC. I tried to download the CAD files but something was wrong. I contacted them through the site and got an email back from Tim Brown, International Marketing Manager (straight to the top with me; no messing with minions there) who said that I had to register first, an instruction that was on the site, but not clear. Anyway I went to the site today and they have removed the registration for download req. so now you just have to accept the CC license and download away.

But the files are in Pro E format, not a package that most people have lying around. I’ve suggested that they supply the designs as Rhino 3D files as Rhino provide a free evaluation download. We’ll see how that goes.
