Is it like a welder where the first thing you weld is a cart for it? 3D print a stand for your 3D printer.

So when does the 3d scan of your ***** get done, and then you print out 3d penises to put in boxes when you send stuff to members on here?

I wouldn't even have to do that, I could just share the file and people could download them and print them on their own!!!



Eventually if I learn enough I want to design some interior car trim pieces etc... I have some 3d design experience playing around in Blender. I don't know if that will translate. This essentially just a expensive toy I wanted to get to see what it's all about.

You can use either ABS(Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) or PLA(Polylactic acid or polylactide) filament. (different types of plastic essentially)

This model specifically uses makerbot's makerware software. I'm not sure if I can use 3rd part 3d graphic programs but I'm sure I can. I haven't gotten that far down the rabbit hole yet.

I kid you not

I kept refreshing this page and was quite surprised it took this many posts to get this comment.

Was going to post the same myself, but got distracted with Rev's vhs comment

Mazduh if you want to use the 3d printer to help out people I would highly suggest checking out E-nabling The Future | A network of passionate volunteers using 3D printing to give the World a "Helping Hand." which is a site for 3d printing prosthetic hands for people in need. I am a member and when I get some more free time I am planning on hopefully printing out some hands for some kids in need.

Based on the surface finish I've seen on most ABS and PLA parts, I don't think you'll be selling many of them wieners.

VHS kicks ***. I am not going out and buying Heat, Grosse Pointe Blank, Fight Club, The 5th Element, Office Space, The Devils Advocate, etc on crappy fragile DVDs/other failboat disk formats. Pics incoming.

I once bought a VHS at a Goodwill store and it had a porno in it.
