Hour Twenty Four

Two thirds through Hackagong’s 36 hour time limit, and we have hit an embarassing problem.

See, we were more or less done about twelve hours ago. All that remained was some polishing and refinement. We’d sent our product to the printer to be prototyped out, and we were working on supplementary stuff while we waited to see how that worked out. Basically, we had a good idea, we worked on it well, and our modellers and artists all did their jobs.

It is not a warm place here. The AC is on – cooling the place off further. I’m here in four layers feeling frosty. This is annoying, but it is not deleritous. What’s a real problem – a major problem – is that our discomfort is secondary to the capabilities of the 3D Printers. Simply put: The colder it gets, the less reliable the prints get.

We had set aside all night to get our prototype printed. Thanks to the AC and the ambient cold, we can’t. We probably won’t.

It’s quite irritating.
