But this guy, :bow Alexandre Chappel has become a big fan of mine,because he has other better machines in his workshop and yet he chooses to play around and come up with all sorts of new gadgets that he wouldn’t have if he didn’t have his 3D printer..:love
He makes good videos!

I wasn't planning to watch this one, but once I started, I couldn't stop. His design, prints, ideas, etc. are so incredible!

Me either. But I did!

346 hours of printing and months involved. Reminds me of someone on the forum and a certain light post. Hmmm, now who could that be? :frow

The spirit of adventure and exploration is alive and well on this forum! :thumbsup

I wish I had that guy's design skills!

It would have taken me 100 failed prints and 1,000 designs for each and every part that probably only took him 1-3 iterations.

I’m sorry @stratman if all this information on 3D printing and the many things that can be made are annoying you to distraction, and Ido understand you’d love to get stuck in and participate yourself but you don’t have the space to accommodate a 3D printer.. Sorry..:hugs

Stay tuned for more crazy 3D adventures, the asylum door is open because we’ve made a duplicate key.. :weee

Feeling good today, are we, trying reverse psychology on me. :eek:

One day - maybe - but not today, my friend!

@stratman, you have no escape. 3D world surrounds you,

Possibly I’ll join ... when I have the money, working space and time to master the trade. Not tomorrow, not next month.
Frankly folks, you should be more than glad if you live long enough to see my first 3D print. ;)

I took the blue pill and for now remain blithely and ignorantly unaware in the Matrix. :weee
