Week Plan and Review. Last week, promised Prototyping Budget Pitch, documenting Concept for 6 Machines, 12 people at Design Sprint. Achieved: 14 people at Design Sprint. Delivered concept only on Backhoe, and shifting to defining template with assistance from Marie, then putting content in spreadsheet, and having team do the filling in of template. Takes long - so separating it by content then presentation of content. Doing Prototyping Budget right now. Goals for week: (1) Get back to progress on Torch Table, handing off the other 5 machines to Gary. (2) Prepare 3D printing files for tractor for Shuttleworth Gathering. Budget From May 14, 2013 for 12 Months. Created Blogging Backlog for Lisa. Solidworks Backwards Compatibility Issues from Ian and Mike A. Found CEB Press IV in BRL-CAD!! Going open source all the way. CEB Press III in STL. All day onboarding meetings - till 4 pm. Then food and emails and it's 5:30, ready to talk to Justin Downs on the Bobcat Standard Quick Attach. Husam and Gary created Open Source Warehouse. OSE Guidelines of Engagement.
