    I watched a demonstration of this the other day and I am really into it. I can use it for replacement of items that I need for my work. I am into it!

    I think it's going to be a big game changer!!

    What do you guys think?

    Practical or not?

    I'll probably get a 3D printer later this year. That would save lots of money on parts for my bicycles and RC copters.

    I need to see a demonstration in person, to fully understand it. And can you replicate existing things you already own, or do you select from a software menu? There are a lot of broken things I'd like to repair/replace, that I can't obtain from the original manufacturer. And what choice of materials do you have? Is it all done with plastics? Many parts on a bicycle are metal, of course. Will it make a rubber bicycle brake pad? Can I create a rear bike light? What about a helmet?

    for every engineering project all of the early alpha mechanical components are 3d generated. Notice these generated parts lack some of temperature or durability requirement.

    I can't answer those questions at the moment, but I'll be doing some research before buying the printer. It'll definitely be an exciting learning curve.

    Think of the possibility of this (although I don't really understand it quite yet) for trim pieces, currently made from unobtainiam for old collector cars.

    Yeah, Paul, please keep us informed if you would. You'd be quite a help as one of the more technically inclined around here. There are probably a bunch of us interested.

    I did order the VPI Classic Signature Rosewood with the 3D tonearm. The arm on the right is the 3d arm and with a Koetsu Rosewood. This is the first high end audio application for the 3D printing that I'm aware of.

    There are 13,400 albums downstairs waiting to get loose.

    As soon as Art_Deco orders some 3d printed egg cups you guys can be in 3d heaven.
