Fuck You 3D Systems, You Are A Bunch Of Assholes!

I refer to this


Form Labs is a very small company that has built a 3D printer (called Form 1) of exceptional quality. The went to the community asking for help to take it to market. Their KickStarter project went exceptionally well and made $3 Million. This project was active and advertising for months and months. There was no way anyone in the 3D printing space hadn’t heard about them.

Only after the project was successful and that the waiting period for the funds to be released to Form Labs did 3D Systems file a law suit. So what they have done is knowingly wait for the company to get a huge cash injection and then sue them for it. Because if they sued them before, then they wouldn’t have anything to gain.

There has been no discussion about licensing, nothing, 3D Systems are just going to sue them and fuck every one involved, including KickStarter.

3D Systems  you are a bunch of patent trolls and you as a company are fucking cunts. Go fuck yourselves.


Time and Accuracy

I’m building a watch,

My first attempt had an accuracy of 1 second out of 80 seconds. At first glance i thought well that is ok, that is 98.75% accurate. but if you think about it, that is a whopping 1080 seconds (18 minutes) a day of lost time.

With my next attempt I lost 9 second over 27180 second. This was much better at as accuracy of 99.96689% but over a year this is still 10442 seconds a year (174 mintues or 2.9 hours).

So on my third attempt I have successfully tweaked it to 1 second every 172800 seconds or 99.9994% accuracy or 3 minutes a year. I am happy with this.

Work will continue, as i now start on a stop watch and alarm feature.
