To the needle, as it plays these impossible to properly track squares, the signal seems to be a signal which alternates between square waves to triangular waves, twice per 1.8 second rotation:
... My point is that you are dead wrong; they don't have any, not at any scale, none, not even in theory. But feel free to use strawman arguments and change the subject to "but the real question is... blah-blah-blah" as much as you'd like. I don't care nor will address any such red herrings.
I wouldn't advise this! The stylus isn't playing a smooth waveform, it is attempting to play a staircase textured groove wall. The constant bashing of the needle between steps is analogous (pardon the pun) to applying an improperly light, downward tracking force with a normal record, also very bad. Besides the distortion, it wears down the needle very quickly with all the side to side groove bashing going on!
I'd like to think you're joking. But apparently it's not a spoof.
That is amazing. I'm sure it's not too difficult to write a program to make an STL file, but getting access to a 3D printer that large and accurate is either hard, or expensive!
