>>10468190I got one of the printrbot kits back when home 3d printing was just emerging. printed a couple of things and haven't touched it in years.
>>10468402Why, when it only costs 298 yen at your local supermarket?
>>10468190a gf. Stuff that your printer can't print.
>>10468190Parts, mostly just parts...Like for ARM clusters if you want to build some computer with more than 100 cores yourself, you probably need to print a case.
>>10469434This project has failed. Ten years later and they are no where close to printing an entire printer.
>>10469587How do you want to print an step engine? Like do you really think that you'll print a coil and it'll be more efficient than wiring it from a wire?
Wait for the next generation.
>>10469587It didn't fail. They made 3d printers main stream and much cheaper. 3d printers used to be completely inaccessible, but reprap showed that 3d printers could be made cheaply. There are actually some efforts that are getting close to that goal though.>>10469602You don't necessarily need to use coils of wire to make a stepper motor, there are other means of making coils of wire besides printing...
>>10468258this but unironically
>>10469615Resins is expensive and smells worse than weebs lair.
>3d printers will never be able to print a 100% complete and functional product hot off the printing bed>pure carbon can be organized in such a way as become an insulator, conductor, transistor, transformer, capacitorJESUS CHRIST WHEN CAN WE GET 3D PRINTED CARBON?
>>10470862Scientists can grow carbon nanotubes about effectively as a a 13 year old boy can grow a mustache. It's gonna be awhile.
>>10470891>effectively as a a 13 year old boy can grow a mustacheWe need more Mexican scientists working on it.
>>10470891a dirt 'stache counts
>>10468190morty, if i can get this thing to print out molecular structures from atoms im going to make soooo much drugs and booze.
>>10470551I thought the same. Fuck.
>>10470546Depends on the resin. The cheap stuff was at-parity with average filament costs years ago.
Print my Netflix passwordA 3D printed password is better than writing down the password on paper. I wrote several passwords down on paper and the ink faded, and the paper tore into two pieces, some passwords are lost because of this.
