  • I no longer like 3D printing

    Takes too damn long... It's the CNC mills fault.

      I never did.
      The ones at work are always broken down
      and never print right.

            Think about it - there wasn't subtractive machining until there was additive.. There wasn't an acoustic guitar until the electric came out..

                    Fut the Wuk. Before there was subtractive machining, there was additive. Add more metal to the melt.
                    I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-

                        I am 3D printing right now, printing organizer bins for my new rolling cart that I will keep my mill and lathe tools in. But 1.5 hours per tray for each TTS mill holder is a bit much.

                            Spoken like someone who has never dealt with 15,000pc run with a 90 second cycle time or a 10 hour runtime you need to babysit.

                            Each tool has it's place.
                            If you think you understand what is going on, you haven't been paying attention.
