Default 3D Printing

IMHO 3D printing is the biggest thing since Da Intrenetzz.
It will replace lots of jobs and make other materials/labour more cost effective.

Looking at possibly buying a 3D printer for work for printing prototypes, etc.
Does anyone have any experience with 3D printers?

What company/model did you go with? what do u use it for? What materials are you able to print? What tech?? sinthering, additive manufacturing, etc?

I've been up to my eyeballs reading aBOOT it.

They're already 3D printing houses. I wonder if it will ever become practical?

Food for thought:
1. some nerd should buy a 3D printer then see if they can 3D print themselves a whole bunch of 3D printers. Would take a lot of knowledge of the inner workings.

2. If I 3D print but then the object moves, occupies another time or space is that then 4D/5D printing?

3. can a Rager 3D print a person then have manches? Would it beat a real doll?

4. Will Rage3D eventually become to mean a place for 3D printing instead of 3D gaming? (We need robots to make games, jeez.... or it reads my mind on what game I want and it makes the code for me working flawlessly at 99999FPS)

Why grow things layer by layer, when you can start with a solid block of material, and then cut all unnecessary parts?

1) There is no nerd nerdy enough to nerd the nerd out of that nerd fantasy.

2. Stay off the drugs (nerd)

#3 Why would you want a replacement when the real deal is so available

4: it will become a place for 3d printed graphics cards running 3d games on 3d monitors.


Nerds.

4d printing is if the printer could influence the passage of time on the subject

Two things.

1 - Those 3D food printers look like they take a lot more time and effort to make what you want than if you just did it by hand.

2 - There's no way in hell I'd put that "food" through my digestive tract.

I can see medical science getting to that point at some stage.

On a related subject, even since I've been on my strict low-carb diet and I've been eating healthier, my turds have been very clean. Not that turds are clean in and of themselves, but with the reduced fat and healthier foods I'm eating, there are no more etch-a-sketch turds leaving swirly patterns in the bowl, clean flush every time with no toilet brushing needed, and I haven't needed to clean the toilet in over 3 months. Still pristine and white. Clean turds. Awesome.

dang I wish I could talk myself out of eating cheeseburgers and pizza so much (without it being because I've gotten to a point where my body can't stand it anymore, because then its easy to talk yourself out of it)

current 3d printing tech that's affordable for mere mortals kinda sucks. VERY very picky. Nozzles jam, sometimes it doesn't adhere and you get a stringy mess, in all circumstances it takes a long time to do anything worthwhile. Corners tend to buckle a little from shrinkage(!) on large pieces.

That said, when it works it's very cool. It'll just take 5 hours to see it the result

(we were printing something fairly large by 3d printer standards.)

3dprintforums.com is a spinoff from cnczone.com so you might find some decent homebrew stuff there. If the cost was much much lower I'd really consider buying one.

Basically, the cells are cultured seperately, then printed in single cell layers using essentially the same method as an ink jet - hoppers of liquid containing free floating cells.



Also, since when did this turn into a real thread? When I posted (and even now), I was/am 100% convinced that it was an april fools thread

Yeah this is a lot less jaggie than the layer based ones too. The layer ones are more for just building models of stuff and trinkets. Block based ones are what you want for high quality goods, but there seems to be a lot of waste... unless those blocks are super cheap.

It's also not printing at this point, it's machining.

This is "inexpensive" rapid prototyping currently, not a new form of machining.

Architects can print what the house will look like, for example. Manufacturers can see a dozen variations on an idea for the price of one prototype in earlier generations.

It won't replace certain prototyping like car design, either; they still build full-scale models out of clay. By hand.

[Machining is removal, like whittling or lathing, just with metal.
