Ox, 3-D printing has absolutely captured me. I feel like a chimpanzee that woke up one morning and discovered that he had an opposable thumb. All the stuff that was locked away in our head can now be actualized in the real world.@RocketST just wanted to chime in again and say good work. I won't be buying this, but it's cool to watch the development of a part, especially if it's from another ST owner and not a big business.
I wish there were a wider selection of 3D printers available. I think the workspace size is an issue for a lot of the printers that are available on the market. I've considered trying to have a part produced through 3D printing but the part would be too big for most printers.
I was hoping that some of the Forum members would enjoy seeing how these processes work. I'm glad that you've found it interesting. And you are right that there are some size limitations for direct additive manufacturing. But, there are virtually no limits when you consider hybrid 3-D technologies. There are now 3-D scanners being used by boat builder's to make bass fishing boats. If I can be of any assistance to you in investigating potential product development ideas, don't hesitate to contact me. I really enjoy hearing new ideas, particularly from those such as yourself, who have shown their hands on abilities. Thanks for your interest and support. It is not only greatly appreciated, but when things get tough, it's what keeps me going. JP
