    I have a very strict R&D grant, so I can't do cashies.
    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    Yeah it would actually be easier for me to buy the machine myself than to do a cashie. Job won't be for another month or two anyway so there's no rush.

    Hey Bill I need some printing done.
    Do not listen to anything this man says. They are insane, illogical thoughts propagated by us, the voices in his head.

    If it's modelled somewhere in 3D then I should be able to print it.

    Yep, can do.
    It'll be smaller than the real thing though. And with that site you need to register and (sometimes?) pay for the models.
    www.thingiverse.com is all free but they don't have anything like that.

    I see there are chocolate extrusion heads available. Hmm...
    Is it crazy how saying sentences backwards creates backwards sentences saying how crazy it is?

    Tricky ....
    I have to get Sketchup to read that file, then export it to .DXF format, then use Autocad to convert that to .STL format.
    I hope the thing breaks down into separate pieces so I can print them out as it ends up a lot nicer that way.
    Gimme a day or so to find out.

    More tricky .... it's in multiple pieces and I'm having trouble exporting it to STL format. I'll have to do some research to figure out how to fix that.

    Thats the same 3d printer (abet a newer version) that I used to play with at work.. very cool bit of gear.

    Bill, does your machine have a support material as well at the part material? The Dimension SST had a brown material that dissolved in a chemical solution.

    Yes, though it can mostly be pulled/snapped away with your fingers and sometimes needs a bit of help with a knife.

    Yeah that's in multiple pieces but I can only print out what's been given to me. The printer software can't alter the size of just one section of the part, only the entire object as a whole.
