3d printing is just the latest iteration of this technology. A mate of mine has been working for a printing company for 25 years. Traditional printing started to stagnate at the turn of the century and they started looking for other lines to pursue, to bring in other business.
They were successful implementing some more cutting edge technology and for the last few years they have been printing medical catheters.

In the US they are "printing" calcium based ceramic artificial bone for cranioplasty.
But I think frequently snapped plastic parts are more realistic for every day use.

My spelling is not bad. I am typing this on a Medigenic keyboard and I blame that for all my typos.

Goeff,
Think you could build me a manual for an eschmann ets-3 test set?

Sorry Dave, you're going to have to print your own from the stuff I left behind a couple of years ago at that shed in Bedfordshire. frown

@Dave: see this earlier thread for further clues of a cryptic nature (I wasn't able to link to this yesterday due to "internet problems"). But the information was provided by one kind member of this forum, and the test set itself was donated by another. And (as I have already hinted at) all happily came together at that place where strange folk once worked. whistle

Meanwhile ... back to 3-D printing ... smile

Hi Geoff

The answer to your original question? Low cost 3D scanner for starters...

H'mmm. So they're being overwhelmed with buyers ... but won't be shipping until October?

Who's making this thing ... Sir Clive? think

Here's something else you can pre-order to "be part of history". whistle

See here for more.

The Next Next Big Thing (until the next one)?

Something new:- Brother ScanNCut.

I'm told that you can "scan any picture, plan or diagram into the CM-900, and the machine will cut it out in many different mediums"!

It's a standalone unit; no PC required. It is designed for cutting card up to 450 gsm, fabric, leather, plastic up to 1.5mm, plywood and MDF.

Sounds like fun! smile

Has anyone had a go?


If you don't inspect ... don't expect.

Looks a nice bit of kit.
