Open Source Release?


#1

So now that the first orders have been taken, when can we expect a release of the “open source” design files? I’d love to see the CAD files, wiring diagrams, controller code, etc.

Were cleaning a few things up with the code and the files for the public, but if you really need them right away just shoot me a PM and ill get them to you.

Thanks - I can be patient (for a few more days!) Thanks for all the work on this, looking forward to seeming what the community does with this as it grows.


#4

Sweet! Let us know where they’ll be posted. Particularly if you have any links on how the carbon fiber plating is done that would be great to know as well.


#5

Can you also make the files for the the original round tube available - I want to make a none folding version 1st and round seems more the way to go.
Thx

My 2 cents: let @Pdwhite publish those files first, that are the base of what is shipping right now!

I guess he and the team is tied up already, so why make things more complicated?
It’ll be up to you then to make any modifications (and publish these as well).


#7

I’m in no rush – wont be till the winter that I can start manufacturing
Cheers

Hello @Pdwhite, congrats on this awesome build!
Any news about releasing the frame and hinges files?

I am based in Germany, would by the props, controller and throttle from you,
but I would LOVE to try to build the frame myself, as I am a Maker and Tinkerer.

If the only issue is that the files need some cleaning, no worries, I can take care of that myself (any possibly help you with that).


#9

Very interested too. What CAD format are you planning to release ?


#10

@Pdwhite Hi Paul,
any roadmap/ ETA for the release of the files?


#11

Not that I am in any rush - probably not going to do anything the fall most likely. But seems odd that a production run can be done but the files need to be clean up – he did say PM him if you are really eager.

Cheers, Patrick


#12

yep PM if you want to take a look


#13

Its mostly the sharing platform the files will be on, I want to keep the different versions of the files clean and organized to eliminate confusion. Its not so much the files as the organization and platform the share them.


#14

@Pdwhite Hi Paul, PM sent!

As for sharing 3D files, not sure if you already have a platform in mind, but I have two suggestions:

I am not sure if those platforms have version control, but you can definitely openly share CAD and STL files there.

Me too please @Pdwhite

Thanks :sunglasses:

Hey @Pdwhite just a reminder, did not get your email yet…
