Can it make a fish? (or as the French would put it 'un poisson d'Avril).

I don't think I have the patience to build something 0.5 mm at a time.  Would it be okay if I just buried it in a pan of dust and then pulled it out later?

Is subby a moran or trying to be funny? Because he surely succeeded at one of those.

douchebag/hater: How do 3D printers make internal moving parts?


1. They "print" a part
2. The remove it from the printer
3. They manually install it internally into an assembly (possibly made of other 3d printed components).

It's called mangling your mother tongue.  And it won't be the last time I do it either.  So there.

sometimes this.

many 3d printers have mechanical tolerances that allow them to print parts with clearances of less than .01 inches, which means they basically they build both the housing and the moving part at the same time. shake the works around a bit once it's done to clear out the filler material, maybe actuate all the parts a few times, lubricate(if neccesary. some ceramic printing doesn't need lubrication), and away you go.

it really IS a fascinating process and gives you a lot of versatility if you're doing R&D/product development, or one-off manufacture. if you're doing mass production it blows.

Not only that, but a flashlight powerful enough to, when concentrated with a magnifying glass, melt nylon!

Posting the April Fools' video on April 3 kind of ruins the whole thing.

Some allow the printing of "support material" around parts to hold them in place until they are completely printed.  The support material can then be dissolved away.

Wow, Quite Amazing that we haven`t been told how stupid we all are and how nothing that has not been invented already could ever be because atoms have no age yet.

Wow, even a crappy April Fools joke brings out the Fandroids to praise their stupid phones and bash Apple. F*ck you guys are sad.

If there is no Swiss army knife, then it ain't MacGyver.

It's like an article a day.

you can't print the parts directly, but you can print the material used to make the molds

Saw a photo of a 3D Sand printer that runs 24/7 making molds for a foundry earlier this week.
Probably one of the few actual manufacturing processes done with the things is using them for casting mold making

Isn't it technically 4D printing since it takes time to complete the process?

You must be new here. Never owned an iProduct, never intend on it.

okay, good point. and that right there is gonna be more than a smidge more efficient than investment molding on wax cores(the long-reigning process for doing complicated castings, very time-consuming more than anything else).

for your standard blank parts like gears/cogs/bell cranks etc traditional mold-making will stay competitive i think.

Seems legit to me.
