I was recently surprised that two intelligent posters thought I was BS'ing them about 3D copying. They thought it was crazy Kayser shtick. For anyone not aware of it,check out the Youtube video of a wrench being copied, a perfect duplicate of the wrench put in the machine.
I don't claim to understand the technology behind it. What I can foresee, years up the road, is the ability to copy units of blood, food, and water thereby solving problems humanity is facing.
What about copying people? I feel I can speak for seven million Jewish males, worldwide, when I say, we don't give a **** about any stinking wrench. Give us our own Kate Upton. We have no idea what to do with a wrench but we have an idea what to do with Kate. Obviously, a wrench is composed of one substance, the metal. Duplicating red blood cells, wbc's, platelets, albumin and antibodies is going to be a lot harder.
Back to copying humans----it's going to be tough to create a functioning brain, spleen, liver etc.
Kayser's prediction. Once the ability to copy humans arrives, you will be able to get a copy of a Kate Upton with a brain, and who can speak for 20,000$. If you want one without a brain or speech it will cost 50,000$.
My next missive will be about the next Pope- be prepared.
Meanwhile, you tech guys, please fill in the masses about 3D technology. Right now you can buy a 3D copier for just 2100$. This has been brought to you as a public service announcement.
Best wishes, The Kays
LOL, good ole Kayser always on the ball.
I stuck my junk in the machine and out came a PSU fan.
I had to use the reduce function in order to fit it onto a piece of paper.
What's to stop you from copying a handgun even at this point in time. Fight The Power.
it's cool technology...been around the manufacturing industry for a while. Z Corp is the provider I know of for the 3D modeling software and the printer. about $2500 for software and another $75K + for the printer and you can build color 3D model from drawings uploaded via the software. I have a couple clients in the custom engineered product space and the time/cost savings can pay for one of these baby's after modeling one product.

Can you imagine what patent problems there are going to be with this technology. If I'm not mistaken this can't build any interior areas other than voids/not voids. No circuity etc...
This is going to be perfect for medical uses... build a bad knee so that you can see the problems in 3-D before surgery.
Good to hear from streak dad and Rkoh, two guys who know something about the technology.
