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

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.
