DailyDirt: Even Cooler 3D Printers On The Way

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Most homes don't have a 3D printer... yet. But just as most homes didn't have a "computer" or an internet connection just a few years ago, technology can change quickly, and 3D printers could become ubiquitous relatively quickly. With 3D printers in your kitchen or living room, you could print up a Left Shark whenever you felt like it, but hopefully, no one will be doing that too often. If you already have a MakerBot or some other 3D printer, check out a few other developments that could be nice to have. After you've finished checking out those links, take a look at our Daily Deals for cool gadgets and other awesome stuff.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

    Printing furniture so I don't have to move it sounds good, as long as I can break it down and throw it in the recycling bin.

    But think of the children. we will have to find some other way for those poor starving designers to get paid since 3d piracy will make people not want to be designers.

    But don't worry the MIAA (manufacturer industry association of America) will put messages into every design telling people that bought plans legally to not pirate the plans. If we let everyone print their own stuff then we will have complete anarchy since law enforcement won't be able to get accurate layouts of the furniture before they SWAT a house.

    3D Printing a 3D printer

    The real money is when someone can just print a 3D printer. But then I'm sure someone will try to print a 3D printer that is currently printing a different 3D printer. Then we all are doomed!
