  1. A 3D printy thing

    Pretty cool. Can do all kinds of filaments (including metal, wood, even carbon fiber?) for $200. Good quality too, about equal to the $2500 Makerbot I have at work. However, it can only go as big as 120mm cubed, though there are people modding them to go bigger

    Here's my hello kitty

    I have some experience with a makerbot so I'm not totally new, but it's pretty easy to learn the basics especially these days since theres so much out there. This specific model has only been out a few months but there's tons of detailed reviews out and has an active FB group with over 2000 people. There's a lot of people modifying them too (which I will be doing some as well). 3D printing is good in that you can get as deep into it as you want, but if you just want some simple fun fooling around with the stuff, it's still pretty approachable
  7. make a model of your penis and mail them to the members of this forum pls
  8. Well it can't do longer than 4 3/4" so yeah I totally can
  9. Can it print GI-Joes?
  10. Looks so chinese
  11. That makes sense because it is a rebadged model from some Chinese company I think

  18. Some new prints. I've mostly been testing, but the last one is the first actually functional thing I've made. It's a little gate that mounts to a light switch to make sure I don't accidentally turn my garbage disposal on

    I didn't realize that the printers these days can do long unsupported bridges, the spiral thing has a 2" span. This makes it so much better because you don't have to print a support piece that you have to remove later
