3D Printing

Watched and DVR'd a CBS news article on 3D Printing.

so, I started looking around http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmDz7Q9_h6c

what I'm thinking is something like this would help with restoration projects on old boats, or cars, etc.....
Just fabricate the part needed in your garage!

entire dashboard PRINTED! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIbyY...feature=relmfu

I have a 3d printer. They are definately cool, but I don't really know how feasible they would be in a home garage application unless you are very well financed

I'll research the info more

I would expect that if it is that low that the capacity is small. Engineering labor is the most expensive part for me when talking about creating a design/part/etc. If you already have the dimensions in an engineering design format (cad) then it is very cost effective.

I've got a buddy that's going to college now...... they engineer stuff for grades.

wonder how much deflection there'd be in 3D printed propeller

a bunch if you want to keep the same dimensions as current material metal props. A prop would be too high a stress environment at least with the material we are using. But I'm not on the cutting edge of the material science part of 3d printing.

Used to work for a company that would use one to make prototype horns for concert loudspeakers. From what I remember, the matieral in the prototype was far inferior to that used in the injection molds. Basically they break easily.
The guy who made the bimini must have a printer that is much stronger..?

I'm just hearing about 3D Printing..... I know, I've been living under a rock

but, just imagine where this technology will lead in in 5 more years
