If you think 3D printing is just firing blanks, just you wait

couple of points..

2 - done and done! multi coloured/multi headed machines available now. Im sure i have seen one with 4 reels somewhere.

4 - what you are basically saying is along the lines of you want to write poetry but can't be arsed to learn grammar or spelling!

CAD is the easy part, autocad is no more or less complex than word, but FEA, which is what you really need, that can be a bit more complex. While the tech is fascinating, what you are trying to do is inherently complicated. if you can't stand the heat...

Don't know where you are getting your info on scanners from but +- 50 microns seems pretty accurate to me. and kinda the point of the current 3d printing enthusiast scene is actually making stuff you have designed, not replicating something that some other bloke/bloke-ess designed. so i would say the need for scanners is not so great. (unless making prosthetic limbs, where a model of the stump would be important!)

Especially as the materials and construction methodology do not make 3d printing much of a candidate for replacing _any_ component. An injection moulded nylon doh-dah is going to be far stronger than it's ABS laminar print lookalike. and if the nylon doh-dah broke in the first place, then it dont look good for the printed replacement.

Re: The File

CAD is as old as gods dog - make your own models ffs.

Or you can download 1000's of stl files, you just have to look. (there's even a strandbeeste model you can d/l for nothing)

There are plenty of 'cheap' 3d scanners about with the same form factor as the hobbyist printers. Plus the nature of the community is such that I am sure a replacement hot end that contains a laser, that can scan, is minutes away from market as we speak.

Thus spake the bloke getting a 3d printer next payday.

I don't make claims that I will be able to print a working suspension bridge or anything 'structural' any time soon... or at all really, for me it's just a really cool toy.

On the whole I sort of agree with dabbsy the current state of the art is not great just like the early digi cams, but people didnt buy them cos they took great pictures, they bought them cos they were digital!

and if they had not bought them, then we would all still be taking pictures on little slivers of plastic... or actually not taking pictures at all, cos it was such a pain in the arse.

As the author has clearly not travelled a great deal in this fine world of ours, might I suggest a trip the the United States of Murica.

There you will find a system that is fully 110% committed to the principle that in which the devoted contributors are ‘taxed’ without being represented. And it has been that way for quite some time.

Health and safety gone maddddd!

Does the average commentard here really drive in such a manner that looking away (or adjusting ones focus) for 1/2 a second will result in an accident?

p'raps that explains the vast numbers of drives who regard mirrors as vanity accessories!

Take an LGV course, you spend way way WAY more time looking in your mirrors*, and compensate by considering driving conditions further up the road (a lot further up the road if you have a liquid or swinging load)

It's just the same information we are all processing now, with a fractionally different delivery system. If you cant deal with it, turn it off or preferably take the bus.

* a truck driver should be at least as aware whats going on behind him as is in front.

Re: The internet

WHAT?

You think the net happened by accident?

You need to take more water with it mate.

The internet is a prime example of precisely, and I mean that in it's technical sense, precisely the opposite of the point you are trying to make.

It's a fantastic example of forward planning and it is regulated all to fuck - just not by governments.

You don't believe me? try unplugging that cat 5 cable from the back of your computer and shouting 'google' really loudly into it. see how far you get.

just because you lack the wit to appreciate the organisation does not mean it is not there

way to fail!

Re: Inefficiency

All of that is explained by incompetent management, and whether the enterprise is government run or privately owned, we will always have PHB's fucking everything up.

_that_ is the british disease (we think 'management' is a specialist subject - divorced from the actual work of the business.... well it fucking isn't).

I would counter the nationalisation/privatisation argument with the simple fact that there is nothing, not one thing that has happened in any of the privatised utilities that couldn't have happened while the enterprise was state run - given appropriate instruction from the owners... us!. There was simply a lack of political will to do so. And that applies to all parties! The soviet system didn't fail due to some ideological shortcoming as all you hayek cocksuckers insist. the entire country was utterly corrupt. that's what caused the implosion.

About as corrupt as American society is today... just wait and see (i'll give you a clue... it's behind you!)

MS and Adobe are pushing on-line versions

I'm beginning to come round to this idea TBH

Anything that ends the Sisyphean 'upgrade' (what-the-fuck-grade) cycle of annual updates with no significant productivity gain (all more than offset by the bugs in the new bits), but different enough to require staff training or variation to your internal systems. Who knows someone might even come up with the innovation of software that just does what it's supposed to do, and wont go titsup every 10 minutes. and if it helps the vendors address piracy, than that's all good too.

hope he sues the people that made money off the dip to get some money to pay his fines.

(the clue is in the question: for everyone _selling_ for an artificially low price and losing out there was someone else _buying_ for an artificially low price and making a profit.)

Hence a zero sum game.

Re: I think...

Agreed!

So Mr Page, regarding that itchy mole that recently appeared on your back, will you;

a) Take the advice of your regular GP

b) Consult with a specialist dermatologist - who has specialised in this condition

c) Post a question on !yahoo !answers and go with the most popular opinion

yeah I thought so.
