3D Printers and You....

Postby MrRapidByte on Wed Jun 26, 2013 11:27 pm

If you had a 3D printer, what would be the first thing you would print and why?

I would maybe go for a phone stand for my S3, so I could charge it while it stands up.......just as an easy test :)

What would you all print?

I was actually watching programs on this two days or so ago and saw they build guns, bicycles and even houses! I'd try a house :P

The RepRap is being designed to do just that: http://reprap.org/wiki/Main_Page

There are 10 types of people in the world: those that know binary, those that don't, and those that didn't expect this joke to be in base 3.

My University has a 3D printer in the foyer of the School of Computing, Engineering & Physical Sciences building, will have to get round to having a play around with it.

I'm guessing even with a 3D printer, printing money would be no use? :( (excluding Monopoly money of course).

As for teaching me how to play, pretty sure my shovel still has your face indented into it :twisted:

Han Solo in carbonite
This is my sandvich. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My sandvich is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my sandvich is useless. Without my sandvich, I am useless. I must eat my sandvich true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before lunch I swear this creed: my sandvich and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but sandvich. Om nom.
