We live in interesting times.

we have a 3d pritner on our UNI, it takes something like 1 week to sculprit a 20 cm statue of liberty, its cool tough, soem student can actually be granted access to it and print out some plastic parts for projects.

If i ever grab one, i will print out a joystick

The most interesting bit is not the 3D printing.

What is interesting is the US lawyers for Games Workshop are trying to introduce precedents wherein you can claim copyright to someone else's original work just because it has a similar "style" to yours.

That could have vast implications in music and art.

I sa a firm on youtube who boasted they could print anything so I sent them a KG13 blue print and asked for a quote, this is their lame reply:

Quote:
Hi Rudolf,

Thanks for your enquiry, for us to print a part we need a file called a .STL file this stands for Standard Triangular Language this file is produced from C.A.D software and represents the physical shape of the model you want making.

Sorry we could not help on this occasion

Best regards

It's not lame. your blueprint wasn't 3d - turning it into one is the expensive part.
Laserscanning an existing could be cheaper, maybe.

Yea ok so we have identified two things wrong with this market...

1.) Companies do not want to risk designing things wrong so they let the customer design it... Thereby any mistakes are the customers - no refunds! Showing a lack of skill and professionalism in my opinion.

I could take a blue print to an engineering firm and there would be no problem with the drawing.


2.) A customer is expected to own software from anyware between £365 GBP to £1179 GBP and be able to use the software to design his object.

So its 400 quid before you even start!

I found this softwares in a quick search -

3.) if I had one to laserscan I would not need one to be 3D printed....

This is case specific but Im adding it anyway.
