3D Printers

Well I said I was going to learn to blog…but as you can see I haven’t followed up.

So here I am still trying to learn about the 3D Printers and how they would be useful in our homes or work place.

I can see a 3D Printer for medical solutions and there are some really neat videos about reconstructing a broken jaw out there.

So why would I purchase a 3D Printer? Well honestly I wouldn’t! I don’t have a need for one.

However that being said, someone said to me just to think about the development of printers for the past 15 years, so I did some reflecting.  Going back 15 years, even the idea of having a laser printer in your home was unthinkable due to the cost, and now it is what I recommend to individuals as they are very cost effective. Who knew 15 years later you could purchase a monochrome laser printer for under $ 100.00!!!! So who knows with the 3D Printer in 15 years they might well be in every home and business. I was told there is a documentary on Netflix regarding 3D Printing, and that is my evening TV viewing.

3D Printers are new,and a novelty right now for the home user, but as our world, and technology changes they could very well become the “norm”.

We actually look forward to the time we have one on our bench for repair!

 

 

 

This is a first for me, I have never blogged, I have never written a diary, and I have never written anything since university days for someone else to read. So here goes a new venture. I will try and keep the blogs short but informative. I will try and answer any questions that you may have.

The topics will vary, but all will be somehow related to technology, ie netoworking, tablets, phones, and all things that print.

The newest is the 3D Printers, and I know nothing about them, so maybe we’ll all learn together.

So I will just add a little foot note here…the Worlds First 3D Printed Car…ahh but what was printed, if you expect a complete car you’re wrong, it is just the body with the rest added later. Like one of the comments said a kit car.

As we move forward, YES, printing a car sounds fasinanating, and it is but there are still lots after it is printed to add. Hey on CSI the other night they had a printed gun, that supposedly worked, REALLY? Ok I understand a broken chess piece, and even a jaw replaced, but I think we still have a long way to go yet.
