    Disaster Prepare Month

    Ok, so an event happens and you have 30 min to evacuate...you have a family to gather and in-laws to rally.... You come back a few days later and your office is burned to the ground...everything gone. So you make sure the family & In-laws are ok. How long would it take to get your business back up an running? Currently I have some people working for me that are each about 100-150 miles away. So they could hold the fort until I got up and running. I'm slowly getting the feeling that a centralized office is an old paradigm. My Google docs, sheets etc would be easy access...(the storage & the apps to run what I stored) My iCloud would be easy access...(the storage & the apps to run what I stored) My OpenBOM would be easy access...(the storage & the app to run what I stored) My Onshape would be easy access...(the storage & the app to run what I stored) My Dropbox would be easy access...(the storage but not the apps to run what I stored)

    Disaster Prepare Month

    Power expected to be out into the weekend...spoke to some who are bringing in generators to run their office etc...do these offices have quick connect generator panel so they can just throw a switch and run off the generator line? or do they need to have extension cords running (thru the building) directly to the electronics? Is the server room door going to be left open to make room for the extension cords to pass through? All this make shift "after the fact" patch work creates more chaos... And we all know what happens when chaos starts...In a few days they will have a T-Rex chasing them... actually, after about 3 days w/o power things really start to fall apart... water & fuel runs out... and I forgot about looters... have experience all the above... except for the T-Rex...

    Disaster Prepare Month

    I can pack up my "office" in 30 min and have it in the car (done it before) to be set up anywhere I have a table and internet... This means 3 monitors and everything... but then maybe my gear gets stolen on the way...by a "Mad Max" group... Who can really say what is secure?

    Disaster Prepare Month

    So people are emailing me with their phones so that means that the could based systems are running because they can be run on mobile devises...granted I would not want to run anything off my phone but i have done work off my iPad.... So all the cloud based stuff would work... to run the office you would need a generator to run the office servers then you can connect to internet with iPhone... or have people out of State working for you... The office that is down is not cloud based...but maybe they use dropbox which means they are in a way but they cannot work on anything... we will see how this plays out

    3d point clouds - need to rethink

    i cannot find an image output for Screenflow...i make a video then just move the time indicator 2 seconds and do a screen shot...its not pretty but I'm still new at this... vw needs to take a video then have a make 3d from video and then we set up how many frame to take off video instead of us doing it

    3d point clouds - need to rethink

    as for how to make it...you find the 3d on google earth and then do a screen recording of you flying around with the 3d space nav then cop the video up into jpgs (every 2 seconds?) then load to the VW cloud and select all images and choose convert to 3d model...there is a vw video on this somewhere...

    3d point clouds - need to rethink

    this is a project i need to get existing conditions for...so before i show up i want to have clear in my mind the sections i need to get (the old school way) so this point cloud was good enough to explain to the team what that game plan was vs trying to figure it out in the field... the blue planes are the section cuts that i want to get...

    3d point clouds - need to rethink

    Ok...I'm slowing getting it...everything has a place and purpose...Sledge hammers and Tack hammers...it all depends on the task... The 1st image (project 1) is a point cloud I got by making a video fly over of a 3d building on Google Earth then used the VW point cloud from images feature...very very useful for me... The 2nd image (project 2) is me reaching in to find out how the framing is...3d scanner not going to get this...
  16. wow... this can cause some serious problems with "make pdf" day...

    SaaS

    I get the OpenBOM news letter and I'm looking for feed back on the following. Does this change the way we would do our stuff?? Trying to wrap my head around it. "I was taking some time earlier this week to think about manufacturing transformation. Have you heard the word XaaS? This abbreviation stands for "everything X" as a service. You probably heard about SaaS until now. Actually, OpenBOM is SaaS (Software as a Service). But changes are not stopping here. XaaS is a general, collective term that refers to the delivery of anything as a service. It recognizes the vast number of products, tools and technologies that vendors now deliver to users as a service over a network -- typically the internet -- rather than provide locally or on-site within an enterprise. Amazon, Netflix, Uber, Zipcar... These are only a few examples. However, large industrial companies are also following the trend XaaS as well. Rolls Roys, SKF, Michelin. These are only a few examples of companies that stopped selling products and selling services instead - mile, times and other consumables while providing equipment to their customers. It brings up a very important topic- in the past most the companies stopped collecting detailed information about products at the time product was shipped to a customer. But moving to XaaS is changing the model. Now you need to know much more about the product than before. You want to know what is in the product, how it is serviced, maintained and used. To collect this information is not a simple thing. We observe a strong trend of using online Bill of Materials to share and collect information about the product with customers. Actually your customers. OpenBOM Bill of Materials can be shared online as part of the service manual and help your customers to perform certain maintenance and repair work, order part replacement and share information about product use...."

    3d point clouds - need to rethink

    I guess that is the point...just because you can read a point cloud file does not mean you know what you are doing...we need to be careful in what we say to clients....sure i figured it out in a few days but it took a few days...I had to chop the point cloud in to 20ft wide ribbons and then turn off every other one....something the clipped cube could not help with...

    3d point clouds - need to rethink

    i understand the value of a point cloud but when a 32gb file shows up at your door...you need to be prepared for it...and that was only 1/2 the bldg..
