can't wait for the next installment
- It's been sometime!
The long awaited 5th Installment of Project RC100 #0286!
*appliance of science*
2012 started with my RC100 frame/forks/stem and bulleyes in a stripped state awaiting etch priming and painting. Other priorities took over and the project went very much on the back burner.
One of the things I had done though, was to record the frameset and parts using a process called photogrammetry scanning. These files were captured as separate parts - and only just got around to aligning the parts in their correct positions.
Although this is more of a "let's see what we can do with the equipment" project, it has proved useful for building the datasets for the line guides.
More to follow on this in the next installment.

for more details on the scanning process.
In terms of getting the actual bike back together, I still have to get the fork crown anodised. This will help me match the grey to the fork crown as in the previous images.
Metallic yellow has been chosen for the stem, bulleyes and fork legs...
I now have all the parts to complete....
Just need to find some time to move the project onwards.
