Ultimaker and the rest of world

Recommended Posts

I was talking about 3d printing and the Ultimaker with a group of colleagues when another one approached and asked what I was talking about.

So I said "Well I have a 3D printer and was talking about that" he looked at us with the face of someone who's smarter than the rest of the world and said "Well...it ain't that big of a deal..it's actually unhandy as you then have to wear 3D glasses to see what you've printed" and left.

I have to admit it was a good laugh in the end.

Anyone else had similar funny experiences when talking about their 3D printers? :)

I usually have the cube gears around with me to show people. But I usually show them before I tell them that I printed them or that I have a 3D printer. When people ask "where did you get this?" I tell them "I downloaded it". Confuses the hell out of them, very funny :) the whole concept of downloading a physical thing is lost to most people.

It does start the nice discussion about sharing designs with everyone. Which is good. (And, yes, I would download a car!)

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
