Re: [Z_Scale] Re: 3D Printer tech taking off
I have already told Stony that he can put one of those 'good' 3D printers
under my Christmas tree this year. He mumbled something about not having my
address and needing to put new tires on his car........... I think he is
trying to nicely tell me to go take a hike....hmmmmm.

Thanks much Melissa.. I had no clue that you had bought some items.
Shapeways tells me WHAT was ordered, not WHO ordered it.. That's one of the
great things about Shapeways, they're a young company, but they've got a
grown-up attitude about privacy concerns and customer service.
There are advances in the RP field every day. I look forward to the time
when I can make even the pickiest rivet-counter happy.
Or.. maybe I don't look forward to that day.. hm........
Yes, you can have your own printer for $400, but don't expect the surface
finish of such printed items to be anywhere near what you you would call
smooth". You're also usually left with programming your own micro-computer
for it, which is not for the faint of heart.
