    Romel,

    Will it do this?

    Don't think so! MIGHT (someday) be ok for miniature stuff!? But, very interesting in the ever changing Teknowledgy though.

      Holy cow, I just saw the future!

      I remember when I saw the first dot matrix printer and watched it print a page in like 30 seconds and thought that was awesome. Now I'm getting annoyed when my color laser needs 5 seconds to warm up.

      Someday they (maybe not us anymore) will reminisce and laugh at those 3D printer guys who printed stuff in layers that took hours and days for a model while they push a button and presto.

          I'm afraid we're dinosaurs, Dave. Remember what happened to them!

            Yeah. But it took a big rock to do it -- they did not die from their own hands/claws/paws/tentacles/tendrils/pinchers. We will. One big EMP/sun eruption/power grid hack and we're through. Animals will eat anything. We forgot how. No electricity. No us. We've painted our selfs into a corner.

                  Combined with their vast ignorance and hubris. The central theme was that no matter how learned or accomplished, we are all subject to base emotions - pride, jealousy, rage, desire. The fictional Krell's technology allowed the metaphysical to be transmuted into the physical, unstoppable monsters and all.

                    Thats sooooooo old i had to research it.

                    Hahaha

                    the 3d printed trash can in tve other thread, however, was a good one! Reminds me of the game "subnautica". One high-tech tool, some raw materials, push the button, voila a submarine!

                      As Morbius put it, "the mindless primitive". Our basic selves. We're not as far removed from the Caves as we would suppose.

                          It will make your part in 20 seconds, but like shapeways will charge you $1500.00 for a tooth pick.

                            LOL so true.

                            Or Sculpteo. No wait, I take that back, they will refuse to print it for ideological reasons in the first place.

                              I had to google that. Never watched that movie. My first sci-fi show was "Raumstation Orion". I'm 100% sure nobody has ever heard of that on here (except perhaps for a few old Germans).

                              Anyhow, I got your point.
