Hello, hope all is well with you and yours. It’s been a little somber in SF with the power outages and forest fires, but heart-warming to see people come together in times of need. Here’s a link to charities you can donate to if you’re able: click here.
And speaking of coming together, things are going well at Everecarre R&D. Eli Smith, owner of Dark EDC, is helping me with my CAD software models so I can eventually get the Gatsby machined via CNC. Eli and I have been good friends for awhile – in fact, he was one of the very first people I ever talked to when I joined the spin community two years ago. Since then, he has spent a year mastering CAD and released a spinner of his own in 2019, to much success. His expertise will surely make for smoother sailing here. The Gatsby is one step closer to production, folks!
A few changes to be made: buttons, orientation of the outside curves to match the others, and length. There’s going to be a lot of experimenting with different dimensions to find the best fit for the design and ergonomics; renders are definitely a lot better for stuff like that than my back-of-the-napkin drawings. More updates to come. ‘Til next time!
