    Just a reminder, but NASA's 3D printer gets launched in about 5 hours.
    Stop motion film uses 3D printing to make the millions of figures needed for the film.


    If that's the kind of color they can get from a full color 3D printer, I'm hugely impressed.

    :( They've had to scrub the launch, and its unlikely it'll lift-off before the 23rd.

    3D printed magnifying lens. The final polishing is done by hand, but it still opens up some interesting possibilities.

    Also, I would have expected this kind of ruling from the 9th District, not the 5th. Interesting.

    Edit: Any further discussion about the decision would probably be better rendered in the Red Room, not here in Techforge.
