Its nice to see 3d printers that uses ordinary printer paper, that seems very cost efficient. Thanks for sharing this.

It seems like the 3D printing market is throwing out curveballs lately when it comes to technology innovations and price points. The latest pitch I came across is from Mcor Technologies , a company based in Ireland that bills itself as the only maker of a printer that uses ordinary A4/letter-size printer paper, instead of the powdery plastic or resin substances employed by most competitors for inkjetsuperstore  hp 96, to make 3D objects. You read that right. I said ordinary paper. Before you get too skeptical, check out some of the Mcor Technologies YouTube channel videos

This will deninitely reduce the operating cost and will encourage the rapid prototyping domain. with the enhanced recyclability this is a great product.

I never said print the coins, I said print the dies.

At which point, you would use gold, unless your crazy and want to try and use tungsten(for the weight)

Read my post again, Im done trolling on here

Do you think that would work, keepinitril?  Fake bills are successful because they are passed to unsuspecting store clerks for a bag of groceries (or a TV or whatever).  The Eagles tend to be traded by people who know a thing or two about bullion.  At a miniumn, they would need to get the final weight right as well as include some type of gold plating to fool the surface tests.

Thanks for the explanation, RNDDUDE. That was not apparent in the article but it makes a lot more sense than what I was imagining. But--whoah! That density is amazing.

Im not saying its impossible, I am saying someone with time will be able to do it. And exactly as you said, the Cubans bleach ones and print 50s over them.

As I said, a 1995 series note would be difficult to detect the fake, especially if its printed on 1s.

More importantly, think about this, have you ever heard of the Omega Counterfeiter?He made Saint-Gaudens twenty-dollar gold pieces. Someone could buy an American Gold Eagle, run it through the NextEngine and print some dies. Im sure you could make some good copies.

Now youre able to print some real money.

This might work for the printers that use powdered metals.  On the other hand, depending on what gear it is, it might need hardening.  Actually, haven't we seen this on Star Trek, or something similar?

Those measures were necessary becuase color copiers had become so good.  The early ones copied at something like 98% of original size so that you could tell it was a copy.  Nevertheless, I knew a guy in a copy room who made fake IDs using these copiers.  His IDs were not necessarily copies of actual IDs.  This was in Washington, DC, and there were so many obscure Federal Agencies that no one really knew.

I remember seeing a 'Printer' at a machine tool show in Santa Clara, Calif. in about 1995-96 that used the paper on the roll, I think it was coated with plastic, and each layer was pressed by a heated platen. At that time, the liquid polymer with laser was about the only other printer around.
