`Hello?'

`Dude - it's Mike! Check out the doog I just dropped! I sent the specs to your 3D printer!'

`If the future is now, I hate it!'

Careful, Mod banned me for a day for posting that, told me it was harassing him by doing that *rolls eyes*

Harassing him?! What a farking crock. 5 bucks nothing, he's gotta give a mean handy.

Agreed, I did feel it was a crock of shiat and I did contact the mod and was told I should just place him on ignore...


It's a quantum threadshiat.  Before clicking the comments section, QA has either posted or not (there is no way to tell).  Regardless, the thread still ends up threadshiat due to references to him.

I am trying to figure out a reason why anyone in middle America would want one of these beyond making homemade dildos and pocket pussies.

Quantum Apostrophe: Putting drops of paint on a piece of paper was easy.


And yet in my lifetime we've gone from XeroxTM machines the size of a Model T (see what I did there?) that cost tens of thousands of dollars to the color laser sitting on my desk right now that set me back a couple hundred.  The technology advanced to the point where it was feasible to commoditize it.  If you're betting against technological progress you'll lose, nearly every time.

SewerSquirrels: but technophobe & Luddite aren't on the list


I'll argue that Luddism applies, albeit of a strangely narrow-focused sort.  What sets QA above the usual anti-science troll is the unexplainable vehemence of his crusade.  You can be counted upon to show a towering frothing passion in your arguments, and a mighty unwillingness to allow any dissenting opinion to tarnish your rage.

I caught a 24 hour ban just for calling someone a "petulant child".  I bet it's because he pays $5 and I don't.

Nah just depends on if the mods are on the rag or not. I once caught a 24 hour ban for making a joke about eating puppies.


I got banned once for making an "Airplane" joke in a Photoshop thread about jet liners. PS threads, serious business.

As we all know, 3d printers will forever stay at the level they are right now. There will be no further advancements of that technology.

Stone Meadow: The problem is...you aren't the best. You just type faster than you think.


I don't actually know what your problem is with my post because you're doing the "I won't tell you what my argument is, that way you can't defeat it! I'll just smugly dance around it instead!" thing.

I assume you're gonna claim that you said current 3d printing was a toy and weren't remarking on its future potential, ignoring the fact that you also said you agreed with QA, who's on the record as believing 3d printing is doomed.

Also; I'll have you know that I type really, really slowly. Your vile insinuations about my typing prowess are utter falsehoods.

No, only "3D printing as replicators" and colonizing space. Get your facts straight.

I love how I'm portrayed as technophobe as I'm sitting between two oscilloscopes...

I'm a hype-phobe. 3D printing at home is a ridiculous notion, just needs a few more disappointed people and it'll be over. Too bad I'm a realist, eh?

My back's hairier than your caveman, BTW.

Burr: way south: I try to be respectful of everyone, but when a guy comes in and commanders every jesus 3d tech thread to the point where nothing gets discussed but his own thread shiatting... Yea, they deserve a jab in the ribs.

What is funny is that he is still doing that in a thread that he hasn't even appeared in yet!

That is how bad it is!

It's like Desktop Publishing, but in 3-D.  Now everyone can make poorly designed stuff!

Meh to do anything other then PVC or PLS filament costs too dam much. Sure you can do a lot with PVC or PLS, but I still have not figured out how to keep the vibrators from being damaged when printing. Also I would love to do some more natural textured dildos, pocket pussies, and vibes but still have not figured that out. They are great for plastic paddles or clamps though.
