Well today was a bad day, they cancelled my new projects too, also for ‘IP reasons’, meaning either they are being over-cautious or ignorant when it comes to 3D scanning and remixing artefacts. The service was truly disappointing as they processed my payments and yet never notified me about these decisions until I started chasing my orders 3 weeks later. However the real issue is this…

Day 1 of building the new parametric colour interface, with color-stl export, in Processing. I’m liking the accidental cyan dapple, worthy of a print perhaps.
