Quantum Apostrophe: Where is the rebuttal to my 3D printer parody? (3D printing, another popular delusion among geeks.)


Damn that's impressive. Demanding a rebuttal to a parody of an attack that no one actually made in a thread that had no mention of a topic before you seagulled the place.

Here, I'll help you a little. I'm what you'd probably call a 3d printing fanboy, although really I'm a passive supporter of a technology that I can see have a positive effect on my daily life. When they hit the 400 dollar range I will get one. Immediate uses would be: A) printing items for my model railroad, B) printing missing or broken components for the controls/fairings of my classic Japanese motorcycles, and C) printing chassis's for various arduino projects I'm planning. Other uses will arise over time. None of that is earth shattering but it would effect my daily life.

Now let's look at the water cutting knife. It's one hell of a technological accomplishment that will likely have effects on variety of technologies some point in the future. I think medical and chemical industries seem the most likely. But in terms of right now daily knife, due to the alloys it's made out of, it wouldn't last a week in my kitchen as a paring knife before it lost its edge.

But see this right here? This is a right now life changing effect for at least one little girl.Link

But even I wouldn't suggest a printed plastic knife is somehow a better than what they developed.
