XYZ Davinci Color Frustrations Video

My original plan was for the second video to be my recent successes, and then go back with a 3rd video to talk the downsides. Kind of a "good" then "bad and ugly" sort of layout. But then I remembered about the 3 act structure and I realized that, told as they unfolded, this experience perfectly fit the form. I did go a little further into the 3rd act than academia might suggest for this video, but I did that so I could end on a hopeful note.

By the way, if you want to watch these things unfold in real time, you can always follow me on Twitter.

Without a doubt, situations like this are frustrating. But they're also a part of any new technology, and this is in many ways the newest technology there is. They're trying to make something without the support of an open community, because they're trying to maintain control of it. This was the sort of thing I joined the bandwagon in crucifying Makerbot for in the past. But, really, this sort of development is inevitable. We don't have to be happy about it, but we may have to accept it, at least for a little while, while the technology develops. Personal computers went through this. Inkjet printers went through this. Now it's 3D printing's turn. Doesn't mean we turn our back on this technology, just because we don't agree with the business that it's built under. If they're doing something that no one else is doing, and if it's really what we want, then we have a responsibility to support them.

On the other hand, I would not blame you for counting the cost and deciding that, while you might want this, you don't need it.

I hope I've whet your appetite for part 3, coming next Saturday. For right now I want Saturday to be hardware, and Wednesday to be kind of a wildcard. I'd love to add a Modeling Monday to the rotation, only because I want to be doing more modeling and recording the process, but right now 2 videos is pushing it. This video, and Wednesday's video were recorded, edited, and released all on the same day. I have almost nothing queued up right now. I'm kinda just scrambling last minute for a little while. Hopefully I can get my stuff together and get a little bit ahead, but for now I'm flying by the seat of my pants. I hope that's not being reflected in the videos. For the most part I'm pretty pleased with the recording setup I've got that makes this possible while maintaining high quality output, and I have my Pateron supporters to thank for that.

Lemme just spam some pictures here:
