Steeled knights of the Conquest, bearded statesmen of Queen Elizabeth, and high-ruffled ladies of her court, were mingled with characters of comedy, such as a party-colored Merry Andrew, jingling his cap and bells; a Falstaff, almost as provocative of laughter as his prototype
; and a Don Quixote, with a bean pole for a lance, and a pot lid for a shield.
Not a rich flower upon her head, not a single leaf, but had had its prototype
in Drowne's wooden workmanship, although now their fragile grace had become flexible, and was shaken by every footstep that the wearer made.
When a remembered event has a remembered context, this may occur in two ways, either (a) by successive images in the same order as their prototypes
, or (b) by remembering a whole process simultaneously, in the same way in which a present process may be apprehended, through akoluthic sensations which, by fading, acquire the mark of just-pastness in an increasing degree as they fade, and are thus placed in a series while all sensibly present.
They believe that every race which breeds true, let the distinctive characters be ever so slight, has had its wild prototype
. At this rate there must have existed at least a score of species of wild cattle, as many sheep, and several goats in Europe alone, and several even within Great Britain.
Indeed, except in respect of staring about him (a branch of the public service to which the pictorial cherub is much addicted), this domestic cherub discharged as many odd functions as his prototype
; with the difference, say, that he performed with a blacking-brush on the family's boots, instead of performing on enormous wind instruments and double-basses, and that he conducted himself with cheerful alacrity to much useful purpose, instead of foreshortening himself in the air with the vaguest intentions.
And the biggest contributor to schedule delays and costs overruns to the defense product development process is the overdependence on prototypes
of the actual system, creating a "build--test--repair" flow.
Survey respondents noted the lead times for receiving prototypes
when they use outside prototyping facilities range from 1 to 2 weeks (37%), while 33% cited times of 2 to 4 weeks, and 11% said it can take longer than 4 weeks.
President Donald Trump's (https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/white-house/trump-visits-california-see-wall-prototypes-near-mexico-border-n854836) Southern California trip to see U.S.-Mexico border-wall prototypes
comes with plenty of questions as to whether it will effectively deter immigration.
It can be as simple as initial proof of concepts for "down and dirty" prototypes
, with few quality or trace-ability requirements, to complex parts that require verification and validation (V&V).
Foamlinx has invested in new machinery specifically suitable for creating large prototypes
and has purchased several designs of CNC routers all capable of machining and fabricating foam projects up to 16ft.
