Anyone into it? Know anything about it? Even do it commercially?

I work for a Stratasys dealer and we have a dozen machines. i've made a number of my own projects, from camera mounts to a shear pin "holster" for my snow thrower and a flag bracket for my Triumph Tiger. A co-worker made a sun hood for a Garmin Zumo.

You rang?

Getting into it. Suddenly know more about it than I think I want too... but its sure fun. Time consuming. Hard. Did I mention fun? Still on the spendy end of fun (I can't afford it, I talked my school into letting me buy it for my classroom) and definitely NOT plug and play, but with persistence, a sense of adventure, and the belief that you, too, can do hard things, it can happen. See my thread, referenced above.

We have been using it at our lab for a few years for rapid proto-typing and I am seriously looking into this as a start up company. Cost up front...high; ROI on investment almost immediate; building cool stuff for yourself...definitely.
Life is the last thing you experience before you is what you do every day to get you to that point...

I read somewhere that somebody's sporting most of a skull that was printed for their head

Edit: Of course it was here on this site - Current Events Skills: This place haz 'em.
I know I'm feeling badly when I have no interest in speeding
