I've noticed these 3D printers are becoming very popular. Who here has one.
Popular? Well they are gaining notice in the public world but are still ridiculously expensive for an ordinary consumer to purchase, not to mention why a consumer would need one anyway. Most likely if you're using one, you're working for some commercial design company.
My modelmaker bought one about three weeks ago and proudly presented me his new tool/toy for about one hour. Impressive. He uses the plastic-material.
I'd like to have one in my cellar (they are loud), as long as I can't afford a decent 'modellistica' or atelier to build my own stuff.
Yet, I'd get a model with the 'older' method, using a kind of plaster. They need much more effort regarding the 3d-modelling process and the outcome is much more grainier, but that's what l personally prefer.
I don't, but I know people who do. One is a freelance 3D modeller and was given an "old" 3D printer when one of his clients upgraded. I think there are a few type out there. There's one (around £4k I believe) that uses jets of water, takes longer and has a lower resolution.
is Squilly your other username? Serious question.
The posting style and content is alarmingly similar
Agreed. I don't ever see myself owning one.
That's what I was wondering. Hmmm...
Anywhoo, back on topic.
I highly doubt anybody here has a 3D printer.
3D printer have become big on Kickstarter. I think almost every single one reached its goal...
I have a 3D printer, and have printed several iPhone cases for myself.
I have an Ultimaker, it's the best in price, speed and accuracy
Doubt many people have one. I want one though. That and a CNC machine.
how about a lathe?
Nope are they still kicking around?
Besides who created Squilly to make similar posts to me?
No, I'm not Waloshin.
No. We're not related at all.
I think the question has to do with the startling similarities in the threads you start.
Take that observation any way you want.
...wow. This is almost as eerie as that time I met my retarded doppelganger.
Until I can print kitchen gadgets like toasters and dishwashers, a 3d printer won't be very useful for me.
Same here. I can never find a fork, so printing one would be amazingly handy.
I love where this is heading. Apparently printing with ceramics and metals is on the way too. I want to be able to print a replacement bathroom tile, drill bit, nuts & bolts, etc...
