No different from criticizing someone for wearing a sombrero because that is also cultural appropriation.

In fact, I'm mad at everyone under 40 in Germany and the Netherlands. They walk around all day listening to American pop music, eating fast food and wearing blue-jeans. They're appropriating my culture!

Define oppressed?

My culture is under attack every day from both internal and external oppressors.

Americans constitute a global minority. White Americans even more so.

English is spoken natively by less than 10% of the worlds population, and that number is declining.

Oppressed: Some event that the media and general public decides is so horrible they have to protest about it.

In this video, the author claims "the first 3d printer car is here, and it's awesome!"


I'd be really curious to know what percentage of that car, by any reasonable metric (mass, parts-count, cost, etc) was produced by RP as compared to traditional methods (casting, pressing, forging, hydroforming, machining, injection-molding, etc).

Roughly 75% of the LM3D is printed. Our goal is to consolidate as much of the traditional bill of materials into a single, 3D-printed piece as possible, eventually making about 90% of the car using 3D-printing. Nearly all of the body panels and chassis are 3D printed on the LM3D.
https://localmotors.com/3d-printed-car/

I guess they are using carbon fiber filled ABS. It's already available for consumer level desktop bricks, but it's vicious stuff that erodes all of the extrusion parts of the normal printers.

You need a house for your 3d printed car, so I got you this.

Didnt like the show. Too much talk and nothing happening. I want the show to be nucular explosions everywhere for 44 minutes.

Yeah, I got the part where they're claiming 75%.

But what does that mean?

Are they 3d printing the engine block? The oil pump? The crankshaft? The head? The connecting rods? The valves? The bearings? The flywheel? The clutch assembly? The brake rotors and calipers? The transmission gears? The differential? The shocks and springs? The suspension arms? The wiring harness? The radiator? The exhaust system? The bolts and screws? The tires? The wheels? The steering rack? The alternator? The fuel tank? The ball joints?

Because even in a car with no doors or glass, the above items should easily constitute way more than 25% of the car by any reasonable metric (weight, cost, parts count, etc), and are probably closer to 75% all by themselves.


60% of all people are white males, 80% of all cell phones are made by Samsung, 100% of all VoIP phones are Cisco model 7940s, 50% of all TV sets are tuned to WPIX (or one of its sub-channels), about 1/3 of all people live in New Jersey. At least, according to the sample I just took here in the office. Whether that figure is meaningful on a global scale I don't know.

No, they didn't invent any magical new processes or anything. I think the 75% they claim are parts you can actually see. As with most things made with 3d printing, not a lot of it is actually made with 3d printing.

3d printers can print a new 3d printer, that's another thing said pretty often. They also forget to mention the ten meters of allthread and twenty pounds of jam nuts, too.

All I know is I'd rock an ABS fiber filled 3d printed hardtop

I dislike intentionally misleading statistics.

That kind of illustrates one of the big problems with the use of the term "3d printing" as it exists today.

Comparing FDM (the technology used in most hobbyist 3d printers) to SLS and DMLS (the technologies used by NASA and Koenigseggisseggggnignigsegigisegggg to produce metal things that operate at 3x the temperature of the sun) is like comparing an 80's vintage 9 pin dot-matrix printer to the Goss International CTP printing presses used by the New York Times.
