"I can't, Sarge, the printer is buffering!..."

"Dammit, where is my cover fire?"

Speaking of, anyone know a good .stl file for tentacles?

Why do I get the mental image of a normal warhead suddenly becoming an accidental MIRV?

It'll be awesome when zero-g experiments at the ISS w/ 3D printing revolutionize space travel, terraforming, and the pursuit of immortality all at once.

The entire U.S. Army, collectively, couldn't 3D print their own ass without a 10 level TM written by a contractor with lots of pictures and a comic book bundle of PS monthly.

/Veteran, U.S. Army

Fun image.

But space-x is using this tech for their rocket motors.

PC load letter?  What the fark does that mean?

All that 3D printing is excellent for prototyping, but bloody useless, so far, for mass production. Those designer warheads cost a lot, you know, and an army spends unholy amount of them in any conflict, even small.

Would be great for assassination of high-value targets, though. :)

Dammit Corporal Davies, I told you to make sure you were not sharing local printers through the RDP session! Why do you find the concept of Printer ID's so difficult to understand? Get your sorry ass over to the mess for KP, while I decide if you get to be called PRIVATE Davies from now on!

/Actually have this exact problem with the software I support and install.

I can see it now.
Special Forces demands it, uses it once, and forgets about it in six months.
The Rangers hear that SF has it, demand it, try to use it a few times and lose interest when they realize it doesn't have any advantage over the Carl Gustav 84mm recoilless.
The Infantry hears that the SF and Rangers have it, demand it, break it with only minor injuries and collateral damage, and insist that it is too unreliable and unsafe to be in use by the Army.
The cavalry scouts hear about it, scratch their heads as to the point of it, and go back to making little figures out of C-4.
Armor hears about it, points, and laughs, as it has no advantage over a 120mm smooth bore.

The Marines hear about it, get the Army to fund it for them, issue it to every MEU, and can't afford the printer cartridges, so quietly throw it overboard during the midwatch.
