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!)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
