Cadman-LT, no, I don't have a LEAP. Why do you ask?

Cadman-LT, you said, "Making a part, or engineering one for that matter is not like making a copy at the copy machine. It's just not the same thing." My point is, that yes it's now very similar with this new Zeus multi-functional machine, in the sense that you can now copy an object like you can copy a piece of paper. I find that amazing. Obviously, it's a different process from designing a part.

Ann, did you get a LEAP? I was wondering how they were. Ever have one of those weeks where everything goes totally wrong? I'm living that week and it's only Tueesday...hehe

That is neat that you can do that though!

Ann, I never said that that wasn't possible. I was talking about making designs, not copying an object. I was just saying this isn't the same as copying a piece of paper. It is if you copy an object I suppose, but I was referring to sending in designs.

Cadman-LT, making a copy with the press of one button--a 3D copy of a 3D object--is in fact now possible. See this story today:

Ann, I'm sorry. I am trying to wrap my head around why they would do this...and I can't. lol

I do see one up-side. We might see some designing that is out of the box. I can see that....but for UPS to do this I think is ridiculous.

You'll have kids, and people that have no sense sending you designs that aren't possible. I just have concerns.

In this slideshow's latest crop of new bio-based and renewable plastics and methods for making them, some materials can even be completely recycled several times without loss of original properties.
It's probably too late to buy one, but some lucky people will soon be the owners of only 50 electric motorcycles made entirely with 3D printing from a super-lightweight aluminum alloy.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory has developed a surface preparation method to improve joining carbon composites with aluminum, with potentially far-reaching ramifications for high-volume industrial applications.
Our latest crop includes ABS alternatives, tougher PLAs, flexible plastics including a flexible nylon, polymers with better heat resistance, and the first biocompatible resin for desktop 3D printing.
New and improved fastening methods are helping engineers join plastics, composites, and thinner metal sheets in a variety of product assemblies.
