Eleri: Quantum Apostrophe: hardinparamedic: I CHOOSE YOU, TECHNOBEVETS![fc09.deviantart.net image 850x478]Please describe what you have 3D printed , how much it cost, what it was, why you did it that way, and if you did it at home.I'll...actually take you up on that.I had printed a Picatinny rail attachment to replace the back end of a Hasbro LTAR lasertag gun so that I could attach a sight for outdoor lasertag games that I've run for years with a friend. It cost ~$20, including shipping, and I had Shapeways make it for me. It would have cost less to manufacture by hand (probably about $15 including a plastic rail), but I managed to get a part that fit the exact shape snugly, and attached in exactly the manner I wanted it to. Oh, and once I've gotten my second revision and have worked out the bugs I can share this design with everyone who wants one.
GreenAdder: Ooh. So does this mean I can call anyone who's against 3D printing a "Nazi?" And I can bemoan how my precious 3D printing rights may be taken away? And I should be able to 3D print in a restaurant, or a store, or anywhere I choose, because if people don't like inhaling the byproduct of my habit, it's their problem and not mine?Can this be that thread?
BizarreMan: What happens if you smoke a 3D printed cigarette?
basemetal: I remember the first time the wife fired up a new laminator in the house instead of the garage. Holy hell the fumes were toxic smelling./she didn't have to be told not to do that again
