Tinkercad (design for 3D printing)
Has anyone used this yet? https://tinkercad.com/about/

The library just got a 3D printer for anyone to use (as well as other fun stuff, like Espresso Book Machine, green screens, digital conversion hardware and game consoles).

I'm freaking out a little. The public can go play and use all this. 3D printer is $0.10 CAD per gram of filament.

So much to learn!

What would you create? Now that it's possible that I can do this myself to some degree, I am drawing a blank! WTH.

Awesome!

It won't be long when we have 3D printers at home. I remember when colour laser printers first came out. Ooooh! You had to go to a print shop to get your documents printed in "high resolution" colour. Similarly for photo-quality inkjet printers. Now (2D) printers are cheaper than their ink.

I would start with something small like a piece of (faux) kitsch jewellery, a ring in a gaudy colour. Smile

Yeah, I'm thinking a miniature series of a whole bunch of random stuff. Some salt and pepper shakers, some centaurs, and maybe some official TTA awards I could mail out or something. Ha ha.

I'd be kinda scared for 3D printers to be used in people's homes. Some crazy people can make some crazy things.

well an ashtray is probably not a good idea.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".
