Pretty amazing stuff... I didn't think the hand I printed was so useful  compared to something that's 42k!
 
Wow, this is unbelievable almost... #3dprinting
Over the last several months, some of the more inspiring stories around 3D printing have had to do with the printing of prosthetic devices, particularly hands.

Cornell researchers in Hod Lipson's Creative Machines Lab have 3-D printed a working loudspeaker, seamlessly integrating the plastic, conductive and magnetic parts, and ready for use almost as soon as it comes out of the printer.
It's an achievement that 3-D printing evangelists feel will soon be the norm; rather than assembling consumer products from parts and components, complete functioning products could be fabricated at once, on demand.

Me, after blindly copying a load of code into a project expecting it not to work.

Holy Nexus 4 deal. Prices just dropped by $100.

So I bought some new PLA filament from repraper.com, a company in China.  I ordered 5 X 1KG spools.  For a total of ~$140 CAD, shipped from China in 4 days! (I later found out that FedEx sent me a letter for the taxes/duty fees adding another $14...)

The color of the filament is more translucent then I expected and the extrusion temps were much higher than my first spool of white PLA... BUT all that aside, the prints coming from the blue at least look pretty good!  I printed http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:50716 and the cool thing about this print is it customized with 3 words I added.  I couldn't think of what to use so I just used "Gumpwa", "Luong", "Cube"... creative, I know!

The weird thing was the spool for the blue was different from the other 4... so I have to print 2 different spool holders...!

The future of mobile is starting to look a lot less predictable -- and a lot more interesting.

Lithophanes!!

So I saw this cool translucent print and I just had to do it!  So it took a pic of me and make it into a 3D model!!  I am quite impressed with the results...  Obviously I couldnt just stop there!

I decided to try out http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:114947.  The difference here is my portrait was printed flat while the Starry Night was printed vertically!  Mine was a test and took 30mins... The Starry Night took 7 hours!

I am happy with the results and think I've had my lithophane fix for now...

Semi-NSFW but so funny...
 
This is LOL-worthy.
